Namaste! My name is Aanchal Gulati. I'm from Mumbai, India. I studied in Bombay till tenth grade and then went to an international school to complete my IB Diploma. Through that experience, I realized that there is much more to the world that I want to learn about! I was attracted to Grinnell because of the diversity here. My favorite subjects are Economics, Math, and Global Development Studies. I'm also learning languages (Korean and Chinese) and I'm taking a variety of subjects like Psychology and Sociology. In addition to academics, I'm involved in swing dance and aerobics. I'm also a Student Advisor (SA) for our very first sub-free south campus dorm! Although I have completed only one year at Grinnell, I feel like I am part of a wonderful community here!
I'm Akshay Gulati, also from Mumbai. I'm Aanchal's younger brother and fellow Grinnellian. I visited Grinnell College last summer - and absolutely loved it. Coming from a big city to a smaller and much quieter one, I feel very relaxed. I plan to major in Economics. The workload is heavy, with homework and reading every day, but I am also making time to work on campus and to play soccer. After coming to Grinnell, I have found many new and positive qualities within myself. I have had to make my own rules and govern my life the way I want to, which has made me already feel and become more mature and independent. I'm excited to be a part of the Grinnell community!
