Sidra Munawar believes that every stage in life provides a valuable lesson

Having gone through the college search process as an international student, once for undergrad and once for graduate studies, Sidra knows that searching for the right college can be tough. But she offers prospective students some advice: “It’s always best to look for a college that will give you the ‘whole experience.’ It's just not about great academics, but activities and campus life, too. Experiencing a culturally diverse college is always a plus. You have no idea what different people and different cultures can teach you!”

During her time on campus, Sidra was a student worker in the Undergraduate Admission office. “CUC has been a great experience,” she says. “I love how the Concordia-Chicago community is always so helpful and empathetic toward others. I have always seen people going above and beyond to assist others in any way they can.”

As she moves on to her next chapter, Sidra reflects, “I believe every stage teaches you something, and circumstances keep on repeating themselves until the lesson is learned. No matter what and how much you plan, life eventually takes its own course and the most wonderful things happen unexpectedly.”
