"I would like to quote Sir Benjamin franklin here, “If everyone is thinking alike, then no one is thinking.” Great Lakes follows the above said lines. It is teaching me to think out of the box, explore beyond boundaries and implement without fear. The Faculty members are the driving force behind the program. They don't just teach subjects but they actually help in overall personality development."
