2022 graduating class reflects on their Michigan memories
Anindya Das Antar – Master’s (MS/E), Electrical and Computer Engineering
University of Michigan is not a place, it’s the people.
Tsenguun Byambadorj – PhD, Electrical and Computer Engineering
Grateful for every opportunity, memory, and friendship Michigan has provided.
Peilun Cai – Undergraduate, Data Science
Yatharth Chhabra – Undergraduate, Computer Science
Every Thursday at 7:00pm, I get to see a few hundred enthusiastic members at Michigan Hackers. No matter how many extra hours of work I put in as a Vice President for Michigan Hackers, seeing the vast number of students I’m able to impact makes every minute worth it.
Nathaniel Chong – Undergraduate, Computer Science
Enakshi Deb – Undergraduate, Electrical Engineering
I want to thank all my friends and family who have supported me the last four years! I would not be where I am today without them. Go Blue!
Simin Fan – Undergraduate, Computer Science
The sky says GO BLUE!
Yigao Fang – Undergraduate, Computer Science
I would never forget the time I spent at UM, where I had such academic improvement, beautiful snow scenes, and precious memories.
Alexander Gedeon – Master’s, Computer Science and Engineering
I wouldn’t have been nearly as successful as a computer scientist if it wasn’t for the awe-inspiring and kindhearted faculty in SMTD that made me a more avid, creative, and open-minded learner.
Grace Girdler – Undergraduate, Computer Science
Choosing to major in CS was one of the best decisions I made during my time at Michigan. The high level of dedication and mental agility it required resulted in an even greater reward: a degree from Michigan Engineering, an exciting role in Data Engineering at P&G, and a strong group of women I’ve become friends with over the years in EECS.
Yuanqi Guo – Undergraduate, Electrical Engineering
Every day is a blessing day.
Conner Hein – Undergraduate, Computer Science

Kanisius Kusumadjaja – Undergraduate, Computer Engineering
Thank you Mom and Dad. Thank you MER and MRacing for the good times. Thank you to the Indos who’ve been apart of it from the start. Thank you to all who’ve made Michigan home. Go fast and go blue!
Xianglong Li – Undergraduate, Computer Science, Data Science
Favorite memory is to see my teammates in person after meeting with them online for nearly a year.
Ke Liu – Undergraduate, Computer Science
Dream Big, Go Blue!
Weikun Lyu – Undergraduate, Computer Science
Existence Precedes Essence
Joseph Nwabueze – Master’s, Computer Science and Engineering
Thank you Dr. Brehob for mentoring me throughout my college experience.
Rebecca Poirier – Undergraduate, Computer Science
From my very first CS project four years ago to my last this past week, I’ve learned so much more than I could ever imagine. I’m thankful to my teammates, professors, and friends that have helped me along the way. I couldn’t have asked for a better journey. Go blue!
Emily Plumer – Undergraduate, Computer Science
My favorite memory is pulling all nighters to code with my pattern and getting feta bread delivered to the robotics building.
Ashwin Soorya Prakash – Master’s (MS/E), Electrical and Computer Engineering
Michigan is many amazing things to the many amazing people who are a part of this community. For me, it’s more than just a place where I completed my Master’s degree. The two years I’ve spent as a U-M student have been super challenging, and yet, completely rewarding. Challenging, because of the pandemic and well, because academics at U-M is far from being a piece of cake. But despite all of that, it’s been rewarding because of all the things I’ve gained.
At Michigan, I represented my engineering division as a student ambassador, but also got the opportunity to represent my culture and that of my fellow students, by co-leading the International Center Student Council. I honed my social and networking skills by being part of two academic honor societies, but also pursued business and philanthropy by actively fundraising at Michigan Telefund. I worked with a large student project team building a complex Autonomous Aircraft, but also kept my passion for the Arts alive and in fact, even got the chance to share the stage with an 18-time Grammy Award winner by taking part in the Arts Initiative. I’m not so sure I could’ve done any of these things at the same time and have had half the fun that I did in the process, being at any other place. Higher education, to me, is not just about academics, it’s about getting the whole package – not just about training to be an expert in a field, but also about learning to be a well-rounded person. And I believe Michigan helped me do just that. I feel blessed to have studied here and to everybody at U-M who has been a part of this special phase of my life, I’d like to say a heart-felt thank you! Go Blue!
