Our graduates of this Fall are (from left to right): Do Tien Phat (Ph.D in Plant Sciences), Nguyen Ha Dieu Trang (Ph.D in Food Science), Nguyen T. Nhat Quang (Ph.D in Electrical Engineering), Nguyen The Cuong (Ph.D in Plant Sciences)

On the graduation occasion, Nguyen The Cuong expressed his feelings: “My time in Mizzou has been my fondest memories and greatest experiences so far. I have also met so many wonderful people that I know I will have good connections with them for a very long time. People at Columbia have also treated me and my family members felt like we are living in a second home.”

Nguyen The Cuong and Do Tien Phat shared poems composed about Columbia and Mizzou!

  • Columbia

Columbia the city we know always

Open to welcome you all to

Learn good things to help people

Upon a long voyage you go

Make our earth peace and beauty

Be the place for next generations

In the heart we always have

A city of friendliness and love/hospitality.

(by Nguyen The Cuong)

  • Let’s Go Tigers!

A wonderful time seems to fly

Don’t like winter but like sunshine

Thanks for the help and the advice!

Let’s Go Tigers! You are my life!

(by Do Tien Phat)
