Rajitha Reniguntla (Class of 2017)

I just finished my first year at The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and yet I still clearly remember the day of high school graduation, walking up the stage to get my diploma like it was yesterday.

Just within the first year of university, I have lead two projects with local businesses in Hong Kong. Both of these projects have given me a real-life experience to the business world, understanding how a business operates and what sort needs it has. Moreover, I have taken part in a case competition, and well as consulting panel events. Delia prepared me really well in terms of both verbal and written communication skills, equipping me with both professional presentations and report writing skills. All in all, there are lots of opportunities ranging from student societies, panel events, competitions, study trips and etc for students to learn and gain experience from in a university.

If I had to describe my first year of university in one word, it would be; challenging. As broad as it may sound, it is true. Maintaining that healthy balance between academics and social life was very challenging. In school, you have your small, but close group of friends, and that's who you’re with all the time. At university, you meet so many people through different classes, activities, competitions, and it's really tough and can get tiring to keep up with all of them regularly. In terms of academics, everyone is competitive, and there is always someone who is better than you. Thus, it has made me push and challenge myself further. First Year of the university did have many ups and downs, but luckily, I had two friends from Delia at HKUST with me, so at the end of the day, it was nice to see a familiar face and support each other throughout this adventure.

"What stood out the most to me about Delia through the twelve years I’ve been here has been the environment. It was an environment of constant growth, progress, and flexibility. It wasn’t just the students that tried to be better with each passing grade, but it was also the teachers. The teachers do all they can to address the needs of each individual and accommodate the learning styles of every new class. Textbooks and databases can prescribe basics, but it is the teachers that ensured I could understand class content deep enough to critically answer the hard questions related to it.

There has always been a focus at Delia to build the skills necessary for students to succeed in the future, whether that future is in University or in the next grade. The University process was daunting, to say the least. Going through months and months of preparation, coupled with the ominous “where are you going to University” question was a lot to deal with. Fortunately, I had the support of the guidance counselors, who made sure every aspect of my application for both UCAS and the Common App were in order. I knew that if I was ever struggling with an essay prompt or was confused about a step in the application process, I could set up an appointment with them.

Above all, at Delia, it’s never about getting a certain score on an examination, it’s always about how much you’ve learned about the world from each course."
