Alum David Amarasinghe shares fond memories of life as a Mason student in our latest Alumni Profile.
Mason Degree: BS, Mathematics 2008
Occupation: Kaplan MCAT instructor
I chose Mason for my Bachelor’s because…two of my older sisters graduated from Mason with majors in Foreign Language. I also loved visiting the area growing up and was really impressed by what had changed when I came to visit for orientation.
My favorite Mason memory is…dorm life. Most of us still stay in touch. The community we made in our dorms is a huge part of my interest in becoming a member of the COS alumni chapter.
Professionally, I’m most proud of…my students’ success and the historical and anecdotal connections I have drawn across the sciences for my students. Their expressions of comprehension (and sometimes wonder) are incredibly satisfying.
I advise current students to…maintain contact with classmates, stay involved in college-related groups like the COS alumni chapter, and join online groups on Facebook or LinkedIn. Participate instead of being a wallflower. It can be very difficult to rebuild those connections if you lose contact.
