    Thames has been creating opportunities for learning beyond regular classroom. Being an athlete at Thames College has shaped my college experience in ways I never expected, and I am incredibly thankful for this learning experience. Initially, I faced some challenges in balancing my academics and athletic career however, the unique learning environment at Thames has guided me to take both my academics and athletic career hand in hand. Being able to play sports both in and out of college has been a voice to a socially awkward person like me. Looking back at the highlights of my college life, I was able to form a women’s basketball team at college and we were able to win several basketball tournaments. I was continuously challenged to play hard, work in a team, and always strive towards growth. If you want to come to a college where you will grow exponentially as an individual, as a student, as a leader, and as an athlete (and yes, you can do it all), then Thames is entirely worth your consideration."

    Thames International College brings an enormous opportunity of reflecting through art, which is a way of life itself. My decision of stepping into Thames Theatre Club (TTC) was completely unplanned. Once I finally got affiliated in the club and found myself indulging myself in arts and emotions, it changed my perception of theatre completely. Nevertheless, the privilege of acknowledging myself as the coordinator of TTC was an entire different step to carry forward. With TTC, I got the opportunity to perform various short plays, production and got to connect with audiences. Moreover bagging first position in Inter-College Drama Competition was surreal. It was such an honor to be part of an enormous victory where our perseverance and hard work radiated on the stage. What a delightful happiness to the team, to the club and to the college itself. Perhaps, the fact that it was a TEAM that succeeded.

    'You never know until you try'; which is exactly what Thames holds in regards to art and culture. 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 really become strong and independent graduates.

    I have always been someone who likes to collect experiences from everything as much as possible. Before joining Thames, I wanted to bring out the best in me and gave myself this 4-year time period to groom and come out as a responsible professional and personal individual.

    Had I not joined Thames, doing what I had aimed would have been difficult. I believe that Thames has given students every opportunity to standout and evolve as an entity. This has been one of the main reasons for my personal growth and development. To be honest, the main reason why I joined Thames was because of its boundless exposure and opportunities. Initially as a freshman, I was very enthusiastic so I volunteered to be part of everything I found interesting. I became the general member of three structured clubs as well as other unstructured clubs. The pressure to complete the tasks was persistent but I don’t regret any bit of it. I gave it a shot and became one of the members of the yearbook team. I participated in different sessions and programs as well. Currently, I’m an official member of the student council as a secretary and I’m learning new things every day. We have our own unique mission in life that only we can do, so we need to make the best out of it.

    From changing different schools to my parents signing agreements which stated the schools will not be held responsible in case of accidents, I had always been carefree when I was with my friends but anxious with strangers. I was differently abled since birth and I always felt incomplete inside my heart.

    After completing my higher secondary degree, I started sorting out colleges for further studies. Since I was actively involved in a social organization as a volunteer, I was keen on becoming a social worker. I shortlisted a few colleges, but when I came to Thames College for my interview I was fascinated by the way the panel team motivated me and offered me a scholarship which was very encouraging. I was not expecting that at all. This is one of the proudest moments of my life. Some disadvantages surrounded by being differently abled was for instance taking some moment before I speak. The teachers and my friends started to understand this weakness, were patient and made me comfortable allowing me to speak whenever I can. Thames College has provided me a comfortable study environment and motivated me to continuously move forward in my path of becoming a successful social worker.

    Thames has a distinct academic curriculum unlike other institutions in Kathmandu. The institution not only focuses on academia, but also provides exploratory subjects consisting of drama, art, foreign language, technology, field trips et al. Therefore, apart from academics, I have a rich variety of related arts offerings to choose from. 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 french class. It was interesting to see and be a part of the culture which gave me a new perspective.

    As every first year student, I was quite nervous about this transition into a new academic life. The transition is certainly huge, specifically in regards to the coursework which is comparatively difficult than that of high school. Till date I’ve managed to balance and have been able to keep myself dedicated to the courses. The courses have offered me with new skills and knowledge in many ways. The courses have taught me about online research and proper ways of writing a paper. Along the way I have learnt the significance of punctuality and enhanced my organizational skills for studying.

    Additionally, athletics has always been a very big part of my life which led me to getting engaged in playing basketball at Thames. Having the opportunity to engage in basketball or any other sport related activities is something that I absolutely love about my college life here. Basketball at Thames has really helped me improve interpersonal and social communication skills that I apply at present. I made a lot of good friends through basketball; whether they were on my team, the opposing team or just admirers in the crowd. Bagging first position in basketball competition organized by the Rotaract club of Thames this semester was the most memorable and competitive game I have played. “No Dream is Too Big” and the odds of a high school player making it to the “next level” to play as an undergrad basketball player is thin. But all thanks to my teammates, our dedication and hard work paid off well. I aim to make it to the college basketball team in the coming the year.

    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 of college life here, I believe I have participated in almost all of the events as all of these events were fun to participate in. 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 Kriye team through which I was able to showcase the creative side in me and was able to conduct events which focused mainly on bringing the creative and artistic side of the students I am glad that I got the opportunity to choreograph “Sanskriti :the Fashion show” which was a completely different experience for me and me and my team were able to put on a great show In addition to my student life experiences here, I also got to work as an intern in college which was a great experience for me as I got to learn so much.

    All these moments and experiences spent along with my beloved friends here Is something I will cherish forever. 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 because I was doubtful of the colleges here. After studying A-Levels, I had gotten used to this flexibility of sorts when it came to education and extracurriculars. And Thames offered me a similar academic environment with a course of international standards that gave me the space to grow and adapt at my own pace. All of my teachers and the management itself have been extremely supportive, engaging, and eager to provide any assistance. I also became the coordinator of the Kriye Team during the first semester and got involved in organizing different events such as the Christmas Bazaar and Rose Day with a lot of help from my team members, who are now also some of my closest friends. 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.

    When I joined Thames I was a shy, nerdy guy who lived mostly in books in my room. I didn't know much about life outside the classroom. The college was rife with vibrant extroverts who stayed at college even after classes. They scared me. But in the latter phase, engaging in programs from the Student Council of Thames International College (SCOTIC) made me see it differently. SCOTIC was about enriching student life experiences. Surprisingly, “Going home” wasn't the way to enrich life. To learn, I begrudgingly started staying after classes to work on events which helped enrich student life. For every event, we would plan months ahead, find sponsors, performers, practice and decorate on holidays. The responsibilities of handling a huge budget and team was definitely not easy. Then, the event commences. Everyone is celebrating and you’re backstage, exhausted. The crowd, the cheer, the glee creates an ambience of joy. Afterwards, you're appreciated by teachers and friends. Your team, despite its ups and down, made it.
