Spotlight on Students

Mohammad Alzahrani

Mohammad Alzahrani

Mohammad Alzahrani is a full-time student here at Emporia State University in the School of Library and Information Management. He obtained his Bachelor’s in Library and Information Science in his home country of Saudi Arabia. Mohammad was chosen to attend ESU to attain his Master’s in Library and Information Science specifically to return to the academic library where he worked previously and begin training other employees. He will be teaching others what he has learned here in the SLIM program. Mohammed says he prefers the weekend classes because he enjoys being ‘face to face’ with the instructor and other students. Mohammed plans to graduate Spring 2018.
