Considering the learning, experiences, exposures, encounters with different people and opportunities to embrace various cultures, I can’t thank Royal Thimphu College and Pitzer College enough for giving me this life changing opportunity. Besides vigorous and inclusive academic learning, recreational facilities and sports like gym, cycling, swimming, skateboarding and playing snooker (pool) amongst many various supporting facilities have been a great part of the enriching new experiences of my stay at Pitzer.
For the second time, a team of Bhutanese students from Royal Thimphu College has won the silver medal at the annual Mekong Business Challenge (MBC) final round held in Myanmar on Saturday, March 11, 2017, in a competition involving teams from the Mekong region (Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, and Yunnan Province of China) and Bhutan.
