The excitement rate is high at Apeejay Institute of Mass Communication (AIMC) as students begin returning to the campus after a break of more than one year from offline classes, owing to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The AIMC campus has been brimming with energy as students meet their friends, batchmates and faculty in-person after a prolonged interval.

“We have been attending online classes which were totally different compared to our visit to the campus,” said Diksha Rathore, one of the students.

Another student, Shradha Tiwari said, “I will now be able to meet the faces that I have been seeing online so far in person. I am really very happy to come back for offline classes.”


With enthusiasm palpable on her face, Sushmita Debasish Roy, who travelled back from her hometown, Ranchi, said, “After a long time, the classes will now be conducted in offline mode. We will learn so many new things. We will also be able to attend our practical classes and work on our projects like old times.”

The AIMC has made arrangements in tune with the Covid-19 precautionary guidelines to welcome the students. Students’ body temperature is recorded with thermal scanners before letting them into the institute premises.

“During the lockdown period, all the classes and training happened virtually. It also gave us a lot of learning about how a hybrid kind of a class can be conducted. However, we know that physical classes and training is a must for mass communication students. I am happy that the situation is heading towards normalisation and we are able to conduct classes in a normalised manner while maintaining the Covid-19 protocols. The response we have got from our students is tremendous. What we figured is that they are now much more focused as far as their careers are concerned. They have become more interactive and this is giving us a hope that this lot will become better professionals in the times to come.”
