Question: You must have had a memorable time at your college. Do you miss being a part of it? Share a few good memories.

Answer: As it was a full-time residential program, I have a lot of good memories about my time spent in the classroom, campus, and hostel. Whenever I connect with my IMT friends, it is always fondly remembered. We were mischievous in our way and were able to have a lot of laughs during and between the time spent in the classroom, assignments, internship, extra-curricular activities, etc., and recall it to date.

Question: Briefly take us through your life at the campus, the activities you used to do and your routine life.

Answer: On a typical day, we would have classes till the evening where in between we would sneak some fun time in the canteen. Depending upon the schedule, we would spend the remaining time completing the assignments, reading material for the next day. Since we all were staying on the campus, it was easy to connect with peers and to unwind we spent late evenings on multi-player games.
