Liana Van

Major: Finance
Class Standing: Senior
Ethnicity: Asian

Hey guys! My name is Liana Van and I am a senior majoring in Finance. I am from Southbury, CT, and I am so glad I came to Penn State. This school is definitely my home away from home, and I can’t wait for you to become part of our family as well.

Apart from being an AASIA mentor, I am treasurer of the Rotaract club and Power of Pink. I am also the Chair Director for Blue & White Society’s Relay for Life. I am also a part of a business honor society, Beta Gamma Sigma. I love volunteering, keeping busy, and making a difference in the world.

I would like to think of myself as a well-rounded person because I love taking hikes and appreciating the nature around us, but I also love being in the city (this is probably because I grew up in-between NYC and Boston). On top of that, I absolutely love being by the water, whether it is on a boat on the lake or on the beach, but I also don’t mind being by a farm and appreciating the animals around me. I couldn't just pick one lifestyle, which is why I like to think of myself as a very diverse person that can get along with absolutely anybody!

Therefore, if you need help getting involved, assistance on managing your time, or even if you need someone to talk to, just reach out to me! I can’t wait to meet you, and welcome to Penn State!
