USF Grad Still Recovering From Afghanistan University Terror Attack
Kabul Professor

For the last four years, USF PhD graduate Raj Chandarlapaty has been teaching English to students at the American University of Afghanistan in Kabul. That was until this past August, when terrorists attacked the school, killing 15 people. Chandarlapaty hid in a locked room with 30 students for 10 hours, convinced they were going to die. You’ll hear his story only on University Beat on WUSF Public Media.
