He has received an excellent introduction to the University of Windsor and the surrounding community, says Mehrdad Saif. He took up the position of dean of engineering on July 1.
“My whole family feels Windsor people are very friendly,” says the father of two sons, 20 and 18 years old. “Coming from Vancouver, where we got a lot of rain, we feel like we’re in the tropics.”
Dr. Saif was one of the new faculty and staff members introduced to campus Wednesday at the annual President’s Garden Party.
Caterer Dean Kissner also had reason to be pleased with Windsor’s climate.
“The party went extremely well, thanks to the rain holding off,” he said afterward. “It made for a nice gathering to welcome our new employees.”
