“Dear Parents, continue your care !”

T.P.Ramachandran said that he expects the parents to show the same untiring care to their children even in their collegiate years like how they had shown till the end of school days. As the students’ lives will be entirely new, the parents need to be alert and continue to follow them.


He pointed that option to communicate and interact with peers will be more for the youth nowadays and he made it clear that when parents follow their children’s progress, they can certainly be directed on the right path to success without diverting their energy or attention elsewhere. He welcomed the parents to keep in touch with the faculty and principal, to know their son/daughter’s progress every now and then.

“Dear Students, Show interest , You will shine”

The Managing Trustee assured that the college will fulfill the students’ expectations and all the students would be required to do is Show Interest, Be Punctual to college and  Concentrate the classes.  He suggested them to read English newspapers and make it a habit, as it will certainly help them develop a strong foundation in English.  He invited them to enjoy the collegiate time with discipline, develop skill sets and be responsible individuals.

“Welcome to College Life”

Nithya Ramachandran, Joint-Deputy Secretary of the college advised the students to take care of their health during this pandemic time. She urged them to take online classes very seriously and attend them regularly.  As the education system in India is going into a major overhaul and implementation of technology and gadgets like smartphones, tablets, laptops have become a part of education more than ever, she asked them to use them optimally.

For those students without laptops or desktops at home, she requested the parents to provide one along with data connection, as courses will go online till the pandemic is dealt with.

 “Increase your knowledge, elevate your positive attitude”

The Chief Guest, Dr.A.Vimala said that what a college student accomplishes in college will result in his/her career and eventually the quality of lives. As college period gives the students enough time to engage in any activity, she presented them almost all the available opportunities to build career and entrepreneurship.

She pointed that knowing English is very essential for communication and career. “You need not speak like William Shakespeare, but be strong enough to develop a good communication with others. Dont be disheartened if you could not master grammar when you begin. It is easy if you practice daily”.

She advised them to take part in the placement coaching programs offered by the college. She said that placement interviews will have communication and aptitude tests, and for that students should not be afraid about but get the training the college offers.

Dr.Vimala conveyed that students without arrears are what recruiters would seek while hiring,  and if a student has any arrears, it must be cleared before entering 5th semester. She encouraged the students to make use of technology in a positive way and consider utilizing the entrepreneurship cell that is available in college if their interest lies in being entrepreneurs.

She said that if students would like to get into TNPSC, they can prepare for that very well in their college days. Group -II and Group-IV exams  can be pursued with 10th and 12th clearance but that should not be the ultimate objective of them. She conveyed the importance of a UG Degree and how valuable experience could be gained in course of time they spend in this institution.

She advised them not to drown in the tech-traps laid by social media which would eventually affect their emotional and mental health. She encouraged them to enhance their personality – which is not about their external self but their empowered self.
