Gauri Babu and family

Anthropology major Gauri Babu (at right) experienced some nerves upon arriving at UMSL for her first semester of college on Friday, but soon she was feeling right at home thanks to a helpful crew of volunteers and supportive family. She’s pictured here with her parents, Ajit and Madhu Babu, and her brother Giridhar Babu, also a UMSL student.
