Lovely Professional University organized its 7th 'University Honour Ceremony', today, to honour its meritorious & talented students. Director General of Police, Government of Punjab, Suresh Arora IPS honoured 2000 LPU students. Illustrious students were awarded with prize money of Rs 20 Lakh along with University Rolls of Honour. The ceremony is held annually to recognize students’ achievements in the fields of research, academics, sports, placements, cultural activities & community services. The parents of the students from different states of India and other countries too witnessed the honouring ceremony of their wards. Lovely Group Chairman Mr Ramesh Mittal, LPU Chancellor Mr Ashok Mittal & Pro Chancellor Mrs Rashmi Mittal welcomed the elite guest.
Sharing his personal life and wide experiences, DGP Arora advised students: “In order to be successful never leave hard-work aside, and never be on the wrong side of the Law. Keep this deep seated in your mind that ultimately hard work is going to pay. When I see your faces, I recall my own youthful days and gather that youth has its own common mind set-up. But I am sure that many of you will be certainly going to do differently and carve a strong place in the society. This is a beginning for you in the right direction, do whatever you like but be always on the track of studies. I also want to lay stress on the stark reality that there is no elevator to success; one has to take a stair. On times there can be failures or depressions; however, the strongest and successful persons are those who do not give up when they lose.” Describing himself as a firm believer in service concept, the top-ranked officer was benevolent enough to share his personal email account with LPU students for any kind of support, service or advice as per needs.
Prior to this, LPU Chancellor accorded a warm welcome to the DGP Arora by quoting him as “a Saint in Uniform”, who is always up to his commitments, leadership and positive attitude lying deep seated within him. Congratulating students & their parents, Chancellor Mr Mittal said: "Every year our students strive in outstanding manner to bring more and more laurels to the university. This year achievers have risen to a massive number of 2000. I am happy to share that LPU students are myth breakers & multi-talented under varied exposure provided to them by their teachers and mentors. It is usually said that sports and cultural activities’ students do not prove good in academics. LPU students have proved this wrong by excelling in such fields with 9+ CGPA. Moreover most of them belong to hard professional programs like engineering, pharmacy, biosciences rather than performing or fine arts. At times an LPU student can be a perfect classical dancer, athlete, researcher, innovator or more as per the needs. They are not only imparted world class education but are also shaped into holistic human beings.” Mr Mittal was also happy to express that students’ attainments are in a way perfect branding of the University for others to observe and applaud.
One of the awarded students Shaista Afzal Majeedi (B.Sc Economics), who has 10 CGPA shared: “LPU has transformed me into a hard working scholar to get A+ grade in all the courses.” Similarly, Nidhi Nayan, who participated in Republic Day Parade in New Delhi this year under community services, was very humble in accepting that whatever she is today is only due to the teachings received at the university. Researcher Kunal Adhikari, who is the best Odissi dancer also shared that his parents’ decision to get him enrolled at LPU has proved out as the supreme decision. Similar are the versions of other parents who joined the ceremony from far-off places to see their highly placed sons and daughters receive their honour. Parents felt grateful to university for developing personality of their wards through time to time encouragements.
