Dr. Joyce Zinyu Angami, the first Lady doctor from KSC inaugurated the alumni PG women’s hostel with a capacity for 40 post graduate students of Kohima Science College (KSC) at the college campus on April 13. The hostel was constructed by the alumni association Kohima Science College, Jotsoma.

According to DIPR report, while speaking at the inaugural programme, Dr. Joyce Zinyu Angami hoped that the hostel would not just be a place to find academic excellence but also be a place of safety, peace and serenity.

KSC principal, Dr. Lily pointed out that at present, the college has four hostels, three boys’ hostels and one girls’ hostel with a total capacity of 320 students.

She informed that since 2016, after adopting the choice based credit system, the college had seen a huge increase in the intake of students.

The present session has enrolled around 2000 students with female students constituting 65% of the total students.

She stated that the completion of the hostel was a relief for the college as many students were from economically weaker section. 

Dr. Lily expressed her gratitude to the alumni association for their contributions and support.

Sharing a brief history on the hostel construction, alumni association general secretary, Avelu Ruho said that the association formed in 2009, initiated a project named project alpha 1 in 2009 during which the college’s local area network (LAN) of 100 Mbps and high speed broadband service was operationalised.

Emboldened by the success of the project, the association decided to pursue the need for constructing a girls hostel and named it as project alpha 2 with an estimated budget of Rs. 1 crore.

The foundation stone was then laid in 2011 by the then minister of urban development, Dr. Shürhozelie Liezietsu. 

Ruho revealed that the search for fund was not an easy one but after many setbacks faced in funding, the association received Rs. 90 lakh so far in donations and contributions alone from alumni, parents of students, college fraternity, well wishers and raffle draw organised in 2017.

She thanked the faculty and staff of KSC, former principals of the college involved with the project for the successful completion of the project.
