Hello, my name is Vu Nguyen and I’m a second-year student at UMBC studying Computer science. I enjoyed outdoor activities, especially hiking, camping and biking. I’m also a big fan of exploring and trying new things here on UMBC campus, so if any events or programs are happening on campus, I will definitely be there. Besides UMBC, I love spending time with my family and traveling to different places. I can’t wait to see everyone here on campus and look forward to assisting you all.
