A bachelors in science from Christ University not only helps build a scientific temper, but also equips you with important life skills
CHRIST UNIVERSITY, A NAME synonymous with quality and excellence in education, provides students with the best of education to prepare them for the real world. As the world looks for multifaceted people, the university sculpts students into such individuals, encouraging them to test their limits, experience new things, build confidence and producing skilled persons. The science department, which was the first to be started in the university, inspires students to experiment and experience to this day. The faculty engages students in research, and helps find apt solutions to challenges. Every
educator is well-versed in the subject that he or she teaches, and keeps abreast of new inventions, discoveries and lab equipment. Apart from well-equipped laboratories for science practicals, there are two libraries at the disposal of the students.
Christ University is known to host several fests, competitions and field visits that fill the students with a desire to learn. The levels of a student’s understanding are tested through engaging competitions as well as interand intra-collegiate fests, national workshops and seminars where professors from reputed institutions like the IISc deliver lectures.
That’s not all. In our leisure time, plates of momo chaat sit side by side with Malabari parottas while fruit bowls and biryanis share space with brownies. All of us gather around and waste no time digging into the various dishes while passing them around.
As I look around, the campus is bubbling with activity. The law school students are rushing to get their moot memorials printed while the hotel management students are busy whipping up culinary delights and serving students at the numerous food stalls near the island. Alongside, the peer education team is holding a meeting to discuss how it can help and mentor
classmates and give mental health the priority it deserves. Students of theatre, meanwhile, are pinning the poster of yet another play on the main board.
As I climb the steps leading up to the first block, I hear various bands rehearsing for the Blossoms fest. Among the most popular events in the university, the judges always have a hard time picking a winner from the immense pool of talent. A lot of our students are actors and professional artists outside the campus and have been making the university proud elsewhere in the country and abroad. Of course, there are numerous other ways students are encouraged to give back to society.
There is no dearth of opportunity the university provides for us to become whoever we choose to be. So it is that you will find a BBA student singing next to a law student in the coveted university choir. Fests like Darpan, Blossoms, In-Bloom, Juristar foster a healthy competitive spirit among students while helping them develop a positive attitude towards victory and defeat. It is this that makes Christites easily cross the threshold to Ivy League institutes.
In events such as Gratitude Week, the student council felicitates every single member of the staff, from the security guards, who tirelessly protect our campus day and night to the housekeeping members, who keep the campus spotlessly clean as well as the administrative staff, who ensure the college functions smoothly, and the faculty, who give us lessons within and beyond the classroom.
It is said that each student who walks into the campus leaves behind a piece of him and takes along a part of the university along with him in the world. I still don’t know how to sum up my life here, but I couldn’t agree more as I finally accept that this time when I head back to my family at the end of the semester, I don’t know if I’m going home or leaving one.
