Members of XULAVA, Xavier University of Louisiana Vietnamese Association, hosted their annual Tet Night in February to celebrate the lunar new year. There was singing, dancing, and musical performances put on by members of the association and even by members from other universities. XULAVA also performed a skit that portrayed the story of the Nian, a legendary beast that attacks on or around the lunar new year. Guests enjoyed cultural food from local sponsors and socialization with members and people from other universities.
Calvin Pham, the president of XULAVA, says, “Tet night is a time for people to come together and to enjoy each other’s companies.” People of all races, religions, and ages were invited and welcomed.
