In his second year, Aly was a residence Don for upper-year students. He spearheaded a number of significant improvements from gathering suggestions from students across campus.

Aly was a teaching assistant for two courses, Management in a Changing Environment and Operations Management. He held part-time positions as a Microsoft Campus Leader, Awards Agent for CampusPerks, and as a Bloomberg Ambassador to help secure students internships and full-time jobs.

Review by: Aliya Ghose on Sep. 22, 2013 :
This was such an informative & thorough guide. I really wish I had this guide when I was in first year! It covers a number of things, such as food habits, which I would not have thought of as having an impact on my studies, when I was in first year. As well as adding a personal touch, the sharing of personal experiences is very helpful because I think most people are more willing to heed advice when they realize it is experience based. Finally, as it was written by a recent graduate it provides a student perspective, something unique, which you would not get from a guide written by an educator or someone who has not been in university for many years.

Review by: Amy Mullin on Sep. 19, 2013 : (no rating)
This short book is full of sensible advice for students beginning university. Students who read it will have a great chance to learn from the author's accumulated wisdom not only with respect to study habits but also on important topics such as study-life balance, getting involved in campus life, and exploration of careers.

Review by: Michelle M on Sep. 08, 2013 :
Aly has done a great job of expressing the university experience based on what he learned during his university experience and it really does convey the things I wish I had known during my time at university. Everyone has that experience of hindsight after university. This guide is essentially depicting that "hindsight" enabling you to make the most out of your post-secondary experience.
