- "It was a tough time. I almost lost hope of pursuing my higher education abroad but Geetha was always there to help me when I needed. She helped me defer my admission to the spring semester. She prepared me more for the visa interview by setting up several mock interviews. With Geetha’s help, I was finally able to get my visa. I arrived in the U.S. in time for orientation. To my surprise, I found Jill there. And to my even bigger surprise, I was welcomed with a big, warm hug from Jill. She remembered me, by name, even after four months had passed since our brief meeting in India. To someone who had come thousands of miles away from home, away from family and friends, that hug meant a lot. It felt like being welcomed to a second home. It was at that moment I knew I had made the right choice of selecting UMBC."
