F. Exchange Student Testimonial: Nigel Chua Jia En (17 Exchange) – SMU



“I’m no less than 100% grateful for the semester spent at JGU. I was warmly
welcomed during the buddy project and even beyond, thoroughly entertained by
the fests and celebrations, and challenged by the international curriculum. The
countryside location of JGU offered a peaceful and safe respite from the bustle of
Delhi while serving as a good base from which to launch out for our travels. One of
the highlights was definitely a trip to Kareri Lake with a group of students, where
great friendships were forged while trekking up the scenic mountains. An
experience I would forever cherish, and never forget.”
