Okada is Stanford's Asian-American ethnic theme dorm. It is a 4 class dorm that works to promote awareness about Asian-American issues and culture. Although Okada is an ethnic theme dorm, not all of its residents are of Asian descent, allowing for intermingling of Asian and other cultures. Each year a number of priority residents as well as three ethnic theme associates provide ethnic dorm programming and cultural field trips. Each May, they celebrate Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage month, promoting the different programming and events held each year.
