The Vietnamese Student Organization (VSO) at WTAMU is growing in membership, mission and campus involvement.

The VSO has about 25 members this year. The president of the organization is Hieu Nguyen. He is a graduate student studying Environmental Science. He works to get students involved in VSO.

“The mission of VSO is to help the new Vietnamese students when they come here,” Nguyen said. “We want to show the Vietnamese culture to the American and other students.”

To share more about their culture, the VSO hosted a “Moon Festival” event for the entire student body on Oct. 7. The Wesley Foundation provided the location for this year’s annual event. There were approximately 150 people in attendance.

The VSO shared food, fashion, music and many other aspects of Vietnamese culture.
“They performed and sang and danced,” Hung Do said. “We shared my culture, the story of the full moon festival.”

Do is a member of the organization. He is in the English program and plans to later study environmental science.

The VSO also encourages its members to get involved in other areas of campus and other organizations.

Luat Tran, VSO vice president, also plans to study environmental science after completing the English program.

“Some Vietnamese students are members of SIFE and other organizations,” Tran said. “This helps with English and group work skills and studying about our major.”
