Chairman's Welcome Address To Freshers

Firstly, on behalf of the Students' Council I extend you a hearty welcome to Indian Institute of Science. I must also congratulate you for the excellent choice that you have made; you are now a part of an institution that strives for excellence in all areas of research and teaching; an institution that has been at the forefront of research activity of our nation since its establishment. You have now become a part of us.

 Our institute maintains a climate where every student is encouraged to reach his or her full potential. As Oscar Wilde said, 'Success is a science. If you have the conditions you get the result.' IISc has created the conditions and it is our job to do the rest. It is for the latter that the Students' Council exists. Student Council is an elected body of students to facilitate communication between the students and Administration of the institute, working together with administration to solve the problems related to the students for a better campus life.

Life at IISc is much more than the regular academic activities, and those of Students' Council and Gymkhana. There is a whole city waiting outside to be explored too! Garden City, Bangalore is truly a City of Discovery - a vibrant city in a stunning location with a great deal to offer. This city boasts of at least one location with activities that match the interest of every one of us. A word of caution though, "it is left to us as to how we organize our time here, by maintaining the right balance between academic and your social life." I request everyone here to please keep that in mind.

 I conclude my address with a wish that all of us in this hall succeed in making the best of our stay at IISc. I am looking forward to seeing you all in other Freshers' Welcome programs. All the best!
