My fellow students are so friendly and the teachers are all very professional. It is a beautiful place here, including people, campus and the city. I am glad that I found it.

To me GITAM is a hub of love and a torch of guidance and knowledge. From its teachers to students and to climate of the place, everything is fascinating.

My peers always make sure to say hi and smile to me when they see me walking around campus, or even roaming around the city. I’ve also had the pleasure of going out with other international students to enjoy the beaches, watch Indian classical and folk dance, and see a flower exhibit from over 90 countries! We don’t see such events in the US and it’s not common for colleges to arrange trips. Being hands-on in my classes has given me a bit more enthusiasm for my education. Every interaction has made me feel welcome.

GITAM is perfect for good academic ambience. Rigorous academic schedules and process makes it good for improving confidence in the subject and thus employability opportunities back-home. The hostel facilities are truly home-away from home. With supportive teachers and friends, I find GITAM to be the best university for any foreign student.

GITAM is a place where I have learned and experienced so many new things in such a short period of time. My classes are great and I enjoy every one of them, especially poetry, because it made me a poet. I also joined the Spanish class. Learning a new language is challenging but it is very rewarding.
