My visit to India, particularly having participated in IITM as an international student has left me very nice impressions. I met many new friends and made close networking both with Indian students and other students from various countries. I felt so special, as I was the only student from Indonesia. In addition, student life on campus was supportive for student activities. Not only were the facilities all there, but also the International Student Affairs team was friendly and helpful. I learnt a lot during my project work and my supervisor from the Humanities Department made sure I got the at most knowledge from the project work. If I could wrap all my feelings and good impressions about my stay at IITM, I would say that I am really grateful. The experiences and stories have become part of my life that will always be with me wherever I go and I will always be excited to share with anyone. It may also be one of the best memories I have had in my life.
