LNMIIT Counselling & Guidance Cell
……..because we care

Choosing a college is a huge undertaking, with many applications filled, and after students have selected their future sanctuary at LNMIIT- they deserve to be welcomed with warmth. There arises a need of a guide-someone you can look up to as a leader as well as confide in. C-CELL aims at helping freshers harness their highest academic and personal potential. Besides providing mentors, the counselling cell ensures that every individual reaches that first rung on the ladder to a successful transition. The understanding family of C-CELL pledges to bring out the best from each new member.

Roles and Responsibilities

Deciding your second home - your college is a tedious task and to acknowledge this college as your second home is an even more difficult one. There is a total metamorphosis in a student’s life as he enters his freshman year; he experiences mixed emotions some of which may be fruitful and some may be hazardous for a fresher’s development.

This now becomes the responsibility of the Counselling Cell (C-Cell) to guide the freshers in every difficulty they face in this new environment and eliminate the harmful emotions they feel. We ensure that this institute becomes a home away from your home. It becomes our prioritized task to make the new batch settle in the college and let them know that the C-Cell is there to care for them -

  • Some students may feel anxious at times and panic but should know that the C-Cell is always there for them at such times.
  • Introducing them to the working of the college- the clubs, fests, academic pattern.
  • Guiding them in every aspect of college be it their personal areas of interest or the scholastic pattern of different courses.
  • Introducing them to different seniors who would help them in their desired field.

The Counselling and Guidance Cell is always there to guide and help the fresher batch faces in every difficult situation.

The Team

A determined, focused and hardworking team under the able guidance of a Convener assisted by two Coordinators and a few Associate Coordinators brings on board every working and possible measure to bring ease to the lives of new members of the LNMIIT family. The sophisticatedly structured and trained team includes super seniors as well as sophomores to manage every situation that can possibly pop up before them. Student mentors are assigned to students in manageable groups. This very conceptualization is done keeping in mind that the focus should be on the students and to create a strong bridge between college and the new members.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How to study and achieve academic excellence in the college?

    A course information document is provided upon beginning of a course which clearly demarcates the syllabus, grading criteria, requirements, and the books to refer.

    Attending classes regularly, jotting notes personally and briefing oneself with weekly overviews of those notes is generally sufficient to score well. The institute follows the rule of relative grading, i.e. the grades are based on the maximum and average score and assessment criteria decided by the instructor. Students who are regular in classes learn more and score more.

    Reference books are made available in the library with limited copies. Students generally study through soft copies of the books since it proves to be economical, and convenient for long term usage. Students carry personal laptops for efficiency and ease of work regardless of their branch. Although, it is not necessary for students, homework is quite often done on softwares that need a laptop as a resource (especially at later stages of academic life).

    We also have an institutional repository maintained by the library which holds records of question papers, magazines, publications, and research papers submitted by the students of the institute.

  2. What are the sports facilities provided in the college?

    Our institute provides us with individual outdoor courts of basketball, volleyball, cricket, football, and kabaddi.

Huge number of elective courses is available for both branches in course curriculum.

  29. Necessity of getting a laptop (According to branch). And suggestions for good specifications.

    Though it would be good to have a laptop at the starting of the semester, it would not be a necessity at all. The work that we have to do in the first semester usually does not require laptops, and most work can be done on mobile phones.

    Although the first semester involves C programming as a core subject so a laptop would be beneficial for a student eventually. But the students not having one won’t be at a loss since the campus library is well equipped with PCs that may serve your purpose just fine.

    You don’t necessarily need a high end laptop and any laptop would be fine. If you’re going for a purchase, consider the following specifications:

    4GB RAM
    Intel Core i5/AMD a10 512 MB Graphics Card

    You can find good deals around Diwali if you can wait till then.
