The University of Central Florida’s Vietnamese American Student Association (VASA) was first established in December of 1982. Throughout these 31 years, VASA has served to help the Vietnamese community within UCF and the Orlando area. The organization was first established as a place for Vietnamese refugees attending UCF. It served as pillar of unity for refugees to feel welcome, safe, and loved in a new foreign land. As the years passed, VASA grew into an organization to promote Vietnamese cultural awareness as a newer generation of Vietnamese Americans emerged. Currently, the Vietnamese American Student Association’s main goals are to promote cultural awareness and promote Vietnamese culture within the UCF community. We strive to instill pride and a sense of culture within Vietnamese Americans today.
