Why I Chose GCU
Oormila S Pillai
As a teenager, who shifted to a different state to pursue her higher studies I had no idea what was waiting ahead of me in Garden City College. I joined GCC in 2010 and it was truly a global experience. I met people from different countries and of different culture. One of the major highlight for me was our libraries apart from the dreamy campus and awesome cafes. Those two libraries were built and arranged with much consideration and analysis. Although I understood that little late, to be precise once I got to experience the student life again. Our department had a compact and compassionate team. The faculty members of our department were always friendly and supportive. They found time to make sure that we were having a good time during the college days, always reminded us the industry is going to be different so consider every small opportunity and give our best. The department staffs were also friendly and helpful, especially during the final days of the semesters. Every month we had a new event and which department would be called to participate, decorate and arrange everything -FAD! Each events and its preparations were a different learning experience altogether, which almost every fashion student would agree. Being part of Gardenia and other inter and intra college festivals made the days more memorable. The chaos before every event and the sleepless nights before submissions were never the ones I imagined I would miss. Thank you all for making my days memorable.
“Two roads diverged in my life and, I choose the one with less traveled by and that has change my life.” We were a part of something unprecedented, something unheard of, something new. We overcame Challenges, faced the ruthless world, learned , unlearned, relearned and in the process, made memories of a lifetime. GCU will always be another home for us. As we gracefully culminate the three years spent here, it feels humbling to be a part of the history. I am sure the upcoming batches of GCU will continue the rich legacy and strive to make us proud. Our college is well equipped with facilities that brings out the best in us. The homely environment, and dedicating teachers makes the B.SC Fashion and Apparel Design more thrilled, challenging and passionate to learn something new always. The three years of mine in GCU was always the best years of my life.
I am honoured to have got the opportunity to complete my graduation from GCU, Bangalore that gave me the necessary exposure to face the outside world with confidence and grace. The 3 years of academic perseverance in this incredulous institute of learning has paved my way to an excellent career in fashion designing nd brilliant success in my future undertakings. Today I owe all my success and happiness to the loving guidance and untiring efforts of the amazing faculties of fashion designing at GCU. The unconditional support and the impressive personality of His Excellency Dr Joseph VG the Chancellor of GCU who instilled in us human values and the emphasis on Life require special mention.

I cherished every moment spent at this institution. Every teaching and non-teaching member was very friendly and cooperative. The faculty team of Fashion Department always encouraged and supported me through thick and thin. They always motivated me to expand my interest in learning and nurtured my skills. I am proud to be an alumna of this institution. I am proud to be known as a Gardenian.
My time in college has enriched my life in many ways. It has provided me with the necessary tools to enhance my skills, celebrating different culture has taught me valuable knowledge about this diverse world and people and concepts in general. When I came to Garden City, I was a little girl whose dream was to become a fashion designer. Garden City helped me a lot in fulfilling this dream of mine. Whatever I can do well in my career today, it is because of Garden City College. I am most grateful to our Chancellor Sir Dr. Joseph VG Because he never stopped us from giving exams due to financial issues and he always used to say that you do the exam then you should go ahead in your career, fees are secondary before is your studies, Doing this thing is a very big thing for any institute practically And this proves that our Chancellor Sir Dr. Joseph VG, is a very great human being. His support has made me so much ahead in life today. Thank You Garden City University.

The thing I liked the most about GCC is it’s diversity towards culture and equality towards its students. I learnt a lot not just related to my degree but also some basic values of life in most fascinating way, made lots of friends and unforgettable memories with my fashion department and teaching faculty made it more easier to learn each and every thing in a new and interesting way.
