Fall of Saigon Workshop

On April 26 the Vietnamese Student Association at UCI sponsored a workshop on the Fall of Saigon and the 25 years of the Vietnamese American experience. Covering the topics of war, adaptation, and acculturation were Mr. Uc Van Nguyen, a former officer in the Southern Vietnamese military; Susie Dong-Matsuda, a bilingual/cultural social worker with the Orange County Department of Mental Health; and Mr. Vu Hoang Pham, a graduate student at Cornell University, currently working on his dissertation on Vietnamese in the United States prior to 1975. A discussion with the audience followed the presentations by the speakers.
