Dr. Abdollah Homaifar was selected to lead a session during N.C A&T’s New Student Orientation held on June 15, 2018. Dr. Homaifar ensured that the New Student Orientation goal to make “students feel right at home from the moment they step on campus,” would be achieved. Through his charismatic speech and presentation of a drone from his research laboratory, Dr. Homaifar promoted the significance of the TECHLAV center, being involved in STEM, aspects of engineering, and autonomy. He made sure to talk and connect to each new student as he does with the students that work within his institute daily. Dr. Homaifar’s session proved to be a major success through the questions posed by the incoming students.
