KATHMANDU: The Kathmandu College of Management (KCM) successfully completed a two-day ‘KCM Open House’ at its Gwarko premises on June 27-28 for +2 and equivalent students and their guardians.
Realising the importance of ‘Open House’ — an experience which is far more engaging than just looking at the college prospectus, brochures and websites — the event was organised to allow the students to make the right choice for themselves at an important crossroads of their lives.
The visiting students and guardians were led on a guided tour, where the major milestones of the college since its inception were explained. An experience sharing session with the present students and alumni was also conducted.
The seven clubs of the college under the umbrella of the Student Council put up exciting activities for the attendees. The Career Club carried out a CV writing session. Social Welfare Club conducted a discussion forum on the Yulin festival and the effectiveness of funds being channelised through Prime Minister’s Disaster Relief Fund. The IT club entertained the visitors with Xbox and Fifa games while Publication Club put up pictures of events and activities that have happened at KCM. Likewise, the Sports Club had a three-point shootout game and Arts Club delighted the crowd with some acoustic numbers from the colleges fraternity and gave opportunities for interested visitors to sing and perform as well.
Serene Singh, an attendee, said the Open House was helpful for her. “It was a great experience knowing about the college — from its infrastructure to timeline to how classes are conducted — as well as getting opportunity to talk to the present students and alumni. After today, I’ve felt a connection with the college. Attending the Open House has given me a feeling that I will fit in with the culture and student body. I feel like studying at KCM,” Singh mentioned.
