The feeling of familiarity

The feeling of familiarity

Looks like, the new batch of postgraduate students of NMKRV College for Women are an excited lot. While many have returned to the same college, after completing their pre-university and undergraduate course, others have joined afresh.

‘Metrolife’ caught up with the fresh batch of students to get an insight into their expectations for the new academic year. 

The students were more than thrilled to share their experiences. Divya A, who has returned to pursue her masters in organic chemistry at the college, says going by her experiences of studying in the college, she was sure she wanted to be back. “It’s a wonderful environment. The faculty is among the best in this institution, which is one of the reasons why I didn’t even apply anywhere else,” she says.

Looking forward to balancing her time between classes and extracurricular activities, Divya says that she wishes to make the best use over the next two years. “It’s a crucial time when we need to work hard to get a good job,” she adds. 

The students, who share a comfortable rapport with their teachers, say that the lecturers make all the difference. “We never hesitate in asking questions or getting our doubts cleared,” says Pallavi HD, a student. She adds, “Over the next two years, I hope to get to know my strength and weaknesses better and work on them.”

The students, who are familiar with the college, say that they have nothing to complain about. “Before we can ask for anything, we get it. The laboratory facilities are really good. There are no second thoughts about the choice of the college,” says Chandana VS, a science student. The students have done their share of homework before choosing the course. “I spoke to my seniors who helped me finalise my decision. There’s a bridge course held by the college, which helps students brush up the basics,” says  Deepu R, another student.

A few of the students hope to return as lecturers after the completion of the course. “I am a product of this college and this is my sixth year. These days there is a lot of demand for lecturers. I really hope that I will get the opportunity to come back here,” says Roopashree, who opted out of an MBA course to pursue a master’s degree in pure sciences.

Sindhu Bhargavi, another student, shares similar aspirations. She says, “I will either choose research or teaching. Although, I am still to decide, I hope to get an opportunity to come back as a lecturer in this college.”
