Vietnamese Week invigorates the APU Campus with color and life

Jun 25, 2007

'Vietnamese Week' is part 2 in APU's ongoing series of "Multicultural Weeks" which commenced on Monday, June 19th.

It commenced with an exhibition of traditional 'Áo dài' costumes and Vietnamese lanterns in the APU Cafeteria, and students were able to sample free Vietnamese coffee.

There are currently 160 students from Vietnam enrolled at APU with approximately 40 students from other countries taking Vietnamese language classes. (As per fall 2006 registration figures)
