Saadat Badruddin was born and raised in Syracuse, NY, a well known basketball town not far from Ithaca. Though Saadat is a diehard ‘Cuse fan, he bleeds Big Red at every hockey game! A senior in the College of Agriculture and Life Science, Saadat is majoring in Biology & Society, with a minor in Nutrition. On campus, Saadat is a brother of Cornell’s service fraternity, APO, and rides with the Cornell Cycling Club. Saadat also conducts research with Dr. Qi Wang’s Social Cognition Lab. Back home in Syracuse, Saadat works closely with the North Side Learning Center, a literacy initiative that focuses on Syracuse’s dense refugee population. When Saadat isn’t spending his free time napping, he likes to mess around with his Ukulele, binge-watch TV, or just hang out with other Keeton residents. Saadat’s door is always open, so stop by to say hello and get to know your SA!
