My Experience

From the first day to now,Maitreyi has been an Alma meter worth bragging about.Having a passion for performing arts,the societies have provided a big platform to develop my skills.Even though coming from a convent co-ed school,I was dreaded to attend an all girls college,but the activities,opportunities and ambience makes it worth having no cute guys around.And the girls here unlike Jon Snow literally know everything.
