Life at Campus: IIM Kashipur has excellence to offer
Among the newly established six IIMs, IIM Kashipur aims to strive for excellence and best managerial skills in the establishment of a campus culture. Even with a temporary campus, IIM Kashipur has a soul and life which can never be detached. Students here have one aim- To develop the best, dominating and a strong academic and Non-academic structure of IIM Kashipur.
Compared to last year, with a 47% increase in students, life at IIM Kashipur is a mix of rigorous academics and on-campus activities. One thing is obvious here; there are plenty of opportunities available for students to learn, explore and live. Sports, college events, lectures, assignments and hostel fun are what make IIM Kashipur campus a happening place.
The Busy Roastersâ¦
The acceptance of the fact that life at B-School is bound to be hectic is one thing that has molded students in a way that they are ready to follow the toughest of the schedules. Table tennis, Graffiti, cultural programmes, hostel night life and early morning hush, are all what makes a daily routine of IIM Kashipur students.
With the management programmes at IIMs being a compulsory residential, students divide their work equally. Their learning in the hostel is as fun as learning in the classes. From early morning breakfast to late night completion of assignments, each hour is packed for the students at the campus.
Ashwin Murali, student at IIM Kashipur says “The campus life is all about fun. Yes, we study. But we learn to have fun studying. The best thing about our campus life is the hostel experience”.
Excellence in academics, completing assignment on-time to participating in almost everything is a perfect description of IIM Kashipur students.
The Language Faff and Chocolate secretsâ¦
One of the interesting things about Life at Campus is that you get to know few of the insights that sometimes even the students are unaware of. The most interesting is the language part, the funny slangs will give you a hearty laughter. Similar is with the campus language of IIM Kashipur which makes you giggle every time you read them.
If you are one such person who loves delivering Bhashans or long lectures, there is only one word for you- ‘Faff’. People are not going to love you, as no one here is exactly a bhashan lover, rather, they like, short, exact and crisp talks. A bhashan is a Faff here! (Well, it actually is to everyone)
Another popular phrase used by the students is ‘param tatva praapthi’. We are sure we don’t have to give any explanations about the usage of these words. Everyone is smart enough to catch the meaning, Right!
The best, most exciting and unique is Chocolate. Of course the secret won’t be shared here; we don’t want the professors preaching the students. All we can tell you is that the word is non-offensive, necessary for few and fun to use. If you are so eager to know there is one way to find- follow the admission procedure, live in the campus and discover its meaning.
The Night Canteen to Chillâ¦
A typical IIM culture hardly has a provision of free time. But still being a student it is our right to spare some time for our frolic life. Similar, after so much hectic schedule, presentations, lectures and other events IIM Kashipur students take out time for their selves and spend it in the campus at their special corners.
One of the special corners is the Night Canteen which is solely run by the students. Thanks to their initiative, the late night cravings of food and other stuff can be managed. You not only get to eat but chat, gossip and relax with the friends and groups. One of the night canteens has an interesting name, Shageer Bhai’s Canteen. The name of this canteen is so interesting that we wish to visit, eat and enjoy this Bhai’s place.
Other important hangout is Vimal Ki Dukaan, the name makes us imagine a grocery store where you get everything for mummy papa and bache. Hilarious! But it is an eating hangout, where students get their favorite eatable and gossips too.
The Hive, Terrace and Romeo Lane are among the other places that are famous for spending time with friends and special friends. But we wonder what’s Romeo Lane is, our creative minds are having all sorts of Imaginations!
Corridors of Nature and Bike Rides â¦
Kashipur is situated in the laps of Uttrakhand, a serene, peaceful paradise surrounded by places that are on every travellers’ list. Having a campus situated at such a blissful state is an advantage that only few IIMs have. Manali, Haridwar, Kullu, Rishikesh, Chakrata, Dehradoon, Vikasnagar, Kasol, Jim Corbett, Nainital, Bhimtal etc. are just few places which are weekend getways for IIM Kashipur students. Now, these places for them are secret corridors to a heavenly escape.
The best part is, they travel to these places by bike. We are sure this info will make most of the people jealous. We crave and dream to have vacations especially bike rides through these beautiful mountains, and students here get this opportunity every weekend.
Another student, Shankar Shethe shares a great insight about the short trips. He says, “We get to have many adventure sport spots merely 5 hours from our campus. In such a small time span, a student cannot cover all of these. Top secret Hangout includes a bike ride with the director to lush green terrain of Uttarakhand”.
A top secret about this escape- students go on a bike trip to these places with their Director. Now how amazing and enviable is to enjoy a long bike ride accompanied with a Thadi tea on lush green terrains of Uttarakhand, sitting and sipping along with the Director. Ah!
The Recent actions on the Campusâ¦
IIM Kashipur students are busy with lots of activities that are functional round the year. Among the recent buzz, IIM Kashipur conducted a national level Annual Operation Seminar ‘NEEV’ which consisted of Panel Discussion and Pan-India Case Study Competition on ‘Logistics, Warehousing, GST’ and ‘Green Supply Chain’. Apart from that IIM Kashipur is hosting ‘ENVISAGE’: a National Level Competition on Innovative Ideas to Market a Film, with an association of iLead.
All fingers are crossed as IIM Kashipur will be organizing its first ever annual fest, which of course is in full planning. The excitement level of students and faculty members can really be felt; the pace of their planning is way too hasty. With just four years of being operational and an increased strength of 47% we are looking forward to a successful Annual Fest.
Besides the academic related activities and with three hostels, the so called hostel actions here are unstoppable. Lots of intra-college sports/games/cultural competitions are conducted throughout the year, to name a few; Table Tennis, Badminton, Cricket, Football and Volleyball.
The nights are always scheduled for club activities, which are sort of neglected in the daily academic related projects. Students meet for clubs and committees, planning future course of actions, academic or just otherwise.
If anyone would ask us to summarize we would say IIM Kashipur is one blissful place. Despite having a temporary campus, students utilize the resources in the best possible ways: Their campus is home and everyone their family. With small number of strength, IIM Kashipur is full of opportunities and prospective of one great IIM Life at Campus.

Hi What are the chances of the convert of a GEM waitlisted at 2354 for IIM Kashipur, 1902 IIM Raipur, and 792 IIM Vizag?
Getting shortlisted depends on your CAT percentile, WAT and personal interview. If you have a good record of academics then that would be a plus point. All these factors will help you in the IIMs' selection.
Looking at your factors, honestly, the chances exist but less. There are many candidates that don't opt for admissions or chose some other institutions, in that case your chances will increase automatically.
