Meet Arjit

“Auburn Global has been helpful in so many ways. They register students for their major classes but also register students for Auburn Global classes, which helped me a lot with transitioning to higher-level classes and the American higher education system in general. Additionally, Auburn Global has weekly student events which included things like a Halloween party and tailgating before football games. During these events I met a lot of new friends that I may not have met otherwise.”

Adventures with Arjit and Jacob

Arjit and Jacob met during their freshman year through Auburn Global and became fast friends. Jacob was a Global Guide (student orientation leader) from Birmingham and Arjit was an incoming freshman coming from India. After orientation ended they played soccer together and hung out with friends often, developing a friendship that crossed oceans. Arjit and Jacob’s first adventure was a road trip to Miami, Florida with a group of friends.

Their biggest and most recent adventure was a trip to India to over winter break during which they travelled throughout India and attended Arjit’s sister’s wedding.

During their trip, Arjit and Jacob stayed mostly in New Delhi as that was where they attended the wedding. Jacob participated in wedding activities including joining in with the rest of the wedding gusts in traditional dances.

Throughout the rest of their visit they travelled through Punjab, visited another Auburn Global classmate who was home in India during the break, and spent some time in a town on the edge of Tibet and the foothills of the Himalayas.
