Interior Valedictorian of Course 23: "Only at Van Lang University that I could become "completed"

(VLU, 26/12/2021) - After four years studying at Van Lang, each bachelor has his/her memories with the university. Van Lang may not be your first choice, but now it will be the home that you are longing to return. This statement also applies to Bui Thi Phuong Tran – Interior Design Valedictorian of Course 23, as she shared her touching emotions when being about to graduate from her dear Van Lang University.

I am Bui Thi Phuong Tran – a fresh graduate from the Interior Design program of course 23 under the Faculty of Fine Arts and Design at Van Lang University. Today, I am very excited and honored to share my thoughts and emotions on behalf of more than 200 graduates of the Interior Design program at this significant Commencement Day.

Today is indeed an important day, not just for me but also for all new graduates. In particular, amidst the escalating situation of the pandemic, I am incredibly grateful to the university for organizing the Commencement Day, enabling us to share the joy with our family and friends and marking a memorable event in our life.

Perhaps like me, for many students, Van Lang University may not be the first and only choice, but now I can confidently affirm that: choosing Van Lang is one of my best choices.

My four years studying at Van Lang University may not be not too long, but it is a journey of satisfaction. At Van Lang University, I pursued my favorite major with friends helping me be myself; I tried things that I had never experienced before and learned many things that can only be achieved wholly at Van Lang University.

Dear our prestigious lecturers!
In the joy of this Commencement Day, on behalf of all the students, I would like to express our most profound appreciation to VLU Administrators, lecturers, and staff. What we have got today is thanks to your orientation, guidance, and encouragement.

Dear our honorable parents!
What we achieve here is significantly thanked your efforts. For us, you and our whole family will always be a reliable source of encouragement, priceless comfort, and belief to help us stay strong on the path we have chosen. For all the hard work you have done, please accept our sincerest thanks and recognition from the bottom of our hearts.
