Thiruvasagam getting a feel of a video camera.All essential services for the students of Bharathiar University are now available on the campus.This is to prevent students from making frequent trips to the city for their essential requirements, according to Vice-Chancellor G. Thiruvasagam.In addition to the already existing hair saloon for men, stationery and general shop, photocopying and binding facility, refreshment stall, the students can use the bank, post office, women’s care centre and travel desk, that were inaugurated on the university premises here on Thursday. The travel desk that would enable students and staff to arrange travel by road, rail or by air was inaugurated by K. Hemalatha, Director, Coimbatore Airport.


“Out of the 1,800 students, more than 1,400 are staying in the hostel. When they have to go home during holidays they have to wait in queues in the bus stand or railway stations. This will enable them to go home without much inconvenience,” said the Vice-Chancellor. The services would be offered free to begin with.



A university branch of the Bank of India was the next to be inaugurated. The bank would provide core banking facilities and also ATM facility. Fee payment could be made online. A post office was also inaugurated by R. Kannan, Conservator of Forests.A women’s care centre, where women students and staff could play indoor games, do yoga and meditation, was also opened. A video-audio studio exclusively to be used by the university and its affiliated colleges was next to be inaugurated. The centre would not only record speeches and lectures, but also produce study material in the form of DVDs, CDs or cassettes. The material would also be made available to other colleges via Internet or the EDUSAT.



The highlight of the day was the visit to the birthday garden. This was christened to enable those celebrating their birthday to plant a sapling in that garden. Three people who shared their birthday on Thursday planted three saplings. “Each sapling will carry the name of the person planting it. There will be dedicated gardeners to nurture these saplings.


Those who wish to plant saplings have to register their names one day prior at the office of the Public Relations Officer of the university,” Mr. Thiruvasagam said.To take the idea forward, Mr. Kannan suggested that the NSS and NCC volunteers of the university could take up some aforestation activities in the nearby reserve forest area. The Vice-Chancellor is confident that providing all services under a single roof would put Bharathiar University on the international map.
