How is your Fall semester going?
Gulati: My fall semester is going well. I have been getting involved in different things around Grounds and feel that I have met some great people this semester! My co-director Lexie and I have formed a very strong partnership over summer and am looking forward to continuing to work with her and all the new members in International Student Affairs. I feel as though I have found a place here in the UVa community in the last year.
What would be your advice to other international students at UVA?
Gulati: In my first semester last year, I would get homesick quite often and it was very difficult to adjust. However, once I started getting more involved in organization on Grounds, I found myself interacting with amazing communities that made me feel more at home. My advice to international students is take as many opportunities as you can get because at the end of the day we all came to Charlottesville from another country to be immersed in a completely new culture and it’s important that we get the best experience that we can!
