An unforgettable odyssey

An unforgettable odyssey


Surana College organised the graduation day recently for its post-graduate students.

 The entire week leading to the day was a festive one as different cultural and extra-curricular events were held. While there were colourful events like solo and group singing, solo and group dancing, skits, fashion show and sports events like cricket, the ceremony held on the last day was a serious affair with the students taking the oath. 

The outgoing students were awarded medals and certificates and rank holders from the previous years were felicitated on the occasion. 

“I got the first rank for MCA from Bangalore University last year and I can vouch that it is only because of the assistance that the college gave me. I joined Surana College for degree and after seeing my scores, the college authorities told me that they would support me with a scholarship. The staff was always encouraging and told me to be with consistent with the scores,” said Swati Kanodia, student, who passed out the previous year.

Divya T, an MBA graduate, said that her college life was an interesting mix of studies and extra-curricular activities. Looking back at the years spent on campus, she said, “I have anchored many cultural programmes. These years were the best ones of my life.” 

Many students who have had a longer association with the campus said that the college was a second home to them. Said Chetan SV, an M.Sc psychology student, “I’ve been with Surana College since PUC. I did my under-graduation and post-graduation course here too. The college has one of the most supportive teams in academics and extra-curricular activities.

We had different activities like the journal club, book reviews, case conferences, presentations and industrial visits spread through our academic year, which helped us a lot,” he said. Chetan added that he learnt to manage himself and organise daily activities. 

“I developed the habit of public speaking in college. I used to have stage fear before that. The college helped build my confidence and I have come a long way,” he said.Abhijeet Singh Rathore, another MBA student who is from Delhi, said that the college accepted him with open arms. “Though I was an outsider, the college authorities and staff always treated me as one of their own and I never felt out of place.

It has been an emotional ride and I only have the best things to say about this college,” vouched Abhijeet. He said that the faculty always pushed the students to do their best and encouraged them at every step. “The best part was that even if we called our teachers late at night to clarify any doubts, they would always help us out,” he said.
