Transcript APR20 10 The Graduate Indian Students Organization strives to be an active member of the campus community, hosting and participating in events all year long. | GISO photos and Museum District. Out of courtesy, the organization provides free airport pickup as well as temporary living accommodations to new students from India. On average, 150 Indian students are picked up from the airport each fall semester and live with seniors until they find their own arrangements. In addition to helping new Indian students, GISO is vividly active around campus. GISO hosts bake sales with traditional Indian pastries, a cricket tournament, and a large annual event called 'Maitri' which presents Indian music, dance, and costumes to other UH students. GISO is closely affiliated with the International Students and Scholars Services Office at UH. "I feel proud to be a small part of the big picture at UH.... I am a well- rounded Cougar and very proud to be one." - Tejas Chitnis, vice president for public relations, Graduate Indian Students Organization In all their 11 years of being involved with Indians, GISO is proud to say that they have never missed an airport pickup. The organization was honored last year with a plaque for their work with Indian students. "For me, GISO has been an integral part of my life in Houston and at UH. As the Vice President, Public Relations, I have enjoyed my interaction with other organizations on and off campus, and feel proud to be a small part of the big picture at UH," Chitnis said. Tejas Chitnis arrived in Houston after completing his bachelor's degree in electronics and telecommunications engineering in India.

"I had the opportunity to meet Dr. Ogmen (previous head of the Electrical Engineering Department at the Cuiien College of Engineering) while he was visiting Pune, India on some official work," Chitnis said on why he decided to attend UH. "I was impressed by the interaction with him, and was excited to experience the quality of education at UH. Now that I have graduated, I am extremely satisfied with my decision to join UH. I feel as if I was able to get all that I expected out of these 2 years of education, including the experiences outside of my classes. I am a well rounded Cougar and very proud to be one." Chitnis particularly finds the education at UH to be rewarding and comforting, with its large diversity. "While working towards my degree at UH, I have been able to learn as much outside of my classes as much as I learnt in them. The whole atmosphere here, with the diverse group of students studying with me has given me a truly international experience. I feel like a world citizen, someone who can go to any corner of the world and feel at home. This is a very important, especially in this globalized world, where you may find yourself having breakfast in Japan, lunch in India, supper in France and a late night party in USA." As any international student in a new place experiences, barriers build up while adjusting to a new life.
