Student life at Thames
Thames provides a platform for students to come and start up programs that spark their interest. Whether it is managing a student club, bringing in co-curricular, extracurricular activities, recreational programs, or initiating a social project, the Office of Student Affairs ensures that students’ ideas are met with consideration.
There are a number of student clubs and organizations to get involved in a group that matches your area of interest. Student life at Thames gives ample opportunities to enhance your leadership abilities with a sense of civic engagement. All aspects of personality development are given priority whether it is a critical thinking class or a sports session.
Thames offers opportunities for learning beyond the regular classroom, which has definitely shaped my learning experience as an athlete in a way I never expected. Initially I had difficulties balancing my athletic career and studies but the unique learning environment of college guided me to take forward both aspects hand in hand. One of the main highlights of my college life was being able to form a women's basketball team and winning several tournaments. If you want an environment where you can grow exponentially in various aspects of your life then Thames is totally worth your consideration.

Thames brings an enormous opportunity of reflecting through art and my decision to step into Thames Theatre Club (TTC) completely changed my perception of theatre. I got the privilege to acknowledge myself as coordinator of TTC and an opportunity to perform various short plays and productions through the team. More to this, sharing the victory of our own Theatre Club by bagging the first position in Inter-College Drama Competition was surreal. The saying 'you never know until you try’ is exactly what I can sum up relating to art and culture Thames holds. Because at Thames, students dance their hearts out and feel the music that fuels the soul. If we were to live without creating boundaries for ourselves and start indulging in various art platforms that Thames offers, each one of us would become strong and independent graduates.
I have always been someone who likes to collect experience from everything as much as possible. I believe that Thames has given their students every opportunity to stand out and evolve as a person which was one of the main reasons why I joined Thames. I became part of everything I found interesting and joined three structured clubs along with other unstructured clubs as a general member. As I took responsibilities by myself the pressure of completing it was on but I didn’t regret any bits of it. I gave my shot and became one of the members of the yearbook team. Right now I’m an official member of the student council as President and I’m learning new things every day. We have our own unique mission in life that only we can do, so make the best out of it.
Being a differently abled person, my early days were never easy from changing schools to being nervous in front of strangers. Because of the situations that I encountered, I always felt incomplete inside my heart. As I was sorting out the colleges offering social work, I came across Thames and I was mesmerized by the way the team encouraged me and on top of that, offered me with the scholarship. This was one of the proudest moments of my life. My teachers and friends at Thames embraced me for who I am and gave me with a welcoming environment where I can move forward in my path to become a successful social worker.
Thames as an institution not only focuses on academia but also provides exploratory subjects consisting of drama, art, foreign language, technology, field trips et al. My involvement in the theatre club and the college magazine editorial team has prepared me to work as a team whereby I can foster my creativity and take in interesting perspectives. It has also helped me build my communication skills for my journalism major and apply that knowledge to future endeavors. The other exploratory opportunity that I got here is my trip to France for an intercultural experience. We visited Montpellier and Paris where we were enrolled in a French class. It was interesting to see and be a part of the culture which gave me a new perspective.
Upon officially beginning my first semester at Thames, I was quite nervous as every first year student about this transition to a new academic life. The course taught me about online research and the proper way of writing a paper. In addition, athletics has always been a very big part of my life and I got engaged in playing basketball at Thames. Engaging in sport activity is something that I absolutely love about my campus life and it has really helped me learn interpersonal and social communication skills. I made a lot of good friends through basketball; whether they were on my team, the opposing team or fellow friends in the crowd. Achieving first position in basketball organized by Rotaract club of Thames during my first semester was the most memorable and competitive game I have played.
Joining Thames was never a doubt for me as I was drawn to the college environment and the events that were conducted here. During my four years at Thames, I believe I have participated in almost all of the events. My personal favorite has to be diversity day. Tantamount to my interest to meet and connect with people, I joined the Rotaract club and I was able to contribute to many of the club’s events and activities. I was also part of the Kriye team through which I was able to showcase the creative side in me through various events. I am glad that I got the opportunity to choreograph “Sanskriti :the Fashion show” which was a completely different experience for me and my team . In addition, I also got to work as an intern in college which was a great learning experience for me. All and all, I would say that my #lifeatthames was pretty amazing.
Having taken a gap year, I was nervous about starting my undergrad in Nepal. After studying A-Levels, I had gotten used to this flexibility when it came to education and extracurricular. And Thames offered me a similar academic environment with a course of international standards. The college has been doing its best to promote a lot of social causes and inspire students to learn new skills by hosting various workshops. After a semester at Thames, I realize that my potential and interests have been recognized and taken into consideration; I know that I will most certainly experience and enjoy all that the institution has to offer.
