“It was a life-changing decision for me to join Shoolini University. It helped me become a better person, personally and professionally, both,” says Deepash Kumar, alumni of BTech Biotechnology (2013-14), who hails from Jammu and Kashmir.
Deepash Kumar: Placed with Iceland Foods
Working as a Territory Manager of Sales with Iceland Foods for the entire Goa region, he says the friendly environment and systematic approach towards education made him a competent individual. “The time spent on the campus is truly memorable and I still miss the simple and fun-filled life,” he laughs with a twinkle in his eyes.
Reminiscing his university days, he remarks that the faculty was very supportive. He said that they encouraged every student to push boundaries and rise above expectations. He believes that the best part of the University was the stress on the overall development of every student — be it education, cultural awareness, or practical exposure to industries.
Talking about campus placements, he said the placement activities were phenomenal. He said it came with a training programme called SPRINT, which helped students enhance their personality and face interviews confidently. “I think these activities prepared me to face the challenges of the corporate world with conviction and presence of mind,” Kumar remarks.
His favourite teacher was Dr Pankaj Chouhan, who taught him Biochemistry. The Old Library on the campus, which is now the Administrative Block, holds a special place in his heart.
One of his fondest memories of university life was the class visit to Chitkara University for a fest, which turned out to be an unforgettable day. He said he had high ambitions and aspirations and was working hard to bring more laurels to the University.
