Making the most of their college days

Making the most of their college days


Looking forward: Final year students are balancing their studies with fun activities.

This holds true especially when they move to the final year. Most final year students start planning things out so that they can balance their academic schedule with fun activities.

Going out and having a good time with friends is the primary agenda of all final year students. But at the same time, they also keep their eyes open for career opportunities and plan their strategy to take on the world soon after their college days. They want to enjoy their time in college while keeping a track of their studies too.

Akshay N, who is pursuing MBA in marketing at the BNM Institute of Technology, will be in his final year from the next academic year. “My final year will be more about parties, friends and trips. We have already made up our minds to watch movies and meet friends.

But that doesn’t mean we will neglect our academics. We will help one another during campus recruitment and exams. After our exams, we all will move to different places and may not be able stay in touch. So we will be utilising every single opportunity to hang out with each other,” he says.

Naveen BG, a commerce student from PES Degree College, Hanumanth Nagar, is all geared up to conduct ‘Zenith 2012’, the inter-collegiate festival of their college in a grand way. “Last year, due to some unknown reasons, the fest didn’t happen. That time as we were juniors, nothing was in our hand. But this year, ‘Zenith’ will be grander and a unique experience for all. And we are also thinking of going on a class trip. I have 16 close friends with whom I will be going for outings every month. These apart, we will work hard to get placed so that we can settle down in our career,” says Naveen.

So for students, the final year means a lot of fun and a time to think seriously about their future. Raksha, an electrical and electronics engineering student from BNMIT, says she is looking forward to winning yet another gold medal in the upcoming VTU Fest. “I am an active member of our cultural club ‘Kala Bhagirathi’ through which, I had won the first place in the ‘one act play’ at last year’s VTU Fest. This time also, I am confident of giving my best and winning a medal. I also don’t want to miss out on any activities organised by our nature club, especially the bi-annual trips. We are also planning a ‘Thanksgiving Party’ for the faculty members who groomed us. This year, we will be celebrating everyone’s birthdays on a large scale and presenting gifts to them to make it memorable for them,” says Raksha, who is also serious about her final year projects and placements.

Some students are even thinking of joining additional courses which will help them secure a good job. Above all, they are excited about being the senior students of their respective colleges.

 “This means we have to be more responsible. From college festivals to any academic programmes, we need to take initiatives. It is in the final year that everyone comes closer and a special bond develops between us as we are parting after college.  I am really excited about this transformation. I hope I will have a good time with my friends,” says Surya, a commerce student.
