Hello New Concordians! My name is Mohammad and this is my second year at Concordia as a grad student majoring in MASc in Civil Engineering. Right now my courses are finished (so happy about it!) and I am working on my thesis. I am an international student from Iran, so I am quite familiar with the ups and downs of adapting to a new city which seems like a whole new world at first!
I love movies and have probably watched all the movies on any "Greatest Movies of All Times" list. Still, I welcome any suggestion for new ones! I also enjoy hiking and have tried many hiking trails around Montreal. I am a programming geek and am always trying to bring programming applications into my work.
The one thing I wished I would have known back in my first semester is… that no matter how aware you think you are about what is happening at Concordia, there are always new things to discover.
A tip I have for new students is… I suggest that you keep track of all the events and student services and attend as many events as you can!
My favourite part of being a Concordia student is… that I get a chance to pursue my interests and even develop new ones and I always found a way at Concordia to work on my new passions.
