New chapter in their lives

After a two-month vacation, SJR Degree College of Women welcomed the fresh batch of first-year degree students.

It conducted an orientation programme for around 300 to 400 students, telling them what a student’s life is all about.

Anxiety, happiness and nervousness were evident on every student’s face. Dressed in their best attire, students came along with their parents.

The orientation programme started with a recital of a classical song by Chinmayi, a final-year degree student.

Speaking on the occasion, the chief guest P F Veerabhadhrappa, chairman of SJR Educational Society, said that students should be good listeners and understand the basics of the subject. If he or she is able to extract knowledge, it will be stored in their minds always.

“By mugging up or by getting 100 per cent marks, you will not gain success. You have to critically analyse everything. I also insist that all of you go for further studies. For this, you need to read a lot of reference papers,” he said.

The principal of the college, H M Tejaswini, stressed the need to maintain rules and regulations in the college — such as maintaining 75 per cent attendance, not using mobile phones, etc.

She also told the students to make 100 per cent use of the college infrastructure.
While concluding her speech, she wished all the students the best in their academics and told them to study well so that they could bring a good name to the college.

 “I am feeling very nervous and I am looking forward to studying in this college. I spent my vacation at home only. It was fun in the beginning but afterwards I was bored of sitting at home. I took BA as I want to pursue a career in journalism,” said Poornashree.

She said that her friends from her PU Government College did not join this college and she is eagerly waiting to make new ones.

Gnaneshwari, another first-year student, spent her vacation going to computer classes. She was as nervous as she was when she was joining her PU College.

A multi-talented student, Rohini did her schooling and PU education in Raichur. “I was very curious about joining this college. It is a new city for me and a new experience.

I am equally excited about making new friends. During my vacations, I spent time searching for new colleges as I couldn’t get through engineering institutes,” said Rohini.

Apart from academics, Rohini is also interested in singing, painting, drawing and dancing. She said that she will concentrate on her extracurricular activities as well as her academics.
