We are the oldest student-run Asian Pacific Islander Desi American newsmagazine in the nation. Publishing at UCLA since 1977, we showcase rich and diverse stories about the Asian Pacific Islander Desi American community on and off campus through news and commentary.

We create an on-going dialogue that offers insight into the dynamics of being an APIDA. Pacific Ties serves to challenge the perceptions of APIDA identity as well as to celebrate the achievements of the communities we all have ties to.


Where do we get all the moolah to publish the magazine and keep up the costs of running a publication? From the support of readers like you. We’re a non-profit publications (that means we don’t earn any money and we work for free). That’s right. All of our staff members volunteer their time, blood, and sweat so we can all be better informed and critical-thinking people. So we ask that if you enjoyed PacTies–and would like to see bigger, better things for future–please consider a donation of any amount.
