When I got admission in B.Tech Biotechnology at Sir Padampat Singhania University I had no clue of the university and the life there as mine was the first batch of the university. I was very apprehensive initially but my fears were unfounded and SPSU became my second home. The faculty members of my department are experts in their respective fields and gave us excellent technical knowledge. This, coupled with the excellent laboratory infrastructure ensured that we got the best and latest technical knowledge. What sets Sir Padampat Singhania University apart is the emotional bond which the faculty shares with the students. By God's grace and the technical knowledge gained during my B.Tech I am a Junior Environmental Engineer, Rajasthan Pollution Control Board, Jaipur.
I think my time at SPSU was pretty crucial in making me what I am today. For me and most of my batch mates, it was the first time we were on our own, away from the comfort of home, trying to figure out how the world works. It helps you to adopt better if you have a nurturing environment around you - like the one we found at SPSU. SPSU has collaborated with several universities all across the world and frequently conducts student exchange programs. I was fortunate enough to be a part of one such program and ended up doing my final year project at Alabama State University in USA. For 6 months, I worked on a project backed by the National Science Foundation (NSF). The experience of working with some of the brightest scientific minds from around the world was just surreal. My four years here kind of breezed through, and I ended up making a lot of lovely memories. From academics to sports to extra curriculars, I took keen interest in everything and found ample support in whatever I wanted to do. The fact that I am currently working in a field that has little to do with my actual degree would tell how seeking new opportunities and challenges was always fostered here. The campus life was so much fun too. The premises were huge and I found most of the facilities I could ask for. The faculty members were well-read, experienced, and always went that extra mile to help students. If someone would ask me to relive the college life again, I would do that without any hesitation. That's how special this place was for me.
SPSU is a home away from home. Right from basketball court to canteen and auditorium to hostels, bright colourful smiling faces can be seen everywhere. Students in groups and in two, playing and discussing thoughts and plans. I was one of them. We used to sit near the mess with our group of 8, chit chatting all evening and enjoying our days of college. I wonder sometimes, how difficult life would have been for those who did not get a chance to study in colleges like SPSU where each and every facility is provided to you. The hostels, mess, labs, classrooms, canteen and the campus, everything is so clean and properly maintained. We had facility to work in labs even after college hours, we were allowed to sit in the library and study till 9 in the evening and even extra help from faculties after classes were entertained by the college staff. A huge range of extra co-curricular activities were designed in SPSU to engage students and help them show their talent. Clubs and activities include cultural clubs, sports clubs, entrepreneurship club, software coding club and many more in different domains. Every club and event was driven by students. Usually in colleges the students aren't given the independence to share and discuss their problems with the management but here in SPSU we were given chance to speak directly even to the top management and sort out the issues. Proper teams with student and faculty members are assigned so as to discuss the problems related to everything in and around the campus. Mess team, hostel representatives, and concern team is also responsible to take care of each and every activity happening in daily routine in the campus. The most important part of the university which I liked was freedom to initiate things and give ideas regarding all e.g. conducting workshops, seminars, cultural and sports events, projects, etc. Students are most welcome to give their ideas and help in the betterment of the university processes and atmosphere. I would say I had a wonderful experience spending my 4 years at SPSU. It was worth learning and growing here.
The time spent at Sir Padampat Singhania University was the best time of my life. The dedicated faculty members, contemporary curriculum, extracurricular activities and hostel life made my stay at the university a very happy and fruitful one. The International Exchange programmes at Japan and Czech Republic further enhanced my personality and knowledge. Concern Cell, (of which I also was a part) under the guidance of Vice President Ma'am, helped the students of the university to spread their wings and fly confidently. I am now working as Deputy Airport Manager, Indigo Airlines. Thanks to SPSU for shaping my personality.
Knowledge is a virtue and a gift which I received in abundance from my beloved Alma Mater Sir Padampat Singhania University. A blend of learning, exposure, values and belongingness is what makes SPSU stand out and develop the students with the spirit to fight and face the competitive world. Being a part of MBA integrated course for 5years with this institution helped me in evolving myself to the best of my capabilities and understanding my inner potential. Comprehensive syllabus and prominent courses helped me developing a holistic view towards the in and out of the industrial world. SPSU provides one of the best international student exchange programmes where students are given a chance to gain international exposure. Being selected for Student exchange programme at Chiba University of Commerce, Japan and also at Mendel University Brno (Czech Republic) developed in me tenacity and a sense of reality towards the outside world. Learning about different perspectives taught at these foreign universities, working on projects with local students, visiting some of the top companies of these countries brought out a sense of awareness about varied managerial outlooks and practices being followed. SPSU supports and nurtures every student as an individual and provides a platform to develop as per their own interests. The curriculum is well designed, Library provides an array of resources with world renowned online database which further helps a student to expand his/her horizon of knowledge. Being a JRF and subsequently being selected for PhD at IIM Kozhikode, I feel a deep sense of gratitude towards the dedication, support and motivation of each faculty member who instilled in me the understanding of being a researcher. SPSU has emerged in southern Rajasthan as a quality addition to the academic environment of the region. I always wish well to my Alma mater that it reaches the international arena in name and fame and serves the upcoming generations.
