For me, Lamar University has been the land of opportunity. I immediately found my niche and became active in organizations. As soon as I started my my semester, every opportunity I wanted was available to me. I chose to study environmental science because I want to help solve the problem of water sources in place like Vietnam.

Lamar University Cardinals Learn to Solve Problems

"I had a first-hand experience of the side effects from the lack of sanitation when I was in fourth grade in Vietnam. From then on, I knew I had to enact change one way or another. Environmental Sciences is not just something I study. It’s something that really gets me excited.

Lamar University is the land of opportunity because I found my niche here and became active with many organizations that aligned with my passion. I’m encouraged to take on more research opportunities and become involved on campus. I never thought I would find a place like LU that I could fit in so well. The diversity of thought and culture drives me to succeed.

I’m not just another number here, I’m helping to solve problems that need solutions. I am Tran Nguyen and I am just one of Lamar University’s stories. WeAreLU." –Tran Nguyen
