My name is Sanjay - an International student trying to stand out while fitting in! Tired of climbing the corporate ladder for the past couple of years, moved to Mtl to relive my student days, and explore what the city has to offer. I love: Animals, Food, Cafes, Motorcycles, and Nature 

The one thing I wished I would have known back in my first semester is… the importance of time management. It can be as fancy as a personal dashboard and tracker through Notion or as simple as a tiny pocket notebook and a pen. But do it. There will be a lot of things going on and you will want to do everything.

A tip I have for new students is… keep yourself active and do not skip meals! Studies matter, but your health matters more. Also, engage in activities across campus; it's all about finding the balance.

My favorite part of being a Concordia student is… The community is very inviting and you'll definitely find your circle. Never miss out on any chance you get to socialize, meet new people, or just hang out with yourself
