"I was born and brought up in Rajasthan. I got to know about Karunya University through my school senior who studied here. Being fully brought up in north, initially I was homesick and had some adjustment issues. I always used to wonder what plans God had for me bringing me here when I used to hear the verse, “ For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord , plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future“. And today I stand as a testimony for this. Karunya University has been a changing point in my life. All through my school days I was an average student acquiring 60 to 75 percent in academics. Then I landed up in choosing ECE as my stream because of my parents’ suggestion. I even had second thoughts for changing my department in first year because I felt it was very hard for me to study it. But with God’s blessing and constant help and encouragement of my department faculties I started developing interest and was able to get 8+ CGPA in all through my semesters . My only wish was to get one placement offer before passing out and by God’s grace I have been blessed with placement offers in 5 companies: KPIT, Wipro , Infosys , CTS and Accenture. God has blessed me a lot and choosing ECE in Karunya University has turned to be a best decision of my life. It has provided me with a good academic training, four years of pleasant stay and moreover with helping and caring faculty and friends. " - Ms. BEBIT MATHEWS
