Culture/Identity Based


The purpose of the Vietnamese Student Association is to unite the Iowa State University community with the local Vietnamese community and to create more awareness about Vietnamese culture and history. We will do this through events along with school and community collaborations that not only promote Vietnamese culture and heritage, but also allow members to engage in leadership opportunities, team building, philanthropy, and individual growth.
