As an international student, Nithin Palyam felt embraced by USF’s culture, which emphasizes
inclusion, leadership and student success. Palyam’s college experience was his first
time abroad and initially he was timid as a first-year student. Once he learned about
the many student organizations and academic opportunities at USF, Palyam found himself
immersed in a community of student leaders. As a computer science major in the College of Engineering and Student Government president, Palyam is a true reflection of his parents (his mother is a mayor and his
father works in civil engineering). His goal is to complete his bachelor’s degree
and join India’s growing technology industry as an international business leader.
“I feel like I am right where I have to be for that dream to come into action,” Palyam
