Student Spotlight: Andrew Goodman-Bacon

There will be two openings in The Solonators, a band comprised largely of U-M grad students and faculty, when Andrew Goodman-Bacon and his wife, Ph.D. candidate in Public Health, Sayeh Nikpay, move to Berkeley soon for postdoctoral fellowships. “The band has been really great. I sing and play guitar. My wife started as an accordion player but took up the bass after running out of songs with accordion parts. We mostly play in basements, but we’ve played a few weddings and at the Wolverine Brewing Company.”

Student to Student Discussion for New International Students

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to participate in an online discussion with current international students and a representative from the U-M International Center to discuss information and resources for new international students. The panel was facilitated by my colleague Paula Wishart (thanks, Paula!). We covered a lot of information in the hour and a half discussion. Summarized below are some of the topics we talked about, along with some links to resources that may be helpful to you. I’d like to say “thank you” to the following students and staff for sharing their experiences and getting my week started off on a very positive note!
