Additional Information

University of New Orleans Vietnamese American Student Association, welcomes all prospective members and those who are simply interested in learning about VASA. UNO-VASA dedicates their time and patience to enlighten the community and spread cultural awareness. We accomplish these goals by participating in volunteer work and community service and to spread cultural awareness through events. Our goal is to establish and maintain a strong relationship between our students at UNO and provide guidance to underclassmen to adjust to college life.

VASA, along with other Vietnamese Student Associations around the nation, raise money for a specific charity (selected each year) that provides help to better the way of life in Vietnam.
