Double and triple threats: When an extra degree pays off

Thu, 2014-09-25 12:12

Sam Sadeghi’s career seems to be on a trajectory that only goes up.

He continued to work full-time while pursuing a master’s in power electronics, which he earned from Ryerson in 2008. The only time he didn’t work was when he took a four-month leave in 2009 to take core courses for his master’s in business administration at Wilfrid Laurier University.

Mon, 2014-09-22 14:38

Mid-September: the time when universities and communities across Canada and the United States lick their wounds after yet another terrible Frosh (Freshman Orientation) season. Inappropriate behaviour, drunkenness, unruly young men and women terrorizing their neighbours, hospitalization, assaults — the tally is not for the faint of heart. We sometimes think of Frosh as we do of winter in Canada: one can only endure it.
