My name is Pranathi Shankar and I am from Bangalore, India. I first came to the U.S. during my junior high school year, where I attended a high school in Franklin, Tennessee, for two years. When it was time for me to apply to college, I chose MTSU because it had an excellent psychology program and during my college visit here, I was really impressed by the campus environment. They also had a Scholar Academy Program, which was held two weeks before the start of classes, and joining that program was just one of many wonderful memories I have of my experience here.

People here, whether professors, advisors, or any other faculty, try to do their best to help you with a problem, and not just wait for you to deal with it. Even when they do not know the answers, they provide you with resources on who can best help you. They offer so many opportunities for us here to improve academically and socially and have a good college experience, not just making sure people graduate. One such example that really stands out to me during my first semester before classes, the International Office, provided me with an on-campus contact who was from India so that I could have at least one friendly face when I was on campus and not be i overloaded with new experiences I would go through.

Even though I had been here for two years, starting as an international student was stressful for me because I had no idea what to expect. Either way, my first semester here was so stress free it gave me the confidence to handle what was in front of me. Abundant resources on campus to help us was one of the key things that gave me that confidence. Sources like University of Writing Center are so helpful especially for someone who did not learn American English growing up.

There are nearly 300 student organizations here that help a lot to meet new people and pursue your interests and hobbies. Those organizations hold year-round activities that give you a much needed break from academic stress. I myself am part of the Indian Cultural Exchange, the Academy of Scholars and the School Psychology Organization.

I am very happy that I chose this college because I think I would have missed meeting some great people if I had not loved it. I still have three more semesters to graduate and I can’t wait to see what great memories they hold for me.
