UNAVSA Awards
————————————————————
On August 3, 2013, at the annual Union of North American Vietnamese Student Associations’ conference, we were awarded “Outstanding Vietnamese Student Association of the Year” and “Outstanding Philanthropic Program” for HOPE. While we strive to do work for our community without the expectation for such awards, we were nevertheless extremely proud, grateful, and honored to be recognized.

** Our Stance Against Janet Napolitano
————————————————————
We expressed our deepest concerns with the appointment of UC President Janet Napolitano via an infographic that detailed the reasons for our misgivings and listed the actions we are calling on Mrs. Napolitano to do. View that infographic here: http://www.vsubruins.com/vsu/napolitano/
