However, with the passage of time I realized that hard work and willingness to strive for excellence helps in embedding challenges into strength. Thus, adapting with campus routine has enabled to turn my so-called Weakness into Strength.” 


Talking on the same qualities, i.e., hard work and stamina, another student Shweta Harinder shared that although she had not encountered many challenges to adapt with campus routine but struggled with delivering her best in practical classes. She found the duration of 4-5 hours of food production classes in lab hectic as the activity demanded sincere efforts, which is depended on student’s stamina and willingness to excel. She sums up that the campus activity prepared her to embrace with ease the long working schedule of the industry.
