The Philippine American League (PAL) is a multi-cultural organization at RPI dedicated to promoting and celebrating Filipino culture to the local community. We host dance workshops, teach how to cook Filipino food, learn new tagalog words and phrases, and work with a variety of other groups on campus to raise awareness about Filipino culture. The organization has become a standard for culture, diversity and acceptance. We are proud to be pinoy and welcome anyone who wants to learn more about what it is to be Filipino.
PAL was founded in 1993 by a small group of Filipino-American students looking to promote their rich culture and traditions. For the first few years of its life, PAL existed as non-funded club and its leaders struggled to build an organizational foundation and structure in order to gain recognition from the Student Union. In 1996, PAL was officially recognized as a student organization and began to receive funding. Over the years the organization has grown through the inspiration and dedication of strong leaders and alumni. The past and present executive boards have always been dedicated to promoting cultural awareness, unity, and creativity among its members and the RPI community and will continue to do so!
