Mourning the Loss of Ghanimat Azhdari and Milad Ghasemi

The Graduate Student Association mourns the loss of our fellow friends and colleagues, Ghanimat Azhdari and Milad Ghasemi, who were among the passengers on flight PS752 which crashed near Tehran last night.  

Ghanimat Azhdari was a PhD student in the Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics, and Milad Ghasemi Ariani was a PhD student in the Department of Marketing and Consumer Studies.

Today, we are deeply saddened by this tragic loss. The memories of Ghanimat and Milad will forever remain a part of our graduate student body at the University of Guelph.
