US student's life at a glance!
Tips: Students do feel the transition after coming here. There's totally different environment here in the US, students will undergo a cultural shift but here in California, it's good. Plenty of food options from India be it north Indian or south Indian you'll find a variety but It'll be a bit expensive so students mostly prefer to cook on their own. Before coming here at least learn the basics of cooking which will deal with your survival here. The course is good and detailed but don't expect that the university will do everything for you! You'll have to keep on constantly brushing up your skills while studying at the university. You'll find part time jobs here as well and will make ends meet. There is career advising centre but don't rely on it completely as it'll be the guiding light but you'll need to prove yourself at every step.

Decent college for people who radiate skills.
Tips: The university ranking doesn't matter. Your skills do and it's the same case everywhere you go. Competition has leveled up. Almost everyone is doing masters for easy money. College can only help you get some theoretical knowledge but in the end, practical knowledge is used in any company you need to earn it yourself.
Likes (Indian Food): I am from India, and here in California bay area we have plenty of options for Indian cuisine, everything, and anything. We get all kind of food from tandoori to chai, naan and malai kofta around places like fremont or milpitas or San Francisco. It's expensive though but once in a while is okay
Dislikes (Post study jobs): There are plenty of options available to hunt for post study jobs but only if the student is very hardworking or smart working or knows how to get his way out of difficult situations alone. Everyone nowadays has kind of similar resume. So what makes you unique, that's all that matters.

A huge campus with every basic facility.
Tips: The university is stress free. It is decent for students opting in for scholarships, because I have seen students in undergraduate programmes studying here for free from India. Apply living on campus, it is a bit expensive but everything is included so it hardly makes any difference. You will make new friends from different countries around the World.
Likes (Value for money): Most affordable University in California. They also provide scholarships, so apply beforehand. Living on campus is a little bit expensive. Gas and groceries are expensive too. On the other hand, everything is included in tuition fees, i.e. gym, wellness center, library and high speed Wi-Fi.
Dislikes (Indian Food): There is no Indian grocery store near by. You have to take two buses and Bart. Food delivery is very expensive and taste of Indian food is not up to the mark. If you are living off campus in the city, then you will find more Indian options, although it is far from the University.

My home away from home.
Tips: Being an Indian, you're going to experience a couple of culture shocks but you'll adjust eventually. The college is better than most colleges there and there's also a diverse population. The college can be confusing and feel odd at first especially compared to our Indian colleges.
Likes (Student Life): The student life there is much more unrestricted than compared to the dorms in India. This allowed me to experience a lot more than I would have here in India. The safety is better there as well so its easier for a female to stay out till late. There's also less judgment from people around there.
Dislikes (Value for money): Compared to the student fee in India, the fee here can be high. It often takes multiple years to pay a loan off, if one decides to take one. The cost of activities otherwise and purchasing your own items can be expensive as well. While the quality of life is better here, it is also expensive especially with the growing crowd.
