Luiny Duran, Class of '13

Bachelor of Science in Aircraft (Flight) Operations
Queens, New York

"Vaughn College is located in the greatest city in the world!" Luiny Duran chose Vaughn College because of its outstanding reputation for aviation programs-and because it is "located in the greatest city in the world!" Since becoming a student here, the Queens resident has learned to value much more.

Now, Luiny recognizes Vaughn's solid immersion in the aviation industry: the college's investment in state-of-the-art flight simulators, and in recruiting professors who provide invaluable insight because they have worked-or are still working-in the aviation industry.

"Vaughn has such a hardworking faculty and staff," he says. "The campus is small and intimate. You get to know everyone. I love that Vaughn is diverse so I can interact with people from a variety of backgrounds."

He plans to be a pilot and "travel the world" (but is sure to return frequently to his New York roots).
