We provide an interface for students coming to the US for the first time (in terms of a welcome package with reference to life in Pittsburgh, items they should bring with them, what to expect in Pittsburgh, housing tips, etc).
Institute a customized mentoring program within the SABA. Mentors will aim to provide insights into the classes at Tepper, life at Tepper, opportunities for international students and issues within Tepper that new students need to be aware of. Help members with their job search. We believe that South Asian students will find it easier to informally speak with South Asian alumni (especially those from their respective countries), and similarly, alum would be open to help students from their countries.
Bring in guest speakers to talk to the SABA about opportunities for international students (specifically, from South Asia). Hold cultural events on festivals like Diwali or Independence Day and welcome / farewell parties. Eventually, we hope to link a number of these organizations across several business schools.
