My intermediate at St. Mary’s will forever remain a very important part of my life. The faculty members treated each one of us like their own children and took care and guided us in the same way. However there are a few specific people who were always ready to go the extra mile to help us. My personal favourites are Akshara Singh mam and Radha Varada ma’am who were always there to help and support me in all aspects. Apart from education, the college also had us involved in community services that helped us appreciate what we have in life and also taught us the joy of giving back to the needy such as the trips to the orphanage. From being a brat, to now a responsible professional, St. Mary’s has helped me come a long way and I can never thank my teachers enough for this.
I joined St. Mary’s in 2008, the academic year had already started and I came in about two months later after spending some time at a different college. I settled in quite quickly and comfortably. My classmates were quite friendly and so was the faculty, that realized that I had just moved from Commerce to Science (yes, I did that) and helped me catch up on what I had missed.
The best part about this college is that the management understands that academics isn’t the only thing one needs to focus on and they encourage co-curricular activities and do not discourage mischief as long as you don’t cross the line. I made some really great friends while in my intermediate and we managed to be quite mischievous without getting into much trouble.
I absolutely loved being at St. Mary’s. To back my above statement of the management being quite encouraging, I could quote a personal example; I couldn’t clear two subjects in my first attempt in the first year and had quite average grades throughout. The college recognized and acknowledged my skills outside of academics and awarded me as the best student of my class (MPC 2008-10).
The journey was absolutely incredible. It was quite an easy decision for me to continue at St. Mary’s for my degree as well where I had 3 more years of great fun while learning, playing sports, doing a valuable internship and bagging a good job offer from campus placements.
I’m grateful to the college for where I am in life today. Thank you very much, St. Mary’s!
