Junayed's Suffolk StoryDuring my time at Suffolk, I have been exposed to a lot of new experiences. I was able to make friends from all around the world and be actively involved on campus through various clubs and organizations. I built myself up through these experiences.
I will never forget the first time I arrived on campus—coming from Bangladesh, never having lived on my own, and trying to pursue my education in a foreign land and in a foreign language. It was nerve-racking and the culture shock was obviously there, but the Suffolk community made it feel like home. I remember when the ‘Muslim Ban’ was announced, the amount of support I received from my friends, professors, and the university leadership was heartwarming. It gave me the confidence to continue, knowing my university would defend me if needed. Now that’s not something you will see often.
Suffolk will always be a place I call home. I want to take this opportunity to thank my peers, my professors, my supervisors, the deans, and the president for making this journey so memorable and precious. Once a Ram, always a Ram!
