LIFE @ IFMR from the eyes of a new joiner

Two roads diverge in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler

These lines of Robert Frost exactly depict my dilemma of which Bschool to choose from other offers I had before I joined IFMR. My intuition and passion for finance made me zero in on IFMR. Though my decision to join IFMR was from my heart, there was always a feeling of intimidation at the right corner of my auricle about my decision.
Having never lived in a hostel before, I was apprehensive about the type of life it would expose me tobut all of my apprehensions were soon put to rest, because of the warm welcome I received. IFMR received me like a long lost prodigal daughter and took care of every of my needs so well, that within a span of only a month it has become not my Second home, but rather my home.
If you want to have a glimpse of Incredible India instead of running around the length and breadth of this country, try and spend a few hours here at the luxurious green campus: you will find people from all parts of the country: north, south, east and west peacefully co-existing. Bright young minds, brimming with new thoughts and actions, makeup a mlange of beautiful company
Finally it was the first day @ IFMR (July 1)-a day to start building my destiny towards a management career. Even after years of school, college and corporate life it was in no way different from my day one at kindergarten, haunted by the feeling of alien land (except that I dint cry out loudly). But I dint ever imagine that this alien land would make me feel like home in less than a week. The small cozy campus which made me complain previously is now the peaceful place which I love. A walk at the boulevard and campus especially at night gives me a sanguine sense of comfort and calmness. And the next best part is the liberty which we as a student get to express our views, problems and demands to the management who are quick to act instantly. Also the subjects are handled with a practical approach which acts as a strong foundation for our career. The professors here are amiable and are approachable without any second thought. In a nutshell, the students are solely responsible to shape up their future and there is no force feeding of things that are against our will. The different kinds of clubs and committees ranging from the core finance club to the creativity club helps to improve our knowledge tree by engaging us in various sorts of activities. And the nitty-gritty is they help creating a strong bond between the students through team work. To cap it all, I find that the seniors over here guide us in an extremely friendly manner and they make us feel them like our buddies than seniors. And the most fun-filled part is the hostel and its nocturnal life. From evening cricket, Night badminton, midnight maggi to graveyard shift studies, its a place which would make us reminisce in the rest of our life. In short, Life @ IFMR is completely driven by students and one would feel respected and dignified as a student here. Whoever comes to the campus will observe a huge banyan tree with its prop roots covering a large area forming a canopy at the centre of the campus. And I feel it as an epitome of synergy between the institution and its students. The prop roots symbolizing the students, support the main trunk, which is the institution and in course of time prop root becomes indistinguishable from the trunk and the tree as a whole expands and reaches a greater height. Thus we students like prop roots would always strive hard to create an unique brand name to IFMR standing by the lines of Robert Frosts lines in Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening

And I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
