I wish them all success in their future participations at national and even International level also. I am happy to share that LPU students are continuously excelling others in each and every field- be it that of research, placements, academics, sports, cultural or any other activity.” Continuing Mr Mittal shared: “At LPU, our students are prepared as all-rounder throughout the year so that they may not lag behind in any way. It is always hard to believe that the students of hard professional programs including pharmacy, mechanical engineering or so can devote their time so judiciously that they come out with brilliant colours in whatever task they undertake. I want to re-affirm them that when success comes, it wants us to be more firm to excel over our present achievements. So, start aiming the next target right from now.”
Some of the winner students Bhavana Pandey of CSE Program, Naina & Rahul of MBA Program shared: “When the name of LPU was announced as overall championship trophy winner, all of us got jubilant and ran dancing and on drum beats to lift the prestigious trophy over our heads. Deep emotions had made us to shed some tears also out of excitement and untold joys. We are thankful to our mentors at LPU who make us to practice throughout the year so that we may always be winners in the fields of our choice. No doubt, it is a tough job to give proper time for academics and cultural activities side by side, but at LPU we are always guided to live up to our passions and excel others.”
