VSA promotes the Vietnamese culture at UCI through creative and entertaining weekly meetings, as well as by offering a wide range of social and cultural activities geared towards varying member talents and interests. VSA members can partake in various activities such as intramural sports, modern dance, traditional dance, lion dance, choir, acting, and much more. Major events hosted annually include the annual Rose Pageant and Vietnamese Culture Night, open to all students and surrounding communities.
The Vietnamese Student Association (VSA) at the University of California, Irvine has striven to educate both the student body at UCI and the local community about the Vietnamese American culture. Our organization continually provides students with the opportunity to learn and to participate in community efforts. In addition to its dedication to the UCI community, VSA also works with the Vietnamese community at large. VSA at UCI has a long and rich tradition within the UCI campus, as well as the community, as we are one of the oldest VSAs in the area. VSA prides itself in its involvement in an array of community-based programs such as a mentorship program with local high schools, participation in the annual Lunar New Years Festival, and numerous activities with other Vietnamese organizations throughout Southern California.
