Speaking before the event, U.S. Embassy Spokesperson Christopher Elms said, “We want students from India to explore the diversity of U.S. higher education opportunities at the alumni fair. The United States welcomes Indian students, and we value their contributions to U.S. campuses and communities. The strong and growing relationship the United States and India share is built on the exchange of knowledge and the lifelong friendships rooted in Indian students’ time in the United States.” 

 Also speaking about the event, Adam Grotsky, Executive Director, USIEF, said “Indian students who are studying or have studied at American colleges and universities are citizen ambassadors who can provide accurate, often deeply personal, and nuanced narratives of their academic, extra-curricular and cross-cultural experiences in the United States. Such occasions to interact with several students and alumni of different U.S. universities, all in one place, help prospective students in India to gain a closer look at the opportunities, challenges, and returns that such educational experiences have provided to many like them.”
