A tribute to warm yooper culture

To the amazing team of IPS,

Life away from home and family is always difficult. Being in a foreign land makes it even worse. Thank you so much for being there with your kind behavior and helpful gestures.

The day I first landed at the Chicago airport, I was carrying three huge suitcases and there were no familiar faces around until I stepped outside and saw a group of people wearing yellow T-shirts. I soon recognized the Michigan Tech logo and approached them. Yes, they were IPS volunteers. From Chicago to Houghton, from the home town in India to an unknown city in northern Michigan, you made my transformation easy.

Thank you so much for always being there with your smiling faces. I know if there is any problem, you are the people I can approach without hesitation. Keep rocking, keep helping us and keep being awesome.

P.S: Please keep organizing the fun events, as well!
