Spring Semester Kick-Off



Apologies for the lack of activities with the website for the past few months.  We will do our best to keep the website as updated as our Facebook page.  The next event under VSAM that will be happening is a Buffalo Wild Wings Fundraiser in order to raise money for the biggest event VSAM hosts every year.  That event is Tet Show!  For this fundraiser come eat at the buffalo wild wings located on the University of Minnesota campus- Twins Cities; 10% of your bill will donated towards VSAM if you show them the flyer which is attached to this post or on our facebook event which is also linked to this post.


An event following the Buffalo Wild Wings fundraiser is our Spring Roll Rolling event.  Located in the second floor of Coffman Union Memorial on the University of Minnesota- Twins Cities campus.  Come and make some yummy spring rolls with the current VSAM board and make some new friends as well.  We would love to have you join us for our kick start event of the spring semester.


Lastly, VSAM would like to introduce a membership registration form for those who would like to be more involved. If that is something you are interested in, please follow this link and sign-up! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of our board members.  This link will also be under our “How to get involved” page if it does not work for you through the post.
