    • When I reflect on my 2 years in BK College, I conclude that the experience not only made me a better Microbiologist, but also prepared me in unpredictable ways for my career. It is difficult to articulate how profoundly my time at the College helped to shape the person I am and the decisions I have made. The professors in the Academy not only gave me an invaluable education, but they also taught me how to seek out knowledge, learn things for myself, and never settle for less than my best effort. Any success that I have from this moment on is undoubtedly because of my time at BK and I will always be proud to have Post graduated from such an amazing Institution.

    • I came to BK College after completing 14 years in a mixed school. The 3 years I spent in BK College formed the foundation for my career and my life. Each teacher gave me different lessons which helped me become a good student, a good employee, a good boss and even a good family member. I got ample opportunities to showcase my talents such in varied events such as Thiruvathira kali, Group dances and Fancy Dress competition. Needless to say I enjoyed my college life to the fullest. I got a Central Government scholarship for 5 years which greatly helped my student life. I got that because of the guidance and unstinting support I got at the college. The teachers guided me regarding the scholarship criteria and the Office staff helped me with the formalities I needed to complete. I will always thankful to God because he showed me the way to the college.  Thankyou

    • I took my graduation on Mathematics from this College during the year 2009-2012. One of the best college for women, running by SABS sisters . I still remember the day I went this college for the first time, the Campus captured my mind because of cleanliness and calm atmosphere . An eco friendly campus which offers 8 UG courses and 6 PG courses. The faculties are down to earth and will consider us as their own kids without any partiality. They also have campus recruitment from companies like WIPRO and from Different banks. This campus has a great impact on my life which helped me to reach the career which I wished for in my life.

    • "Amalagiri College, the campus who moulded the present version of myself. As i was a girl who was born and brought up in a village area, i ended up with an introvert nature. But our faculties closely monitors their students and give the best advices to bring out the best in their students. From a girl who was afraid to face a crowd to the women who won the best Women employee award of southern railway in Indian railways as a representative of my RPF department,I was grately thankful for my campus for that transition. Even though i am working in indian railways which has nothing to do with geology background my passion for my subject never ends it's because of the way my teachers taught it for me. They know the pulse of each and every student. As a part of my curriculum i choose yoga as my add on course. I can say for sure that course helped me to maintain my physical and mental health even though i go through such a hectic daily routine as a part of my job. Hence I,Richu Francis proudly says that I am the daughter of AMALAGIRI CAMPUS."
