AU V-C flays corporate colleges

VISAKHAPATNAM: The Department of Psychology, Andhra University, and Rehalki, an organisation engaged in the promotion of effective learning, organised a seminar on success motivation for SSC and Intermediate students here at AU Assembly hall on Wednesday.

Delivering the keynote address the Vice-Chancellor of AU L. Vengopala Reddy said SSC and Intermediate are the crucial and formative years for the students, and during those years they should realise their inherent strengths and concentrate in developing them.

He criticised the corporate colleges for inculcating the EAMCET culture to serve their selfish goals.

“Heavens will not crash if you do not get engineering or a medicine seat. There are more opportunities apart from them,” he advised the students.

Principal of AU College of Engineering Allam Appa Rao said securing high marks cannot be termed as success, but achieving the set goals in life can be related to success.

Principal of GITAM College of Management Studies K. Siva Rama Krishna in his address asked the students to convert the inherent potential to ability through the process of education.

Director of Academic Staff College of AU K. Ravi, urged the students to dream big and stay focused to achieve the dream.

The programme was coordinated by the honorary director of Rehalki and professor Department of Psychology, AU V. Harilakshmi.
