What Our Alumni Speak …
I remember the first day I randomly walked into NIST to get the form for entrance test even though I had been selected for admission at St. Xavier’s College, as the turning point of my life. Those two years spent with wonderful friends and inspiring teachers built me the strong foundation of my professional achievements today.
My advice to all of my younger, brother and sister students, is to be punctual, on time, hard-working, diligent, focused, disciplined and to build a close rapport with your seniors in order to ensure your life, career, goals are on track. Do not forget your mother institution NSS, for the contributions made, to shape your future. God bless us.
These days, whenever I pass through Lainchour, it strikes a chord deep in my heart, remembering the times, growing up and studying at NSS. I am indebted to my teachers and staff at NSS for providing the conducive academic atmosphere for us aspiring students.
What I miss the most, of my high school days at NSS is the cohort of close friends and associates. Each and everyone one of us have gone on in our lives and are now established professionals in different walks of life, but I am sure all of us will agree when I say that, NSS has contributed majorly in shaping us into who we are today. I could never thank enough, all of my mentors and friends at NSS for the support and care, I was provided.
