Location & Hours
Friends of India is actively involved in helping the Office of ISS (International Students and Scholars) in organizing ‘pick-up & temporary accommodation’ arrangements for incoming students in the Fall and Spring semesters. The membership of our organization and the Office of the ISS clearly realize the importance of this service. For an international student the clime and the general setting of a foreign university can be quite a daunting task to handle. As an RSO comprised mostly of International students we can thoroughly understand the position of students who are in the process of joining the university. Hence our Pick Up and Temporary accommodation arrangements start atleast a month and a half before the fall , Summer and spring semesters.
It all begins when prospective students e-mail the ISS office or us. In the latter case the ISS office forwards us their e-mails. We then reply to the e-mails with suggestions on how to reach the university along with the essential documents and related items that they must bring with them. This serves to put their anxieties to rest. Next, we wait for confirmed flight itineraries from the students. Once these have been received we start making arrangements for the ‘pick-up & accommodation’ arrangements for each of them. We then e-mail the students with the details of who shall meet him/her at the airport along with the name and address of their hosts while they look for their own accommodation. On and average we make arrangements for at least 60 students in an academic year. With the majority of this being during the fall semester.
In conclusion we would like to mention the considerable difficulty that could be encountered in performing this service would it not have been for the excellent relations between the Friends of India organizing committee and her membership.
