The VSA has been a home-away-from-home.  It has bee a pleasure associating with the group. All the fun activities, the discussions on the Ten Timeless Principles and the warmth will be cherished and  missed.

I spent a year in USA in 2006-07 as a Humphret Fellow at University of Washington. I am so glad that I heard about the International Students Incorporation and the Visiting Scholars Association immediately on landing in America because they have helped me so much in getting settles. While I has a very dear college friend who provided me a home, but I do know how volunteers from VSA picked my other friends up at the airport and provided a home ot stay in while they looked for housing. I continued a good friendship with Jeff, Gary and Simon and their team who run the service. They helped me in many ways including setting up my enitre apartment including providing for beds, tables, and all other furnishings. It helped me feel like I have home-away-from home. If I ever have opportunity to return to America I know they will help me. Would you please consider using their service for our instituting when sending scholars to America.

Thanking you
Yours sincerely,

I was hired as an Instructor at the Department of Chemistry, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA in 2005.  Even as my flight itineraries were finalized, Gary Ramm of Visiting Scholars Association (VSA) contacted me and welcomed me into the US ahead of my travel.  Gary arranged for airport pick-up and put me stay with them for about ten day before I found an apartment.  Another friend Simon Zeigler of the VSA also helped me with the search for an apartment and helped in furnishing my apartment.  Occasional events, such as a social get together, organized by the VSA are very helpful in developing professional network in the US. Gary Ramm, his wife Charlene Ramm, Simon Zeigler and his wife Becky Zeigler are great people to be friends with.
 
I continue to enjoy a good friendship with Gary, Charlene, Simon and Becky, and their team who run the service.  They are helpful to me in many ways.  It helped me feel like I have a home-away-from home.  I strongly recommend that any scholar visiting USA consider using the services of Visiting Scholar Association.
