Success story Vijnathi Katamaneni smiling.
Apart from academics, USD has activities/events been held throughout the semester. There will be an event or activities a week. The ones I liked most are movies in PIT area, GALA night, Diwali celebrations and so on. The best one was the Thanksgiving get-together at Computer Science Department with pot-luck lunch, and photos. In short, a small packet with big surprise.
