Dear Alumnus,

Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man and character is the test of that manifestation. Education should develop character, mental power, intelligence and inculcate self-confidence with self-reliance.

Swami Vivekananda

I believe that your experiences at Bapuji Dental College and Hospital have encouraged you to develop a critical and inquiring attitude, an appreciation of the interdisciplinary nature of subject areas, acceptance of persons with different backgrounds or values. I am proud of what you have all been accomplishing. Let education and knowledge be your guiding light. Let always your heart show the way.

It is good to seek perfection, but it is better to seek excellence. It is good to work hard, but it is better to work hard smarter. Our college recently witnessed another step toward excellence through the National Assessment and Accreditation Council – Cycle 2 accreditation process. Life is less complicated than it seems. A positive attitude, good deeds, and hard work never bring fatigue, they only bring satisfaction. Hence, my dear Alumni, let your faith be stronger, you can either be proud of graduating from a prestigious institution or you can make your alma mater proud with triumphs!

Along with all the new hopes and promises that the New Year would bring, it also brings us a lot more opportunities to work together. Success comes to those who dedicate everything to their passion in life. To be successful, it is also very important to be humble and never let fame or money travel to your head.

Wish you a very Happy and Successful Year ahead.
