 Pictures: Indian Students at San Josť State University

Featured ISO: The ISO (Indian Students Organization) at San Jose State University was founded with the primary aim of fostering togetherness among Indian students and to help aspiring students. It serve the interests of the Indian community on campus and works towards helping it to gel into the greater culture of university life in San Jose.


Living in the United States for an extended period of time while pursuing once educational goals makes a lot of difference than visiting as a tourist. One has to consider life in a new environment and a new culture and how it changes once perspective. Loneliness and isolation is a reality for many new Indian students, till they build a supportive community of friends around them.

Indian graduate students feel a sense of freedom  and more self-dependent after leaving India,  but at the same time they face the burden of living life in a new country, no close one to depend on for emotional support. This is where the Indian Student Associations (ISAs) play a pivotal rle in helping students share their views and experiences with one another and help them through the toughest times. Students particularly the once who are vegetarians also find it difficult ordering food outside as they don't get much choice. Students are also contributing to the growing Indian-American ready to eat  food market where desi brands like of  Amul, MRT, Everest and Haldiram  have taken off.

Most ISAs provide instructions on their websites giving detailed checklist on various issues which are very handy for students. Some ISAs also arrange for airport pick-ups, few weeks of temporary accommodation for new students. This is especially helpful for new students, for whom settling in is a dreaded chore 

Indian students and ISAs also get involved in culture shows like Diwali and other events like Screening of Cricket Matches, Republic Day celebrations, Dance & Creativity Competitions, Social get-together which makes them feel more connected to India while being in US and pursuing their education and achieving their goal.
 
The various ISAs and graduate education in the Universities in America provide many Indian students an educational experience that they remember throughout their lives.
