STEVEN SAKAYROUN

Major:
Mathematical Sciences, Computer Science and French

Hometown:
Bangui, Central African Republic

Why Westminster?
Because Westminster's small campus size allows for a great interaction among students which ultimately leads to better and more meaningful student - student and teacher - student long term relationships.

Favorite foods?
Central African, West African, and Chinese food

Favorite place on campus and why?
Piano room, because it is a good refuge if one is trying to run away from homework.

An interesting fact about you:
I published a novel in french entitled "Assassin" when I was 18.  If one woudl liek to give it a look, one should type the following ISBN on google. (ISBN: 9782332462213)

Advice to an incoming student:
The best learning at Westminster is the one you get outside of the classroom.  I usually say that "regardless of where one schools, one does not become an expert in his/her field of study in the classroom but ouside of it".  The small size of Westminster makes it easy for students to get quality help outside of the classrooms from both teachers and selected tutors.

Clubs and Organizations:
Break Dance Club-President, CIVICUS-Officer, International Club-Officer, African Union member



TARASAI HAMADZIRIPI

Major:

Business Administration

Hometown:
Harare, Zimbabwe

Why Westminster?
Because it is a small community with great people and academics.

Favorite foods?
Rice, eggs, chicken, mashed potatoes, sadza (Zimbabwe cornmeal porridge), and potato-egg salad.

Favorite place on campus and why?
Hunter Activity Center, which is JCI, a place you can study, have a meal, socialize, watch tv, check mail, and play games all at once.  I love JCI because I can relax my mind well after a busy day and I can also do many things in one place.

An interesting fact about you:
I am a good listener, but too emotional.

Advice to an incoming student: 
Just be yourself, not what you wish to be and you will fit right in.  Always avoid procrastination, or rather use that time to be involved on campus, because there is so much to do.
 
Clubs and Organizations:
