More Information

How it came to be ~
Hmong Student Union was established back in 1987. During it's early years it was originally called Hmong Lao American Student Services (HLASS). At that time there was a good mix of Laosian and Hmong. Then in 1992, HLASS was changed to HSU because the Laosion no longer showed up to the meetings, and all members that were left was Hmong. So in favor of the members, they decided to rename Hmong Lao American Student Services to Hmong Student Union. Then on, the name remained HSU to this very day.
