Those four years of my life have been the most memorable and gave me those moments that will be cherished forever. Kalasalingam University gave me the best of education, best of friends and the best of fun. Apart from the eminent faculty, flexible curriculum, the diversity of students in terms of socio-economic background, culture, language and religion gives Kalasalingamites a unique advantage – the ability to thrive in this fast-globalizing economy. Last but not the least, I owe KARE for what I am today and I am happy that I made the right decision to join KARE.
