Dimapur, May 13 (EMN): Some college students from Nagaland got the opportunity to go for an educational tour which was organised by Nagaland-based NGO, the YouthNet, and Educentre.

The winning teams of the Hornbill First Cut inter collegiate business competition from St. Joseph’s college and the Pow Wow competition winners from Tetso College got the chance to take part in the tour, informed an update from the YouthNet.

“The idea is to allow young people, especially the ones looking to study outside the state to get an opportunity to visit colleges, various campuses and get exposure to the new environments which would enable them to enhance their chances of more career opportunities,” read the statement from the YouthNet.

It went on to say that most students choose the institution they want to study in based on a little information provided on college websites and newspapers ads, so the educational tour was beneficial to the students as it gave them “first-hand experience.”

A total of 20 students along with three staff took part in the educational tour of colleges in Hyderabad, Bangalore and Coimbatore.
