Luan Nguyen, Success Writ Large

Luan Nguyen came to GVSU to study hard, but he could not foresee that his efforts would be displayed in a very large format over Highway 131.  This recent alumnus, about to start his graduate studies at Nortre Dame, is featured on a GVSU billboard advertising our strength in student research. ( Look for "Real World Research" as you travel southbound 131 just south of the Wealthy Street interchange).

With his research mentor Professor George McBane, Luan had the opportunity to do cutting edge Physical Chemistry research and present at conferences.  He was also selected as an Ott Scholar by the Chemistry Department. Professor Laurie Witucki also mentored Luan over the last two years through the S-STEM program.

Luan is proud of his alma mater.  He says, "One’s potential will be hidden without exposure to the right opportunity. Grand Valley State University had provided me with many great opportunities so that I know what I am capable of doing and will be able to do what I wish. Go Lakers !!! "
