Nowadays, there is an increasing trend among the students of higher education to enrol in institutions that are away from their home. They do this in search of better facilities and quality of education. Due to its high rank at the regional and national level among higher education institutes, Mithibai College is a favourite college for students not only from Mumbai, but also from all over India. Hence, a large number (approximately 500) students take admission in Mithibai College for various Courses.
Problems faced by outstation students
The outstation students stay as paying guests or in hostels, away from their home. They get the opportunity to visit their hometown only during vacations. It is observed that the outstation students face several issues of adjustments and adaptation to their new environment. There are concerns about their security and safety, emotional ups and downs due to homesickness, etc. As there is no one close enough to share their problems, outstation students find it difficult to adjust at times. Issues of adjustment at times affect their academic performance, too.
Concept of Home Away from Home
Mithibai College not only recognised this problem, but decided to address it in a systematic manner. Under the guidance of Principal Dr Rajpal Shripat Hande, the Students’ Committee of Mithibai College initiated a unique activity for the outstation students- HOME AWAY FROM HOME. A meeting of outstation students was organised on 21 September 2018. The name of this unique activity was suggested by Dr Rajpal Shripat Hande.
Features of Home Away from Home
The Home Away from Home programme will focus on three aspects: emotional issues, academic performance, and safety of outstation students. Student members of the Students’ Committee are involved in this programme. Teacher members of the Students’ Council will do overall monitoring.
Role of the Students’ Committee
Dr Rajpal Shripat Hande has entrusted the Students’ Committee the task of being a bridge between the outstation students and the College. The Committee will make sure that it provides emotional support and a safe environment to study in. The outstation students will be provided important information about police stations, hospitals, railway network, etc. For this, groups of 5 outstation students each are made with one Students’ Committee member as a mentor. The mentor will remain in constant contact with the outstation students in the respective group. The mentor will respond to the queries and issues faced by the outstation students. Student Members of the Students’ Committee have collected details of the outstation students which would be used for further communication.

This event was one of the most memorable and thoughtful as it left everyone with a message, that no matter how old one grows, home is home. Mithibai College served to be that home.
