Since our establishment in 2007, VASA has shared the Vietnamese culture and tradition with our community at the University of New Orleans.


Our Goal

We want to enlighten our members, as well as UNO and our surrounding communities, about the rich and fascinating Vietnamese culture and traditions. We also help our members transition into the college lifestyle by providing a friendly and resourceful hand to all members. We take pride in organizing community service opportunities for our members to learn teamwork and leadership values and to give back to their communities. UNO VASA welcomes people from all prospects of life and ethnic backgrounds to join our organization— we’re a diverse, safe space for everyone.

What did I like about VASA? The better question is what did I not like about VASA? Come with an open mind and I promise you will leave with lots of fun memories, future classmates, and life long friends.
— Daniel Ha, UNO VASA President 2013
