The Vietnamese Student Association of the University of Maryland at College Park was founded in 1978 to serve as an educational and social voice for the Vietnamese American community on campus and the DC Metropolitan area. It has maintained a tradition that is full of great achievements, with many blossoming faces that have gone on to all walks of life, showing the world their work, courage, and spirit. These faces have been us, and are still a part of us - The Vietnamese Student Association of UMCP.
We incorporate culture in our organization through our annual culture show, Family Night, and other events throughout the year.
Family is an important part of VSA, and we have a mentorship program called ACE, which stands for Anh Chi Em.
We have won multiple Turkey Bowls (Men's in 2012, 2015, 2016 and Women's in 2011, 2013, 2014) and Intramural Championships (Volleyball in 2019 and Flag Football in 2015)!
Join us as we attend a variety of events with other VSA's around the Mid-Atlantic region!
"VSA will give you experiences of a lifetime! Could not have asked for a better family."
