By being a part of A&S Ambassadors, Assani wants to work with his team of executives to build UC’s physics department and help recruit more incoming students into these programs. Assani’s passion for physics drove him to re-establish the Society of Physics Students club on campus to provide an opportunity for students to build a community within the physics department.
“When I was a freshman, this club gave me the opportunity to meet so many upperclassmen and gave me confidence in my capability to succeed in physics,” Assani said.
With the remainder of his time here at UC, Assani loves helping students on their academic journey. Assani also serves as a peer leader at the Learning Assistance Center, a supplemental instructor, a recitation teaching assistant and he has been a peer tutor for every single physics and mathematics course offered by the Learning Assistance Center.
Assani’s mission is to teach his students a wide variety of skills including intellectual and stress management, university engagement, integrative learning and professional and civic responsibility.
“Physics is notorious for its drop-out rate and I hope that as a peer leader I can encourage students to believe in their capability to be successful physics students,” he said. “By doing this, we can build a stronger department and community and better ourselves as individuals.”
