We are USC's Vietnamese Student Association

Our Mission

The USC Vietnamese Student Association strives to serve both USC student body and the local Los Angeles community. Through the promotion of cultural projects and events, we hope to enrich campus life and become a significant part of the diverse college community. Our goals for the following year include:

Expanding our membership and retaining active members from the student body and especially the Vietnamese student body

Increase participation within the Vietnamese community within the Los Angeles area as well as the Southern California region

Promote our Vietnamese heritage and educate those that are interested in Vietnamese culture

About Us

In 1976, it all began...

...when a small group of Vietnamese immigrants came together to unite a culture within the diverse student body of USC and formed the Vietnamese Student Association. Since then, it has grown into an intimate, active, and dynamic organization that aims to promote the Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American culture on campus as well as in the greater Los Angeles community. The members of USC VSA embrace their heritage as they contribute back their community. Enhancing the collegiate experience, USC VSA organizes cultural, political, social, and educational activities for students of all backgrounds, illuminating multiple aspects of the Vietnamese culture. We believe that the understanding of culture is essential for a holistic academic experience, and each year, we strive to implement community service projects to directly benefit the city of Los Angeles. USC VSA is a reflection of the Trojan family, or gia dinh, which stands for the goal of benefiting and improving the lives of everyone around them.

Executive Board

Get to know our upcoming 2015-2016 executive board!
Phoonie Ngo
As Sponsorship Director last year, Phoonie made it rain for VSA, and now she’s bringing her skills to the table as co-president
Teresa Pham
Last year, Teresa upped VSA’s aesthetics game as Media Director, and this year she’ll be bringing that to APASA as Graphics Director outside of her time for VSA. Teresa loves to dance despite her obvious lack of skill– turn on any music and she physically can NOT (attempt to) bust a move.
Jennie Lam
Internal Vice President
If she’s not as a VSA meeting, Jennie can usually be found going ham at “Club” Leavey. Swipe her into the dining halls or give her free food, and you’ve found yourself a loyal friend for life.
Hai Vu
External Vice President
Hai won the “Love Me” award during last year’s banquet, and this year she’ll be getting you to do just that as EVP. Beware of any bad pictures of yourself getting into her hands though, because the “Meme Queen” can turn anyone’s face into an overnight sensation (and not always in the most flattering way).
