The event aimed to share Vietnamese cultural with the campus community while creating the festive atmosphere of the New Year that many international students miss while studying abroad.

The crowd enjoyed a fantastic meal catered from Pho Thang Café, with offerings like Vietnamese beef stew, braised pork and eggs, grilled pork with noodles and che for dessert.

In support were members of VSAs from Cleveland State University and the Ohio State University who showed great enthusiasm and cheered for the success of their CWRU counterparts. With such an energetic, committed and positive group of students involved, we look forward to many more exciting activities from the CWRU Vietnamese Students Association.
