Phở is a noodle soup that is widely considered to be the symbol of Vietnamese culture. With the hope of having more Carleton students know aboutand fall in love withthis delicious dish, Tim Viet organized its annual "What the Pho?" event in Cassat Hall earlier this month. Tim Viet’s members have been cooking and serving the noodle soup to the Carleton community for almost 10 years.

Tim Viet is an association of Vietnamese and Vietnamese American students at Carleton. Its mission is to bring awareness of Vietnamese culture to campusand hopefully beyond Northfield. The ten members aim to provide a supportive environment for students who are interested in learning about Vietnamese customs and cuisine.

“Food is a great way of experiencing another culture,” says Phuong Nguyen ‘18, the president of Tim Viet. “It promotes awareness into the Vietnamese culture and identity here on the Carleton campus.”
