Who We Are
Formally organized in October, 2010 by the Philippine Consulate General Guangzhou, the Guangzhou Filipino Student Union (GFSU) is a group of young Filipino students studying in Guangzhou, China. GFSU, led by its presidents Alfie Magno (2010), Andrie Jamila Co (2011), Alyssa Janine Recto (2012), Joey Colobong (2013) and Charlton Lajara (2014) has since then been actively participating in various activities and performances that showcase the Filipino talents and at the same time promote the Filipino spirit and culture.
What We Do
Guangzhou Filipino Student Union (GFSU) actively participates in numerous activities and performances either inside or outside our campus. GFSU does not restrict itself to just participating in school-organized activities like the Jinan University’s Food Festival, International Culture Fest among others, but also believes in sharing the talents embodying the Filipino spirit in different performances either during the annual Philippine Independence Day Celebration in Guangzhou, or be in a showcase of student talents in other schools and universities or even through short production number during FilCom-organized activities.
What We Believe In
Guangzhou Filipino Student Union (GFSU) is not merely a cluster of students; it is but a family. It is a family whose continuous vision and mission is to unite all Filipino students in Guangzhou, and at the same time be a part of the Filipino Community here in Guangzhou. It does not just constantly work for academic excellence but at the same time promote in the Philippine’s rich culture and heritage. Thus, every participating member serves as the young ambassadors of the Philippines each with their own respective little ways.
