In honor of two-time Lyles School of Civil Engineering graduate Shiva Haghighi, who passed away in 2014 at age 28, three rooms in Hampton Hall were recently renovated and dedicated as the Shiva Haghighi Student Success Center. Haghighi received her undergraduate degree in 2008 and her master’s in 2011.
Haghighi was an enthusiastic student leader during her time on campus. She acted as a CE Ambassador and served as president of CE’s Student Advisory Council as an undergraduate, then participated in the CE Graduate Student Advisory Council as a graduate student.
Haghighi always envisioned an improved, dedicated space in Hampton Hall where students could meet, study and work. Haghighi’s mother, Atossa Rahmanifar, funded the effort to honor her daughter’s vision.
