The year 2020 was not all gloomy and locked-down; it had several refreshing moments too. I am happy to share with you all one such beautiful moment for Commits.
Since its inception in 2001, Commits has been a ‘campus-less’ college housed in a single building, first on Tavarekere Main Road (2001-10), and then at HSR Layout 19th Main Road (2010-20). Several batches of students have cherished memories of both these places, especially its hangouts, where they have spent their free time eating, sipping and smoking (not necessarily in that order).
In its 20th year Commits has moved into a new home, a 3-acre green campus with separate office, academic and hostel blocks, an outdoor sports field and a mini fruit garden! It is a self-sufficient space that can calm the mind and foster creativity, where the students can spend their hours studying, exploring, playing and living amidst nature, absorbing its beauty, besides organising seminars, workshops, inter-collegiate competitions, fests, and lots of creative student activities …
There will be, of course, no compromise on the professionals coming to teach, or the quality of academics, and the discipline that is expected from the students.
For the convenience of the students, this will be a fully residential campus, where the students will be encouraged to use eco-friendly practices (like water recycling, cycling to college and zero-plastic use). The campus will be ‘owned’ by the students who will decide on the best practices to make it a beautiful living experience during their two years, and for the future batches. Of course Bangalore students can choose to travel from home or opt to stay on campus.
This is the address and location on Google Maps … 3M95+R3 Bengaluru, Karnataka … which is just off Hennur Main Road, 6 km from the Manyata Tech Park-Outer Ring Road junction. The location has plenty of eateries, hangouts and shopping complexes within a 3 km radius, and is closer to M G Road/Commercial Street (13 km), Bangalore International Airport (24 km), and K R Puram Railway Station (13 km). Regular BMTC services are available to the area, which will improve once the pandemic situation eases.
Work is presently going on to fine-tune the facilities so that the campus is ready to welcome the students in the new academic year.
I look forward to seeing you all soon in the new campus for a new experience.
