Christ University is focused on making its students leaders and entrepreneurs rather than worker bees
ASTUDENT’S EXPERIENCE AT UNIVERSITY is supposed to be enthralling, filled with anticipation for the unknown, and packed with new discoveries. The moment I walked in through the huge gates of Christ University, I knew my journey here was going to be exactly that. It always amazes me to see the importance the university gives to the values it inculcates among students and staff.
On the academic front, the faculty at Christ have great industry experience and are experts in their fields. On more occasions than one, I have approached professors outside class hours and they have always been very receptive. Complex theories were explained to me with simple anecdotes from the real world. In fact, the professors are open to challenging questions
and always encourage healthy debates.
While one can at first be intimidated by the size and grandeur of the campus, you are soon in the thick of things. The university has the best of facilities, especially the libraries with their envious collection of books, academic as well as non-academic. The university has huge sports grounds, a well-stocked equipment room and professional coaches should you be inclined to take up physical pastime. And keeping in mind the student diversity—there are scholars here from all parts of the globe—the university has multiple canteens offering different cuisines. Being a foodie myself, I was never bored of meals at college as there was always a new thing to try.
The university is a believer of holistic development, something reflected in the variety of fests and competitions it hosts and organises. These provide an opportunity for everyone to grow as an individual and develop in ways that would otherwise seem impossible. I have seen some of the most shy and timid students shine on stage here.
Several students perhaps recognised their entrepreneurial abilities first by perticipating in such events. The university chooses the cream of applicants and while students get equal opportunities, there does exist a great deal of healthy competition.
The university attracts some of the best companies for placements and internships. Companies such as Goldman Sachs, DE Shaw, Axis Bank, Zomato and TCS are among the many who scout specially for Christ students.
The first few days as a fresher might seem difficult. The rules, regulations and dress code may seem unnecessary and overbearing in the beginning but as one sails though the days, months and years, it becomes a way of life. Christ University not only gives you the best education, it also gives you lots of wonderful memories and friends and mentors who stay with you for a lifetime.
