My 3rd sessional pathology practical exam: Me and my friends coming back from canteen after our lunch preparing ourselves for the viva ahead. Suddenly we heard a voice of a man asking us, Is this the dental college and are you guys dental students? We affirmed and they started their further enquiry. They told us that they had come for counselling and were not sure as to which campus they should choose. On further introduction it was actually nice talking to someone in Hindi after such a long time and remembering the time when we were doing the same thing few years back. images   Manipal College of Dental Sciences, one of the premier dental institutions in India having two branches in Manipal and Mangalore.

  1. Being a passed out student of MCODS Manipal, i can tell you that:
    Manipal – The place itself is enough to make your life beautiful for years to come.
    CODS Manipal campus has high end facilities which makes students well versed with the state of the art conditions anywhere else they go after that.
    Academically it is the best. The Central Library offers a best place not just for studies but tons of happy moments.
    Marena – The indoor sports stadium, Greens – the best place to hang out and many food points serving different varieties of foods make it the place of choice for millions. End Point – though the recent constructions are spoiling its beauty, its still a kool place!
    HUES – Annual cultural festival of MCODS Manipal – a full week of enjoyment and fun and creates a very good platform for students to show their extra curricular talents.
    Sports week, Voluntary Services, UTSAV – are other awesome moments to name.
    It is generally said that manipal doesn’t offer enough patient exposure, but if someone wants to learn something, they can always do that in manipal.

    Both colleges are equally good, but manipal teaches you how to live!
