If someone told me 3 years back that I had to organize events and represent the college as the Academic Secretary and also be the topper to the college, I would probably call them crazy. But tell me the same thing now and I can proudly say that I have achieved it all. Oxford College has helped me evolve as a person in ways i cant possibly imagine. It has helped me
discover my potentials and do something way out of my comfort zone. It has made me realize that good things only come by hard work and faith in oneself. Truly a life changing and a memorable experience it has been!!!

"The one liner of Oxford College is Empowering Nation, the strength and power of a nation lies in its youth. The one quality of this college that sets it apart from other colleges is it teaches its students to be self reliant. Specially the BCA section has carved a niche for itself and is in a league of its own. Backed by a dynamic young and resourceful HOD Mr. Ramamurti, Sky is the limit to the students."
