It’s either find a way or make one, with this thought I chose to make my way in Pharmacy, where OCP did a splendid job to guide me every time through this way.
As a student of OCP, I found the academic atmosphere conducive to learning which facilitated in identifying my area of interest. From a timid teenager who had worked hard to get into this organization, to a confident professional who can stand tall in this cut throat competitive world, my alma mater ‘OCP’ has truly transformed me. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to our Principal Dr. (Mrs.) Sudha Rathod Ma’am and the entire teaching faculty for beingly supportive and for constantly motivating me throughout this journey.
There is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs; OCP has been that staircase which helped me throughout these 4 years in each and every manner, by shaping my personality, helping me gain more and more knowledge in this profession, helping me excel in this field, and also towards achieving those heights which I never thought of reaching ever.
I earnestly believe that it is the extraordinary people at this organization who make it extraordinary and there is no dearth of extraordinary people at OCP thus making it destined for greatness!

The first thing I want to share is I have become a better person at OCP. The environment here is so inspiring, friendly and motivating that I feel OCP and people associated with it are my family.
I didn’t have many expectations from myself but I learned to have aims and achieve them due to inspiring atmosphere at OCP. The way faculty used to teach and have equal and personal attention on all students made studying a lot interesting and I would like to emphasise all the small to large doubts were cleared by them. They were a lot supportive and would point my weakness in person and tell me where I am lacking and how could I overcome that, this improved me a lot and at the same time I was appreciated for every small thing which I was good at or I did well.
This offline to online transition was very smooth at OCP, Teachers acquired and put extra efforts to maintain the quality of education. So, even during these tough times we were not needed to worry for our academics all the notes and lectures and even extra-curricular activities were take care of with regular assignments that would keep us up to the mark.
I would like to thank every single person associated with OCP because the journey might not have been that beautiful without anyone of them.
The non-teaching staff, lab assistants and attendants were helpful in all possible ways.
The best part of being at OCP was that discipline was given importance by everyone that made things smoother.
I would just tell my juniors that learning is not all about marks or syllabus, it’s beyond that “It is about what you learned and how will you be able to apply the acquired knowledge”.
I would like to thank Principal Mam Dr. (Mrs.) Sudha Rathod for being so supportive and encouraging and at last, I would extend my gratitude to Alumni cell of OCP for giving me this opportunity to share my experience at OCP.

It is rightly said, the investment in knowledge pays the best interest. And I could now happily say that yes I have received the best returns. Choosing pharmacy profession as my career and above all choosing OCP to shape my career was the best thing I can say.
Believing in yourself is the first secret to success. _This is what OCP has given me. I have been associated with OCP for the last five years.I have completed my graduation in OCP with the best experiences so no doubt I chose the same institute for my PG.
Education is not the learning of facts but training of mind to think. OCP has trained me to think out of possibilities, to believe in yourself, to answer all the ‘Whys’.The working environment, support and guidance provided by the institute, teachers and staff has helped me to groom myself throughout. Along with academics, I could also explore my artistic interests.
I extend my sincere gratitude to our Principal Madam, our teachers and faculty members for all the support they have provided throughout the years.

It happened accidently that I chose the profession of pharmacy, & accidently I landed up in OCP. After coming here I received a great opportunity to learn basics of Pharmacy, Pharmacology, and Medicinal chemistry from experienced professors. It helped me built interest in all the subjects and hunger to learn more and more. Knowledge base was grounded very well in the faculty members they always motivated, mentored and groomed us. This knowledge paved a way for doing Masters in Pharmaceutics.
At OCP, there is a perfect blend of Academics and co-curricular activities that helped us for all round development& to build our personality; I could showcase my literary, editorial, &Art skills. My sincere gratitude towards Dr. Sudha Rathod ma’am, Principal, OCP & all faculty members for always supporting me. Our professors were always there to drive us throughout all the four years, with their mentorship we can now take leap high in our careers in Pharma.
I am sure, OCP will continue to create great future leaders of the Pharma industry.

OCP, the institute where my dreams took a shape and I became a better person.
There is no enough proof for me to justify how important OCP has been in shaping my career, words always fall short, there is an emotional connect with OCP that is beyond imagination.
Coming as a lanky boy with not much expectations and not so “curious” mind, I chose OCP as my alma mater for my graduation studies, little to know that this is going to change my entire life and career perspective forever.
OCP gave me a professional environment and guidance that is required; I was inspired enough by my seniors and professors to become what I am today.
Talking about inspiration, I got highly motivated about how practical education was at OCP,” The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity”, this saying is good enough to know what the work ethics and teaching style is at OCP.
I still remember some of my teachers who were always behind me to help me realise my potential and constantly work on my weaknesses to become more strong and better.
I will be, for my entire life and beyond it indebted to my alma mater.
I thank the staff, non- teaching staff and everyone at OCP for helping me in all possible ways.
I would also like to thank Principal Dr (Mrs.) Sudha Rathod for being always available and supportive towards me and the Alumni cell to have given me the opportunity to pen down my thoughts for OCP which would not have been possible to speak in person without moist eyes, Thanks!

It was hard to start in a field in which I had no idea about the subject and my future in it. But one thing I always had in my mind was to excel yourself in whatever task you are put in. It began with OCP, I was fortunate enough to get admission in such institute where there is always a friendly relationship with the faculty members. Dr.Sudha Rathod maam being my Mentor was a mentor to each and everyone, the doors were always open for any questions that popped in our mind. The teachers have given us immense knowledge and support not only in our academics but also in our extracurricular activities. In OCP we not only had tensioned exams but also the annual fest GRAVITY gave each and every one of us to explore ourselves and enjoy the entire week to the core. I have passed out from such a great institute that makes me feel happy and proud.

Change is the only constant thing in life. In my life change like studying in this institution is the most beautiful phase of life which I feel will be the precious one. After spending 4 years in the college now when I look back I see a change in myself from the time I entered to the time I am about to leave this beautiful environment. A change for my better future. Credits goes to teachers who moulds us into a good human being & build our confidence level for a perfect maneuver to reach our goals, also to the Principal maam who knew what‟s best for us & to our kind and helpful non-teaching staff. Major takeaway for me is „Knowledge‟, once said by my great proffessor “Knowledge never goes in vain. At some or the other point it will be applicable”. This institution has an endless support system, encouraged me at every point & most importantly people I met here like faculty members as well as friends are the best. Last but not least, „OCP‟ is the handsel and days here was the bliss of my life.

First of all thank you for giving me the opportunity to speak about my Life Changing alma mater “Gurukul” -Oriental College Pharmacy.

Now, I can speak with confidence and immense happiness that my life is truly changed by the quality education and knowledge, I gained from the extremely talented and research oriented professors (GURU’s) of Oriental college of pharmacy.

I have learnt a lot from my faculties, which cannot be expressed in some words, though, I would like to say, teachers are “not like”, in fact they are our second parents, I remember whether it is overwhelming support for understanding course of subjects or path of life OR going out of the way for helping in acquiring notes, books and many more; I’m thankful to them till my last breath.

My journey with OCP was enriched manifold by your presence, Teachers!

At the end, I would like to thank OCP for providing the family of scholars and lifelong friends who will always come back home to OCP and I will always owe my success to my Teachers, non-teaching staff and my College.

Best Wishes.

“Where there’s a will, there’s a way”. This proverb has been a career enhancing one. It was my own will to pursue Pharmacy and OCP paved a way out to explore my knowledge in this field.

“Where ever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love for humanity”. This principle is being followed so well in OCP. The highly experienced teaching faculty maintain a student friendly environment and support students at every step. Morever, our Principal Dr. (Mrs.) Sudha Rathod Ma‟am and the teaching faculty encourage and motivate the students for participating in various extra-curricular activities and competitions which help the students develop a sense of confidence and built overall personality. This institution believes in excellence and serves a great platform in serving the knowledge of Pharmacy in the best way to all the students.

The overall journey of four years in OCP had been amazing and memorable one. As I set out to fly higher in the sky in search of newer boundaries, I believe the knowledge gained at OCP will be that “Wind beneath my wings” which will help me reach out to newer skies and horizons in future.

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” That goal in my life has been to excel in Pharmacy. It has been the best thing which could ever happen to me. I am grateful to OCP who provided wings to my flight.

“Medicine is not only a science; it is also an art. It does not consist of compounding pills and plasters; it deals with the very processes of life, which must be understood before they may be guided.” Here at OCP we do not just focus on obtaining our B.pharm degree but to excel as an healthcare professional as the health of our future generations depends on us. Excellence drives in the blood of OCP faculty, such complex concepts of pharmacy explained in such a student friendly way. Special thanks to our principal Dr. Mrs. Sudha Rathod for motivating us not only in academics but also in various extra curricular activities like sports, cultural events, quiz & poster competitions, etc. This has enabled us to not only become good students but all rounder healthcare professionals.My overall journey at OCP consisted of many ups and downs. My greatest fear in life has been failure. That has enabled me to succeed these four years of my B.pharm and now I can proudly call myself an healthcare professional.

My journey through these four years would have been impossible without such excellent faculty of OCP. Thank you OCP for providing me such a strong foundation of knowledge which will greatly help me in my future endeavours. In the end I would like to quote “The aim of medicine is to prevent disease and prolong life, the ideal of medicine is to eliminate the need of a physician.”

Oriental College of Pharmacy is a perfect place where ”Dreams meet opportunities,” where principal madam being strong pillar, professors being storehouse of knowledge and college premises with its positive vibes adds 5 stars to the name of college. Being a parent, it is my responsibility to ensure that my daughter gets admission in right college. According to me, OCP is the apt one for my child. An institution is known by its rich history, academic excellence, progressive attitudes and the value it imbibes among its students. OCP is doing exactly the same task. Every parent desires for the grooming of one’s child and this college has proven this in all aspects such as education, sense of discipline, high moral and ethical values, social works, etc. The college also takes immense efforts in giving extra knowledge by conducting various GPAT sessions, which helps a lot during exams.
I value the efforts of professors and principal in training our children meticulously before they step out in competitive world out there. I am heartily thankful for encouragement, dedication and patience displayed by staff in handling my child, contributing to make her capable enough to flourish in future and become a resourceful person.

It is always a proud moment, to be a parent of an alumni of OCP, I would see Sana developing interest and keeping herself occupied in college related chores. She would discuss with me about the course curriculum- the lectures and the learning gained at the end. Myself, being a professor, I know how tedious it gets to make students understand , to fit in their shoe and imagine the way they are. I am amazed and will always be grateful to the faculty here, who have completely changed my daughter and have always helped her, showed what is best for her. I have attended all the PTMs which were organised throughout these 4 years , and I could see the teachers constantly hustling, constructing the improvements, and always guiding them. I feel it was the best investment as it is simply a perfect place for knowledge and memories. The teachers here have an idyllic culture to identify, make them learn, and help nourishing one’s passion and competencies.
I was overwhelmed by the friendly academic background; it was a blissful experience with OCP. It gives me immense satisfaction to tell that students here have a great future ahead. OCP gave an opportunity to evolve and played a vital role beyond words. I wish good luck to everyone. And I hope management continues with the great work.

I always feel proud that my son is an alumni of OCP, as a father I was quite unsure whether my son would be able to travel and still make time for study despite him being a bit lazy.
But I was baffled by the response and the good changes in my son’s personality following his admission in OCP.
As working parents, it was quite difficult for us to pay attention to his studies, but be assured, faculty and staff have got your back in this regard, I was extremely satisfied by the support teacher gave to Aditya, they were his parents at the institute.
The emotional and professional support by faculty at OCP is unique I feel, and this aspect is what makes OCP the best.
I was overwhelmed by faculty support to reach out to us whenever there has been any issue; regular parent’s teachers meeting also helped me to keep a track on my son’s progress.
Overall the experience has been great.
