On behalf of Symbiosis in general and the Symbiosis College of Arts and Commerce in particular, I appreciate the interest shown by you in our institution.
At present education is undergoing a sea change and it is quite understandable that it becomes difficult to make decisions about which course and which college to choose.
In any case, the ultimate aim of education is to make a person knowledgeable and well informed and offer him/her some life skills so that one can earn one’s livelihood.
In today’s world it would certainly be myopic to look at any educational programme purely from the job placement point of view…..
“The most beneficial course for me was Dance Appreciation. Guru Suchitra Date who conducted this course is truly a brilliant dancer and a person who helped us discover different dance forms and their amazing history. Being a classical dancer I have always felt that we take practical education but lag behind in learning the theory. The liberal arts courses give us both which has benefited me the most. The field trip to Amul factory (Anand, Gujurat) and meeting the great personality Shri Kurian was like a dream come true. The unbelievable transformation which I see in myself is that today I walk confidently in a group of people and put forth my ideas in front of them.”
“SCLA has imparted the confidence in me to speak out my views on various subjects and interact in the class, and not just stick to the coursework and the books. Till now I have undertaken 4 courses, and my favorite has been IEC (INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC COOPERATION), as it has been one of the classes which required me to devote most of my time to it, and would keep me busy even at home and I have never felt it as an extra burden. I have always been waiting for the next class to start.”
“To make it short and sweet, liberal arts is the answer to every problem or complaint you have against the Indian Education System! And if you have none, then it is the cure to your blindness.Everyone wishes to have a teacher as his/her mentor throughout their life, who’ll be your friend, a guiding light and a source of inspiration and wisdom always… and at Liberal Arts, you are sure to get yours!”
“Today I don’t think we can blame the educational system anymore. It’s all changing. Come be a part of it.”
“5 Years of Symbiosis and each year has been a milestone in itself. An all- round development with quality education and extra -curricular is quintessential in Symbiosis. The degree with honours programme is diverse and skill enhancing. The life skills programme gives you a practical exposure which is extremely important for a student. Symbiosis has always been a home more than a college for me.”
“5 years with this magnificent institution has not only been a fabulous experience but also a stage for tremendous exposure professionally. Pursuing a B.A. Economics degree would not have been so rewarding anywhere else. The number of opportunities given to us during every event is commendable. The trust and guidance put into the students by the entire faculty is something that makes us (students) more responsible and honored. Hoping to contribute more and more with every passing schedule. ”
“SCAC and SCLA together have created a platform to give me exposure to a range of opportunities rather than focusing solely on the mainstream academics. The college has created an environment which I found very conducive to personal growth. I remember noting the changes in my personality over the course of these two years.
From the course, I can note the efforts put in by the respective teachers and authorities to ensure that the students benefit and get to learn the most. At the same time, we are constantly reminded that the program is not in place to take its undue advantage. The degree with honors program also takes care of a holistic approach to education by incorporating interdisciplinary and life skills’ courses. Apart from all these, the different events and fests conducted on the campus make sure that a fun-filled college life is not forgotten at all, making this college all the more likeable.
