VSA gives Vietnamese students a voice

The Vietnamese Student Association (VSA) is the newest club to form on the Richland campus.
Jonathan Ngujen, a student, felt that the large Vietnamese population at Richland needed an organization to give them a voice. However, the club is not only for Vietnamese students, but for any student interested in learning about their culture.
Ngujen founded the club with help from student Tammy Tran, also a student. The club already has 25 to 30 members.
The VSA hosted one of its first events last Wednesday. It was a screening of a television series created by international Richland students. The event was well attended with free food and information provided about the club.
Ngujen plans many more events, including next year's Tet celebration. Tet is the Vietnamese new year, where parents and older people will give their children little red envelopes with money inside. Apart from the money however, the envelopes are meant to symbolize good fortune.
Elections for leadership positions in the VSA will be held next year. More information can be found on the club's official Facebook page, VSA Richland College.
