    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."

    I couldn't even think myself indulging in a profound environment where each day shines for students to do something better. In an ongoing path, Thames brings an enormous opportunity reflecting the through art which is a way of life itself. Knowing every individual is different by attitude and unique by nature.

    While my never planned journey of stepping into Thames Theatre Club (TTC) was surreal. It is undoubtedly true that theatre was more then just an act. My perception of theatre completely changed, when I found myself indulging in art and emotions. Nevertheless, having privilege to acknowledge myself as cordinator of TTC was whole different step to carry forward. With TTC, performing various short plays and production okay while connecting with audiences gives thrill. The people I've come across gives me the different sense of reality to look beyond.

    Sharing the victory of our own Theatre Club by bagging the 1st position in Inter-College Drama Competition which was organized by Lions and Leo Club of Kathmandu Chabahil City. It was such a honour to be part of the great victory where our preservence, 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.

    The saying 'you never know until you try.' That's exactly what I can sum up real ting to art and culture Thames holds. Because at Thames, students dance to their hearts out, feel the music and fuel the soul. If me, you and every other student would live without creating a boundaries for themselves and start indulging the through the art that Thames offer, then how strongly and independently each and every student would graduate.

    I’ve always been someone who likes to collect experience from everything as much as possible. Before I joined Thames I wanted to make sure that I bring out the best in me and gave myself this 4-year time period to groom and come out as a better and a responsible person.

    Well actually doing what I said would have been difficult if I didn’t join Thames International College. I somehow believe that Thames giving their students every opportunity to standout and evolve as a person is one of the main reason for my personal growth and development. If I have to be honest, the main reason why I joined Thames is because of its limitless exposure and opportunities. When I was a freshman, I was so enthusiastic and pumped up. I literally volunteered to be part of everything I found interesting. I became general member of three structured clubs as well as the other unstructured clubs. Since I took the responsibility by myself I had to complete my task, the pressure was on but I didn’t retreat. I gave my shot and became one of the member of yearbook team and even participated in different sessions and programs. Right now I’m an official member of student council as a secretary, so obviously I have a certain responsibility but I’m learning new things everyday so it’s a win-win situation. But it’s very important to maintain that balance between your academic and your extra-curriculum. We have our own unique mission in life that only we can do, so make the best out of it.

    My childhood was never smooth. I changed school continuously and each time my parents had to sign a contract that stated that the school will not be responsible if I had any seizures or falls. I was carefree when I was with my friends but was always anxious with strangers. I was differently abled since birth and I always felt incomplete inside my heart. After I completed my higher secondary degree, I started sorting out the colleges for my further study. As I was actively involved in a social organization as a volunteer, I was keen on becoming a social worker in the future. I had a few colleges shortlisted, but when I came to Thames College for my interview I was mesmerized by the way the panel team encouraged, motivated and offered me the scholarship. I was not expecting that at all. This is one of the proudest moments of my life. Being differently abled, I have some disadvantages. I need some moment before I can 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.

    My name is Sangit Nepal, I am currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree in BBA at Thames International College and I am also the coordinator of Thames Dance Club (TDC) along with my other fellow coordinators. Thames Dance Club (TDC) is an interest based club which operates to provide platform for students to showcase their enthusiasm and passion towards dancing and connect students with mutual interests. Basically the club takes part in different college events and also works with other organizations.

    When I heard that I was appointed as one of the coordinators of Thames Dance Club for the upcoming year, I felt very proud of myself for being able to achieve something through my dedication. Similarly, I felt a lot of responsibility and expectations being handed to me. Through the club I am still learning teamwork and the significance of being a good leader.

    Apart from TDC, I am actively working as the Vice-President of Rotaract Club of Thames International College. Being a rotaractor, I am able to polish my skills and have network building with rotaractors across the country.

    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 transition is certainly huge, specifically in regards to coursework which is significantly harder than high school course but I’ve managed to balance it out till now and have been able to dedicate myself to all the courses. This semester offered me new skills and knowledge in many ways. The course taught me about online research and the proper way of writing a paper and has offered me the knowledge of organizing myself in a better way for studying. And punctuality has definitely been an added component in my regular routine.

    In addition, athletics has always been a very big part of my life and that is why I got engaged in playing basketball at Thames. Getting in the court at mid-day and engaging myself in some sport activity is something that I absolutely love about my campus life here. Basketball at Thames has really helped me learn the interpersonal and social communication skills I use today. I made a lot of good friends through basketball; whether they were on my team, the opposing team or just fans in the crowd who admired my play. Achieving first position in basketball organized by Rotaract club of Thames this semester was the most memorable and competitive game I have played. “No Dream is Too Big”. The odds of a high school player making it to the “next level” to play as a undergrad basketball is slim. But all thanks to my teammates, our dedication and hard work for the game paid off well. I wish to focus on game more on my upcoming semester and make it up to college team.

    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.

    I was a shy, nerdy guy who liked books. The college was rife with vibrant extroverts who stayed at college even after classes. They scared me at first. After engaging in a few programs from Studnet Council(SCOTIC), I found them a little less scary.

    SCOTIC was about the students. Surprisingly, “Go home” was not the answer to solving the students’ problems. Therefore, I had to stay at college to find the answers in the events. For every event, we planned months ahead, finding sponsors, performers, practicing, decorating on holidays. The responsibilities of handling a huge budget and team were not easy. Internal conflict among quarreling members had to be sorted. Additional responsibilities of fickle members need to be fulfilled. After all this, things go wrong on the day of the event. Someone forgets an essential item, the performers drop out, people want to perform. You have to reschedule performances without slowing the beat of the event.

    Then, the event goes on. Everyone is enjoying while you’re exhausted backstage wondering how everything eventually worked out. Afterward, the appreciation of teachers and friends fill you with a sense of growth and accomplishment. It feels scary because you start staying at college after classes planning the next events to come.
