The students were indeed excited to hear the challenging assignments carried out by Deepika at Unilever USA. The students were thrilled by the concluding remarks of Deepika which went as “Enjoy College. It is more than just classes. You’ll learn a lot from making friends and participating in extra-curricular activities. The connections you make in college will help you throughout life. Don't stress out over mistakes. They are actually opportunities for learning; it is not the end of the world. Be bold. Don't be afraid to ask for opportunities you want! Sometimes, waiting around for somebody to recognize your talent or skills won’t work in the real world outside college. So believe in your own self worth and seek out opportunities. This is especially true for my fellow female ChemE’s.”
The program ended with introduction of faculty team from the Department of Chemical Engineering who are also alumnus of top ranking institutions like IIT, BITS Pilani and NITs and group photograph. Proud to be Banasthalites who attended the orientation left with beaming faces and pride that they were indeed part of an institution which is a shining jewel in the crown among the institutions in India today.
