A day which is full of happening encounters, experiences that transform the lookout as an individual and education that transforms you as an individual. This is about the Life of PI. Do not get me wrong here. PI is nothing but the Pupil at IMS Ghaziabad. My alma mater that has shaped the individual I am.
At the college the day usually starts early. We packed our bags and had a quick breakfast. The bus to the campus would be ready to take the students from our hostels. It was a joy ride heading to the campus whilst catching up with the batchmates early morning on their progress and the assignments for the day. It has always been a delight to enter our well furnished classrooms that has the best available amenities like air conditioned milieu, top quality technical equipment to assist in our lectures that included audio visual aids and other multimedia enablers. As a matter of fact, we were completely awestruck on our first day. Coming out of graduate school it was a mesmerizing encounter to find such a beautiful environment for studies.
Our lectures are based on various real life business challenges that help us to get into the shoes of the corporate managers and delve on real business solutions. This is accompanied with videos and other case studies that further enhances our learning. Post our morning lectures we get small breaks to rejuvenate ourselves. Depending on our electives we also get some interval before our next lecture. So the pupils head either to a library to dive into a plethora of reading material provided by the institute or few others choose to head to our state of art computer centre. Our computer centre provides us the latest technology with uninterrupted internet access to ensure highest degree of assistance in a student’s learning experience. We can research on latest business developments to various project assignments which are a team activity with well defined deadlines. This actually gives us a flavor of the corporate life where business managers are supposed to provide deliverable as a team.
Post all the hard work it is time to refresh yourself with your friends in our chill out zone. Yes guys, it is our cafeteria where we not only eat food but also engross in high octane discussions on politics to economy to movies and what not. And you never know, when your professor main join you for a cup of coffee and share their memorable experiences from student days. All in all, it is a fun filled ride to the evening accompanied with a lot of learning and experience sharing.
There are occasions when we head to the huge auditorium that can seat the entire batch and we get to experience the latest from the guest speakers who share their industry experience with the students. This is also followed by high tea sessions where students can informally chat and network to understand more from the industry insiders about any topic under the sun. Overall, this enriching lifestyle at IMS Ghaziabad is nothing short of a roller coaster ride.
