Words of trust
“‘Encouraging us to be more independent and the freedom to think and act on our own’. This, I would say, is the best thing I felt about AURORA – something that you get only in handpicked colleges in the city. Here, our interests are given both ; due respect and priority. Let it be academics or sports or art or music or any other thing. The point is to do what we like and to give our best to it. The Best part of the institution is that it does not need any publicity and the students themselves become the Brand Ambassadors for their life time”

It is a place where one can find unique blend of discipline and empathy and also the same are inculcated in the students right from the onset of the course.
