Sometimes, I wish that I could go back and shake eighteen-year-old me, the one who was so worried about joining a college in general, and MOP Vaishnav College in particular, and laugh and tell her that it would all be okay. My college is a unique blend of the traditional and the modern - a medley of learning and fun. Let me start by telling you about the infrastructure. I'll be the first amongst many to admit that my college campus isn't large, it's an affectionate joke amongst the students that we call it "The Apartment" in lieu of its size. But it more than makes up for it in terms of the rest of its infrastructure. All of the classrooms are equipped with state-of-the-art speakers, the microphone for the teachers to speak. They are tricked out with projectors for external learning. Our canteen serves, frankly, amazing food - with a special recommendation for the juice counter. Our library is stocked with books on multiple subjects, and internet access for more research. The college has several seminar rooms for guest speakers, and its several media and commerce labs are fully equipped. If I had one suggestion, I would request that the college paid a little more attention to sports. Although we have a ground, it would be nice if we had more sports periods. My college offers good placement opportunities. The students attain placements in news houses, media houses and even corporate companies sometimes. The college has always focused on bringing in stalwarts from the industry to speak to the students and answer any doubts that they may have. The department of journalism, which is my department, has seen lectures and workshops from news anchors, writers, reporters and editors coming in to talk about our field and demonstrate. It has been tremendously helpful for all of us. We've really gotten to see what our careers in the media will be like - we've had it all explained and seen the proof. About once every month, we have workshops. One suggestion I have is more visits from corporate houses. While we've seen from the media side of it all, it would be wonderful if some people from corporate companies could visit, to show us life in corporate companies, which I understand can be quite difficult to adapt to. Another suggestion is I wish we had more workshops from more sides of journalism - like marketing or PR. The faculty of my college are warm, open, friendly, non-judgmental and really know their stuff. I feel like I can talk to them about anything, and they will not judge me. They have been nothing but supportive of my extracurricular activities as well, my HOD and one of my teachers in fact put my name down for an essay competition, knowing that I would like to go. I feel like they mentor me, and they look out for my interests - I'd never regret approaching them with my problems. My social issues teacher and my EVS teacher, in particular, were amazing - my social issues teacher talked to us about life, aside from our studies, gave us advice, and heard every story we told her. My EVS teacher mentored us about different parts of journalism and said that she'd answer any question we asked her, no matter how ridiculous it was. The students in my college are an eclectic mix of all religious, financial and ideological backgrounds. They are warm, intelligent, bright girls with a desire to prove themselves to the world. I found that being in this environment was very comforting to me. I had confidence issues before I came to the college, and most of them were fixed mainly because of the people that I've seen around me. My class, in particular, is extremely nice, warm, intelligent and talkative (maybe a little too much). Seeing this mix has made me grow up., because I came from a conservative school, and I never got the chance to interact with this kind of diversity. It's really changed me as a person. My college fees are quite affordable for its terms. I don't have much to say for that. My college life is vibrant, and interesting, and filled with different experiences. The one-and-a-half years of college that I've done has changed me more than anything else has. I have been able to change and grow, and have fun, and just live my life, and it's all due to this college. This college will take good care of you. It provides you an opportunity to learn and grow, and you'll lose yourself to find yourself. I'd recommend it to anybody.
