CTE In­sti­tute of Phar­macy in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Vasan Eye Care, Lud­hi­ana, suc­cess­fully or­ga­nized Free Eye check-up camp un­der the guid­ance of Dr. In­der­preet Singh, Med­i­cal Di­rec­tor of the Vasan Eye Care, Lud­hi­ana, along with his team mem­bers, on 2nd Nov 2012, at PCTE Cam­pus 2, Lud­hi­ana. On this oc­ca­sion Dr. G. S. Gill, Di­rec­tor Ad­min­is­tra­tion in­au­gu­rated the camp where 270 stu­dents, fac­ulty mem­bers & staff of PCTE & peo­ple from nearby vil­lages availed this op­por­tu­nity. Ex­perts guided and di­ag­nosed the oph­thalmic prob­lems. Pre­cau­tion­ary guide­lines were pro­vided for man­ag­ing eye in­fec­tions. B-Phar­macy stu­dents ac­tively par­tic­i­pated and learned about the man­age­ment skills re­quired in the Eye Hos­pi­tals. Dr. K.N.S Kang, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral, PCTE Group of In­sti­tutes em­pha­sised that many of th­ese types of camps to be or­ga­nized in fu­ture, will help in cre­at­ing aware­ness to­wards health. All fac­ulty and staff mem­bers made this event suc­cess­ful un­der the guid­ance of Dr. S. K. Mun­shi, Dean Sixty new In­ter­na­tional stu­dents were wel­comed to PCTE Group of In­sti­tutes in a wel­come bash with lunch, party, DJ, mu­sic, games and danc­ing. In all there are now 119 stu­dents from 16 dif­fer­ent coun­tries study­ing at PCTE cam­pus. Amidst this gala of events, they were ad­dressed by His Ex­cel­lency, Maj Gen V Nam­gyel, Am­bas­sador of Bhutan to In­dia, Ja­pan, Afghanistan and Nepal af­ter lunch. He said they had half the world come to­gether right here at PCTE, and they should make the best of it. Th­ese friends alone can mean trade, op­por­tu­ni­ties, and life long friend­ship. He en­cour­aged them to bond with each other. In this ses­sion 16 in­ter­na­tional stu­dents out of to­tal 60 have joined from five new coun­tries namely Kyr­gyzs­tan, Mace­do­nia, Namibia, South Su­dan, and Bu­rundi, and about 40 stu­dents passed out this year from var­i­ous coun­tries, in­formed Dr. K.N.S.Kang, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral, PCTE Group of In­sti­tutes. In­ter­na­tional stu­dents from USA, Rwanda, Afghanistan, Bhutan, Tan­za­nia, Mozam­bique, An­gola, Le­sotho, Rwanda, Uganda and Zim­babwe were al­ready study­ing in PCTE. Dr. Kang said, “Ten stu­dents from South Su­dan, 11 from An­gola, 11 from Uganda and one each from Mace­do­nia and Kyr­gyzs­tan, 3 from Bu­rundi, 1 from Namibia, 6 from Afghanistan, 7 from Tan­za­nia, 3 from Rwanda have joined PCTE this year.” He fur­ther elab­o­rated that this year 19 In­ter­na­tional stu­dents have joined in BBA, 3 stu­dents have joined in B.Sc ATHM, 25 stu­dents in BCA, 2 stu­dents in B.Com (Pro­fes­sional), 4 stu­dents in B. Pharma, 3 stu­dents in Bio Tech, 2 stu­dents in MBA IB and 1 stu­dent in each MBA and M.Sc IT. He said that the pres­ence of In­ter­na­tional stu­dents in the in­sti­tute builds up the mo­rale of the In­dian na­tional stu­dents as well. To be at in­ter­na­tional global level one can groom one­self by hav­ing di­verse opin­ions within the class­room, hence­forth pro­vid­ing im­mense ex­po­sure to the stu­dents at large. Hav­ing In­ter­na­tional stu­dents have made PCTE go global. Koena, a stu­dent of BBA-First se­mes­ter, from Le­sotho said, “It hardly makes any dif­fer­ence to me whether I am in An­gola or in In­dia be­cause my cul­ture and be­liefs are the same like In­di­ans. I feel very com­fort­able here. PCTE is a sec­ond home to me.” Be­va­nia Martins, a stu­dent from An­gola, who joined BCA said that it was won­der­ful to deal with dif­fer­ent cul­tures and good way to meet all the for­eign stu­dents and the pres­ence of the Am­bas­sador Nam­gyel made it more won­der­ful. “I really thank Dr. Kang for or­ga­niz­ing such days,” he says.
