Remembering Suleman Dawood

Remembering Suleman Dawood

We are deeply saddened to hear that the passengers on board the submersible that went missing in the North Atlantic have died and sadly this includes one of our students, Suleman Dawood.

Our thoughts are with everyone involved in, and affected by this tragedy, especially Suleman’s family, loved ones and friends. We respect their privacy and send our thoughts and love to them all during this terrible time.

Suleman was a much loved member of Strath Union and his close friends and Volleyball team mates have described him as passionate about the things he loved, always working hard to improve and someone who never wanted to be the centre of attention.  A member of the volleyball club said We as a club will be more dedicated than ever to keep up to the same standards and hold onto the memory of Suleman to drive us all forward as we know he would’ve liked us to.  He will be deeply missed as a person, friend, player and influence.

Soon we will open a digital book of condolences where students can leave their thoughts, memories and messages for Suleman and his family.

The Student Wellbeing team is on hand to offer any support to students and the wider Strathclyde community at this distressing time. You can contact them by email.

We understand the media is seeking information and we respectfully ask that all press enquiries be directed to the University Corporate Comms.
