dai hoc van lang clb co vl gIf you think joining a club is a waste of time, you may have missed an opportunity to explore, cultivate and promote your own abilities. The way of playing chess also shows the personalities of people. Hidden behind each black-and-white checkman is the individual’s identity. Playing chess is a good way to practice thinking and improve many good qualities such as thoroughness, patience, assertiveness, etc. Every move contains speculation, calculation and a certain strategy. The chess spreads a strange source of positive energy. Anyone who comes to this intellectual sport must be whole-hearted, highly concentrated, and temporarily put away all worries of life. In that moment, people are just themselves.

Van Lang University Chess Club has developed along with the maturity of many generations of students. It connects those who have the same passion to create a strong collective with the slogan "Brain Power - Friend Power". The club is the same as a small house where the members can share common knowledge, experience, and interest. In the club, there are always the enthusiastic teachers and seniors who are willing to support and guide new members throughout the university journey.

Van Lang University Chess Club is actively recruiting new members and players for the School Chess team. Those who have passion and talents can register at the link::…/1FAIpQLScNUi5CFFtKMlRWVF…/viewform
