B S Ranjan shared his opinion and his future aim in life.

He also added that he has to do well in his future. He praised the institution and innovative ideas of the Chairman.
Prof. K Byrappa, Vice-Chancellor of Mangalore University, gave his presidential speech. “It’s a great achievement since it is impossible to obtain full marks. Students have the gift of grasping subjects which makes them achieve good marks. This made history. To succeed in life, one should have a goal and work hard to achieve it. Teacher’s play a very important role in moulding students, he said, advising the faculty to motivate students to think creatively. Students should also have the curiosity to learn new things, he added.
