INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS CELEBRATE FOURTH OF JULY

For many students, the Fourth of July is a holiday they have celebrated for years,
but for international students, such as Zadran, the experience is still fairly new.
When Zuleikha Zadran came to the U.S. at the age of 13, it was the war in
Afghanistan that pushed her family to leave. But now, as an American citizen and recent Michigan
State University graduate, she feels love for both countries.

UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA PROVIDES AID TO REFUGEES

Largely impacted by its vibrant international community, the University of
Virginia (UVA) has taken many steps to continue its good work in the
world. Charlottesville is home to the International Rescue Committee, a
non-profit organization that provides aid to refugees who have recently
fled warzones, famine, or political strife to start new lives in the United States.
UVA students are both eager to educate themselves about current humanitarian crises as well as
extend a helping hand. As a result, Madison House, UVA’s student volunteer “hub,” now runs a
unique, year-long program called “Bridging the Gap.” Students apply to be both a friend and mentor
to child refugees from countries such as Sierra Leone, Iraq, and Togo. They help with homework,
kick soccer balls around, and visit museums on weekends.

ENGINEERING CLUB COMPLETES BEST-EVER BAJA FINISH

Measured by odometer, the NMC Engineering Club’s road to the annual
SAE Baja endurance race and its best finish ever clocked in at just under 1,000 miles.
But measured by other yardsticks – including the personal growth and maturity of the students, the
slope of their learning curve and the collaboration of NMC faculty – the April trip to Auburn University
was an odyssey.
Sponsored by the Society of Automotive Engineers, the Baja race has been a tradition of the
Engineering Club and adviser Jim Coughlin for several years. Teams design, build and race cars
over a tough dirt course.
“You start with nothing,” said club member Doug Grunder.
In years past, the team spent more time building the car than designing it. This year, design got
equal attention. The team felt they had built their best car ever.
