Bio: My name is Umang Jain, and I am a graduate student at Rutgers University, pursuing master’s degree in Information technology and Analytics. Working as a graduate assistant at The Office of International Student and Scholar Services has been a huge factor in my success at Rutgers – Newark, so far. OISS has always helped me and makes a great effort to educate international students on how to maintain their legal status. Orientation programs, Meet and Greets, and social events organized by OISS are beneficial in learning and experiencing the student culture at Rutgers. Thanks to the efforts of the OISS and the knowledgeable team we have who offer their support whenever needed. The availability of OISS at any time is the icing on the cake.
