The day I entered the campus as a fresher, I knew that BITS Pilani would be the turning point in my life. A perfect blend of academics with co-curricular activities made my university experience worthwhile. Along the way, leading the student council and being a part of various clubs and divisions taught me things that I could never learn in the four walls of the classroom.”
