On January 28, the cold weather did not stop the eager Vietnamese students and their families and guests from enjoying the Tet party to celebrate the Vietnamese Lunar New Year. The event was held at the Memorial Union. There was an enthusiastic crowd, great homemade Vietnamese traditional food, plus the usual quality program and demonstration of cultural highlights. It was a fitting cultural event for the Vietnamese and was an excellent demonstration of Vietnam’s most important national event to the guests. The attendance was about 150 guests including Professors and their spouses at MU, along with other American and multinational friends.

The party was also the occasion for the Vietnamese Student Association to recognize the Boards of the Vietnam Institute and the Vietnamese Student Association at MU for their roles in Vietnam and with the Vietnamese people and students.

Everybody had a fun time
