It is my distinct pleasure to congratulate the inaugural graduating students of SRM, Amaravati. As I have been involved with this new university since its conception, I do feel a sense of pride in celebrating your accomplishments and wishing you all the very best in the next phase of your career and beyond.
We value the contributions you have made, and we thank you for sharing your cultures, interests, ideas, and insights. You have earned your degree with your hard work, perseverance, and dedication. Your professors have attested that your academic abilities meet the highest standards that we have established at SRM, Amaravati.. Your quest for knowledge, creativity, and passion will continue; but today, let us pause to recognize and celebrate your significant milestone.
I would like to share a few pieces of simple advice. Education is not only a degree or certificate that can be shown to others as a proof. It is the impact that molds your attitude, actions, thoughts, and behavior in real life.
Your success in the next stage of your life will depend on how you put your learning experience and values to use in your pursuit of excellence.
Be bold and take risks. Dream high and give wings to your dreams.
And finally, whatever you do, make a commitment to the world to make it a better place. Our best wishes will be always with you.
Once again, congratulations!
