Every single day, at my hostel room 305, I wake up and close my eyes and tell myself,”I’m gonna be at least one percent better than who I was yesterday.” I put on my workout clothes, lace up my shoes and get ready to go to Kraft gym. I am a part time coach at Kraft and I help people with their fitness goals. After I coach people, I get my workout done and head straight over to Vallalar maiyam and have a large, sumptuous meal there! What’s better than a hot, Indian meal that feels close to home, right? I believe every person could be wholesome, when they treat everything as a skill. That’s the reason I believe, we wear different caps at different times. After my morning fitness ritual, I put on my President of the Department of CSE cap and head right away to the department.My department association team and I usually discuss about what we could do for the department at EAST KORE, CCD and KORE. Everywhere you look inside KCT, there’s a punchline that says, “Character is life.” I used to wonder in my first year of college is that all life is about? Now, in my final year of college I do realise what I am today was because of KCT and importantly the people behind KCT. Weekends call for movie nights at our hostel room. Me and my roomies usually munch on Kadalai urundais from K’s Cafe at M-Gateway while we watch a movie. There’s nothing that comes close to a Kadalai urundai and movie combo to us!

KCT is a place of umpteen opportunities. It gives the students an array of clubs to choose from apart from academics. I was a campus resident and this made it is very easy for me to go about with these club activities and take an active part in them, as they take place mostly after college hours. Life at KCT is almost a parallel culture, an encounter that takes you out of your comfort zone and exposes you to several experiences worth your time and energy. It is a place of learning, friendship, bonding, sacrifice, and enjoyment. It is a hospitable environment. There are students from every part of Tamil Nadu, and also from other states which makes this place a plethora of colour, customs, and habits. People here instantly bond over and learn each other’s way of life. And to top it all, being in the hostel has helped me polish my management skills, be it time, money or relationship. It gives me an upper hand being in the hostel when it comes to academics, I have ready access to all the facilities like library and labs. On the whole, it is a home away from home.
