WKU freshman Khoa Nguyen from Boon Ma Thuot, Vietnam, decorates a homemade Hoa Mai tree before the start of the a Vietnamese New Year party put on by Vietnamese Students Association Jan. 28 at the top of Pearce-Ford Tower. The actual holiday, known as Tet Nguyen Dan, was Monday, Jan. 23, but because many students remained home in Vietnam to celebrate, the group held off its party until the weekend.
