As scientific thought began to work its way to the forefront, those ideas were treated like wives’ tales or folklore. So, in today's world we can rely on science to point the way towards foods that contribute to optimal cognitive function and we n...

Blind Test Shows AI-Enhanced MRI Scans
Blind Test Shows AI-Enhanced MRI Scans
If you have ever had an MRI scan before, you’ll know how unsettling the experience can be. You’re placed in a claustrophobia-inducing tube and asked to stay completely still for up to an hour while unseen hardware whirs, creaks, and thumps around you like a medical poltergeist. New research, though, suggests AI can help with this predicament by making MRI scans four times faster, getting patients in and out of the tube quicker.

Employee Spotlight

Eliza Nalbandian

2019’s first Employee Spotlight features Eliza Nalbandian. Eliza is the College’s Senior Student Accounts Bookkeeper and has been part of the Casa Loma family for 20 years! When asked what she likes best about her position, she replied, “Being helpful and giving advice, encouraging and assisting students with any questions, and not necessarily only their student accounts. If I can make a difference in someone’s life – that gives me the greatest pleasure”.

And Eliza does just that – her office is warm and inviting and she always has some sort of sweets to share with the students – who doesn’t like sweets! And speaking of sweets, did you know that the one thing in this world Eliza cannot resist – pastries! And to pair that with a Frappuccino – is the ultimate decadence for Eliza.

Gary, Eliza’s husband and Michael, her son, keep her busy on her off hours, when she is not watching her favorite Hallmark Channel, shopping or decorating. She loves traveling to San Francisco – and enjoys the sites, smells and tastes of the city.

Eliza is a very positive person, and no matter how tough the going gets – she believes things will always get resolved. And she demonstrates this to students daily by always trying to find new and innovative ways to help students pay their accounts.

Her advice to students, “You have to do love what you do and to get there you will have ups and downs. Don’t give up. Treat your monthly tuition payments just like your rent, mortgage, or credit card payments – and ask for help when you need it”

Eliza is dedicated to her work and her students – she likes new challenges – she is a problem solver – and she is a person you can always count on. Casa Loma College is lucky to have her!
