Selfless, kind, honest and hardworking.
That’s how friends and colleagues are remembering Misha Bazelevskyy, the 22-year-old MacEwan University student who died following the horrific attack in Nice.
Close Friend Simmond Tar describes the young man as someone involved in many aspects of the school community.
But more than that, Tar says he was an exceptional human being.
“He would wait outside the Tim Horton’s parking lot, when he was waiting he had two teas and one was for me, her was generous. There wasn’t a time where we saw each other and he didn’t say hello or ask how I was, he always asked.”

President of the Students Association Danika McConnell says Bazelevskyy was “everywhere” on campus, and exemplified what it meant to be a better student.
“It didn’t matter if you knew him really well, you just seemed to see him everywhere because he was so involved. At least a couple hundred students knew his name and knew him from one of the communities he was engaged with and there were so many of those it was really across the spectrum.”
Bazelevskyy was a Ukrainian citizen, with permanent resident status in Canada.
He travelled to Nice for a three week business program.
