How to Contact ISA before leaving to US?
As I said above every University in USA will be having an Indian Students Association. You can contact them and get to know some general details regarding the University, Staying, Expenses etc. anything that you want to know before leaving to US. So how can you contact the ISA of your University? The way in which you can contact ISA will differ from one University to Another.
- Website: – ISA of some Universities have Website especially dedicated for this. You will find all the Information regarding the University, Expenses etc. on their Website. There will also be a Contact Page, which will have the ISA Members Email Addresses or Phone Numbers. So you can contact them using this and clarify any doubt that you have in your mind.
- Facebook Page: – ISA of some Universities will not have a dedicated website but they will have a Facebook Page dedicated for this. So you can go ahead and like their Facebook Page and get in touch with the members of ISA regarding your Queries that you may be having.
- Google Groups: – Most of the ISA will either have a Website or a Facebook Page. But some ISA will have a Particular Group in Google Groups. I haven’t seen many ISA having Google Groups but some of them have it. So you can get in touch with ISA members from there and get clarification on the doubts that you may have it.
So these are the three ways in which you can contact the ISA of a particular University.
