Join VSA!

Applications are currently open for Organizing Commitee Members!

Applicants reviewed and accepted on a rolling basis.
Apply here

Organizing Committee Members (OCMs) provide support for events and is where every new member starts at -- so no prior experience necessary. We highly encourage First-Years and Sophomores to apply.

However, being an OCM goes beyond organizing awesome events! You will find a tight-knit Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American community outside of events. People you can hang out with, eat with, study with, and more.
