Bidding adieu to alma mater


Bidding adieu to alma mater

For the students, mixed feelings of bidding adieu to what was their every day routine and the nervous anticipation of stepping into a brave new world had an element of genuineness about them. 

The ceremony did have its dose of long speeches and entertainment. The seniors couldn’t stop raving about the memorable, joyous years they spent at college. Gifts were exchanged and slam books were passed around for some last minute wishes. All in all it was a teary farewell.

While the students were happy that they’d successfully completed another phase in their life, they said they’d terribly miss those carefree days in college. ‘I’ll miss my friends’ was a common refrain that ran through and through. Most of the students have been campus recruited into prestigious companies across the country.

N S Pallavi, a student of BBM says, “I am stepping into a whole new world but I’d miss the support and encouragement I got from my friends and faculty. They stood by me no matter what,” and adds, “I will miss that sense of security.” Arun Johny has been placed with the BPO at Infosys. He’s excited about starting work but he says nothing matches college life, “the college managed to provide good infrastructure in a small area. The guidance from the faculty and the ambience are something that I will never get back,” says Arun.

The same streak of emotion ran through the faculty members as well. They shared both good and bad times with the students. Swetha Kumaraswamy, faculty of international finance and management studies observes that each batch has been different, “I’ve always noticed that it’s in the sixth semester that students really begin to enjoy themselves because they realise that they’d soon be graduating. There are students who are serious about their academics and there are those who get serious about their career only at the fag end of the academic year,” she wraps up.
