Mohammad Hamo is a Senior at USA and is the recipient of a Freshman Admission Scholarship, USA Freshman Leadership Scholarship, and a recipient of the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship through the Honors College. When asked why he loves the University of South Alabama, Mohammad said: "I think South provides students with different opportunities to build and explore their creativity and ideas. Through organizations and activities, I found some of the most meaningful people and experiences. The University gave me a chance to get involved in fundraising, philanthropies, and service events that have impacted my personal life and career goals."
