ABOUT

We have all discussed about how important it is to develop our personality and attitude when we are in college. Apart from academics, these traits become very pivotal in the future. We will find very little opportunities to learn once we step into the real-world. There will be no guides who will teach these basic essentials required for a better career or personal life, it is all in our hands.

In UVCE, we learn a lot of such qualities along with our friends. This is evident even now when we watch our senior alumni and the wonderful relationship they have with their batchmates and thereby leading a great life. The amazing memories we recall of the college days, not just along with our classmates, but with our seniors-juniors and other batch friends are so essential that it shapes our approach to any situation. With this thought, we wanted to compare it with the current situation in the college, where due to numerous technical advancements and distractions, human interaction has become very less. This would create more difficulties in building the community in future, or to become an alumnus or even becoming worthy engineer.
