After studying for 2 years preparing for JEE I had only one dream getting a good college. After clearing JEE I searched for a colleges that I can add in my preference list. At that time I decided that I would add IIT Mandi higher in my preference order. Actually I wanted that I should get IIT Mandi and the same happened. I was very happy. Main reason why I opted for this college was the location. Actually it was hard to decide whether to take a college situated at Himalayan valley or not. But today I think that it was really good decision.
After the hard work of 2 years getting seat in IIT Mandi was like dream come true. Mandi town is situated in the mountains and is away from the hustle bustle of a big city. Here we have a cool, calm, peaceful and most importantly a pollution free environment.
The first thing that strikes my mind when I think about IIT Mandi is its beautiful location. There can be no better place for those who want to experience the beauty of Nature. When I first joined, I was very confused about what to do really, but the activities here gave me enough opportunities to try my hand at different things. Since IIT Mandi is a small family, there are good chances that your talent will be recognized and duly promoted.
Experiences in IIT Mandi when I came to IIT Mandi. I was a bit disappointed because the campus was not a big one like older IITs and there were no hi-fi labs that one imagines but later I found out that things are much better than they seem to be!
I had never heard about IIT Mandi even after taking the JEE. Being a new college and very far away from my home, Pune, there was obviously a lot of speculation about coming here. After having many discussions with my seniors and parents, I finalized on coming to this alien region. Now that I am here, I feel that it was one hell of a good decision!
It was after the declaration of IIT-JEE results, while I was considering filling in the counselling form, I was really confused about the IIT Mandi, but with consultation from the seniors and surfing the net, i filled the form with a lot of doubts in mind. I am happy as my choice finally paid off.
I was excited when I first arrived here. I expected many things from IIT, expected to meet talented people, expected to improve upon my guitar skills, something that I had failed to do during my JEE prep. but most of all, expected to befriend the talented bunch that would accompany me on this fun-filled ride for the next four years and IIT hasn’t disappointed me in any of those areas.
IIT Mandi is one of the most unique Engineering Institutes in the country. Pursuing a Bachelors degree in Mechanical Engineering I hail from the City of Dreams- 'Mumbai'. It was an absolutely great experience! I had like many of you reading this never experienced the so called 'Hostel life' before.
I remember the day when I filled my JEE counseling form. I was in a lot of confusion. After consulting my seniors & browsing for some time, I came across IIT Mandi. I had a lot of questions in my mind, but after carrying out some research I found it to be very interesting. The location was the first thing that flashed in my mind, it impressed me a lot. After some more research, I thought that it was a good choice and included it in my list.
Two years of slogging, studying, finally got me through the JEE. Qualifying that examination was an ultimate experience.
Getting a low rank was a little disappointing & confusing in the beginning as there were so many different paths that I could choose. Heated discussions
took place between me and my family for almost a month on what to choose
I had "IIT Mandi" placed,9th in my priority list of jee counseling. It was not that I wasn't getting old IITs, basically I just needed a change.
Tired of studying in the plains and the same old boring polluted city life, I opted a new beginning for me.
The day I got a seat in IIT Mandi , I was in a mixed bag of feelings. On one side I was very excited to join a new institution but on the other side I was nervous too
because many close relatives and friends were doubtful about my decision. But, today I can proudly say that I took the right step as I have spent one of the best years
of my life as a Mandiite.
Learning blended with fun is always a welcome experience.My Ist year of college life in IIT Mandi at IITR campus was filled with moments of immense happiness,times of
mighty experience and an everlasting sense of freedom.Frankly, IIT had its special charm.
