“I’m not used to people being so friendly in India. At least from where I come from in Mumbai, it’s a city, and it’s a fast city. People don’t have time for you. But when I came to Flagstaff, I was like, wow, people randomly smile at you. People are so friendly. They care about you. Now, I cherish that.”
– Glen D'Silva, pursuing a doctorate in Mechanical Engineering, Flagstaff Campus
