In the words of Ujala H Rai:
One of the most interesting stages in life that gives you an opportunity to explore is the ‘college phase.’ Life at an MBA college/ campus is the time when the teenage years end and we all dive deep into the ocean of new beginnings and possibilities. This golden phase better equips you for all the challenges you’ll face in life and create a strong foundation of knowledge.
My experience at Sri Balaji University, Pune (SBUP) has taught me one fundamental thing – life is unpredictable. It might be good, it might be bad, it might be weird, and it might not interest you, but expect anything to happen. For example, you might have a wonderful job this moment, and be fired the very next moment. College life prepares you for all of this. It is a perfect blend of joy and hardships. You meet different people, you interact with them, you learn about their cultures and grow as a person. You will understand how to talk to different people, how to take everyone’s opinions in perspective, thus helping you develop important life skills.
You learn to sit through at times, a boring lecture; you try to cope up with the surprisingly strenuous syllabus, and you have the opportunity to learn from some great research minds. Academia, as they say, never lets you go free. People might try to motivate you by telling that you need to study only through your school years and chill during the college life, but that isn’t true. Life at an MBA college like SBUP is critical as this is the door way to corporate life.
Another life lesson you will remember – the learning never ends. You find campus groups or student groups where you can explore your co-curricular skills along with many other students like you. You share common interests, and thus you share common ideas. Trust me, once you get into a good college, you will get an opportunity to be the artist you always wanted to be through probably a fine arts campus group. You could be that director, you could be that vocalist, you could be the dancer of your dreams – college is the Santa Claus that keeps on giving all these wonderful opportunities while you’re in it.
At SBUP, there are also campus festivals, which draw a lot of fun crowd from other colleges and lets you show off your skills. You could also enjoy with the celebrities who are invited to perform, or even show off your management prowess in a management/ youth festival being organized.
Thank you SBUP family for giving me such an wonderful experience.
