Simran Kanoji

My name is Simran Kanojia, and I have absolutely adored my time with mathematics department at Wilson College! I came here for undergraduate and found the academics revolving around Mathematics extremely valuable for developing my career in this domain. I’m grateful to Wilson College’s mathematics department for actively inculcating the knowledge, and that to not just for the course purpose. The department have always been ahead for training us in such a way that we just don’t follow and gain the textual concepts but exposed us to real-life scenarios. We were offered an overall development around aptitude, logical analysis and event management. During the pandemic, the lectures were smooth enough; sufficient notes and study material were provided to us. Besides all of it enough extracurricular activities, programs and events were organised throughout the course to engage us besides studies, build certain skills and improvise learning. The quality from up skilling knowledge to the etiquette of the department’s teaching faculty towards their students have always been exceptional. In short, the relationship between the faculties and students was very cordial, which gave opportunities to excel in the area of interest. I am extremely grateful and extend my thanks to the faculty, the department and Wilson College for being a part of a successful, beautiful journey.

Ballav Nikita Samarjit

A diverse and inclusive campus environment at Wilson has helped me to broaden my perspectives and learn from different viewpoints. The fact that Wilson College is situated right in the middle of Mumbai provides a wealth of possibilities to learn about the local culture. While attending college, one can create cherished memories and develop strong relationships with both teachers and peers, as I did. The variety of extracurricular activities and student organisations, including sports, cultural events, and clubs, provided me with opportunities to develop new skills, make friends, and engage in the community. The participation in the non-cooperative education programme has prepared me for future academic pursuits or career opportunities, and I am glad to have landed at my dream institution for further studies. Last but not the least this college also provided access to resources like career counselling, internships, and networking opportunities, which helped to develop professional skills and connect with potential employers.

Glen Tribhuwan

My name is Glen Tribhuwan. I've completed my bachelor's degree in mathematics from Wilson College, Mumbai. I joined the college in the year 2019, and by 2022 I had graduated. The college journey was a rollercoaster for our batch because of the lockdown in the year 2020. Not even a single year had passed, and we had everything switched to online mode, right from classes to exams, which were conducted on virtual platforms. At first, it was difficult for everyone, but the professors encouraged students and made it possible to learn virtually. The math department's faculty members were friendly and would help students gain more knowledge on the subject. We had a lot of fun, not just with studies but also through college festivals, sports events, and much more. The holistic environment helps students overall development.
