Unrolling the red carpet

Unrolling the red carpet

At home

It dedicated two full days to get the new batch acclimatised to the new environment. The management went all out to make sure that the students have a Subh Aarambh prior to their starting the year.

The freshers were more than excited on the first day and said they chose the college for its sense of discipline and the courses offered. Most confessed that they were quite nervous but also said in the same breath that they were happy with their choice of college and thought the teachers and the principal go that extra mile to make them feel at home on the first day.

The senior batch vouches for excellent placements and this is one among the prime reasons why most students joined Kristu Jayanti College.  Metrolife interacted with the first year degree students and faculty to gauge what their excitement and anxieties were on the opening day.

Students said they chose the college for its good campus culture. They say they had never heard of instances of ragging in any form and this is one of prime reasons for the choice. Namitha Mary, from first year BCom said that she liked the competitive spirit on campus. “It’s a very friendly atmosphere and there’s no sign of cut throat competition.

People here come across as warm and helpful. That’s what made me feel at home,” she said. Vineetha Wilson of first BCA observed, “The college provides ample opportunities for students to express themselves both academically and in cultural activities.”

Jejoy from first year BA said that she heard the psychology and journalism combination was good in the college, “I chose psychology because I want to help those in distress and I never wanted to study in a claustrophobic atmosphere and this is an apt place that provides the right amount of freedom.”

Reno and Ashwin, the first year students of BCom and finance said that more than the courses the faculty made the college popular, “I’ve heard that this college strikes the balance between freedom and academics. You can call the faculty at any time of the day or even after college hours, if necessary. That’s want every student wants,” said Reno.

Fr Augustine George, head of the Computer Science and International Studies said the management has totally banned ragging and has trained the senior batch to approach the students in a friendly manner. “There’s a certain standard of discipline and campus culture that we maintain. That’s why we organise a two-day orientation programme so that the students get a feel of the campus,” he explained.
