ELI and UA Student-Athletes

ELI Student Loeiza on UA's Wheelchair Basketball Team

During the Fall 2021 semester, the English Language Institute (ELI) had five UA student-athletes join its classes:

  • Bernardo Bondra De Almeida from Brazil on the UA Swimming and Diving Team
  • Mohamed Ahmed Farouk from Egypt on the UA Swimming and Diving Team
  • Loeiza Le Roux from France on the UA Wheelchair Basketball Team
  • Filip Planinsek from Slovenia on the UA Tennis Team
  • German Samfalov from Ukraine on the UA Tennis Team
    To support UA’s student-athletes beyond the classroom, the ELI scheduled an activity to root for Loeiza and the other women on UA’s Wheelchair Basketball Team. Around 30 ELI students and faculty members attended and cheered the team on to a win.

    The ELI is proud to support UA’s student-athletes.
