I am proud to say that I belong to this wonderful temple of knowledge: Vels Institute of Science and Technology (VISTAS), Chennai. I was highly elated when I got the admission in Bachelor of Science-Physics here. As I had always wished to graduate from a place that has cooperative professors, a state of the art infrastructure, huge library resources, laboratories pertaining to latest technologies and clean and vast campus with a large canteen that serves vey hygienic food. My college is the blend of all these. I’m very thankful to my college because only through VELS placement cell I got the wonderful opportunity to work with Visionary RCM Company as a junior executive medical coder. I’m very happy to work with such a surrounding. I’m very thankful for everything which my College has given me.
