A stepping stone to their dreams

The first-year degree students of Maharani Arts and Science Women’s College are very clear on why they chose this institute — it was for the sense of security that it offers and the warmth of the faculty members. They may not be high on fashion, but the young girls seem to know exactly what they want to do and achieve in the next three years.

The management opens the first-year degree course with an orientation programme, which familiarises the students with the rules and regulations of the college.

Emphasis is laid on the strict dress code and discipline on campus. The faculty are warm without being too overpowering and the management believes that only a friendly approach will get the students to fall in line with the culture of the college. Metrolife interacted with a few first-year degree students to understand what expectations they have from the college.

Most students hope to pursue their masters and try for the civil service exams. They say that they chose the college also because it offers coaching classes for the UPSC exams. The lab facilities, a well-stacked library with the best of reference books and a good placement programme are just some of the other things that attracted a large number of students to join Maharani Arts and Science Women’s College.
Huma Afshan is impressed with the good placement at the college.

 “I’ve heard that the college has good companies that come in during the placement season. And placement is an important part of any student’s life,” says Huma. Usha Kumari was a government school teacher with a school in Ramanagaram until she decided that she wanted to study further.

“I’ve decided to study again after teaching in a government school for 16 years. I’ve always liked science and hence, I chose that stream,” says Usha.

The good library and excellent coaching facilities prompted Saqlain Fathima to join the college.

 “I am not as nervous as I thought I would be on the first day. I’ve managed to make a couple of friends, because I think making the right circle of friends is important during the three-year degree course,” says Saqlain.

The college management wastes no time in getting its students to settle in with the culture of the college. Salma Begum, associate professor and head of department of economics, says, “The college has a counselling cell where students can share their problems. The students are told that they can approach the teachers any time for just about any problem that they may have. We also have a few ice-breaking sessions at the start of the orientation to help students develop self-confidence.”
