Rishi Nagar, B.Pharm + MBA 3rd year
Good evening to all the dignitaries & students present here. I RISHI NAGAR on the behalf of SPTM am thankful that we’ve got the director from the pharmaceutical field.
Our experience from 1st year to 3rd year is still enduring as a nice journey. From new friends to new field, it can be determined that many of the things were changed as we were introduced to soft skills which have enhanced our communication skills. From pharmaceutical chemistry to pharmaceutics, students were found to have an up gradation in their knowledge.
The environment which is created by our faculties & the lab staff is found to be an excellent part of our experience.
Overall development is one of the best things we can have in this campus. From sports to cultural activities, we have a great platform to learn & emerge as a good human being.
Sir we expect that under your guidance, more support will be given to academics along with cultural & co-curricular activities so that we can get the chance to make you feel proud.

Sir we are privileged to be under your guidance to take our campus to laurels. We would love to have maximum exposure to various intercollegiate events taking place.

Shambhavi Shahi, B.Pharm + MBA 2nd year
I, Shambhavi Shahi from the second year would like to take this opportunity to say a few words about our director sir who actually needs no formal introduction to our SPTM family.
It is our privilege to have you as our director sir. Since our interaction with sir has been limited due to his busy schedule in Mumbai, we are looking forward to better interaction here in the campus. We would like to have his guidance in various fields as he has a very positive experience of handling both the campuses well.
We wish that with your presence a climate of enthusiasm will be maintained. As we know to carry forward things well in a positive way is not the job of a single person we wish to work in co-operation to solve the problems for a better campus life. We congratulate you sir for making an excellent decision of being a part of the campus and we hope to develop a lot under your guidance.
Since you are a great personality we wish to focus on your ideas provided to us and learn as much as possible in our quest for knowledge.
