“The time I spent at Cambridge had a deep impact on me, both on an academic and personal level. Academically, I was continually challenged by world class faculty who incorporated real world problems into theoretical concepts. On the social front, the interactions I had with people from across the world on issues ranging from politics to spirituality is something that I will cherish throughout my life.  Being on the Cambridge campus, I felt I was transported back in time. The old buildings and narrow streets exude a charm of their own that no other campus around the world can match. Participating in traditions such as formal dinners, punting, bops, and May Ball parties is something one can only experience in Cambridge. Knowing that I am part of an institution with an 800 year old legacy is something that makes me feel really proud that I chose to attend Cambridge”.
