ENGAGEMENT WITH A PASSION
Fahad Ashraf knows well the benefits of involvement and leadership. As a double major, double minor, student government president, and Orientation Assistant, Fahad is making the most of the immense opportunities that await all students on Scranton's campus.
On getting involved
"There are so many ways to get involved on campus — from clubs and organizations to intramural sports to all kinds of student activities. Being a part of such an active campus gives you every opportunity to become the best version of yourself, meeting new people, developing new skills and becoming a more well-rounded person."
On nervous beginnings
"Entering Orientation before my first year, I was nervous, not knowing how I would fit in at Scranton. However, the Orientation leaders made me feel immediately at home. I was so inspired by the experience, I later applied and ultimately joined the team as an Orientation Assistant."
On pursuing leadership
"Becoming a leader on campus has really helped me to grow. I had to put myself out there, not always feeling comfortable, but through these experiences — Orientation team, Student Government, student organizations and more — I've grown into a confident person who's unafraid to step out and do things. I'll no doubt benefit from these experiences long after I leave Scranton."
