City Conditions

THE GLASS CITY : The University of Toledo and the city of Toledo have a lot in common. Grit and determination. An innovative and engaged community. Add a dollop of Midwestern friendliness. Toledo is located in northwest Ohio near the shores of western Lake Erie. More than 600,000 people live, work and play in the Toledo metropolitan area. The city has long been known for its auto manufacturing and glass industry. But it has a growing reputation as a great place to start a career and make a home. Toledo is home to the famous Mud Hens baseball team, Jeep headquarters and the world-renowned Toledo Museum of Art. Enjoy family-owned restaurants that have been around for decades and recently-opened farm-to-table restaurants and microbreweries.


Apartment Guide has created a specialty apartment search for The University of Toledo to help students, faculty, and employees find the best off-campus living options. With a large inventory of multifamily apartments, students won’t have to waste their valuable time looking all over.
All first-year and second-year students who live outside of a twenty-five-mile radius from the university must live on campus and participate in the meal plan program. Living on campus allows students to focus on what matters most. Statistics show students who live on campus have higher grade point averages, are more involved, and have higher retention rates.
Conveniently located close to dining and classes, on-campus housing is a hassle-free, safe home to live with friends and enjoy the University of Toledo in students' backyard. As a student required to live on campus next academic year, we recommend students apply now so current residents can get the best choice of rooms on campus.

Indian student association

The Indian Students Cultural Organisation (ISCO) is a non-profit organisation for all students from India, of Indian descent, or interested in Indian culture. It has been given the Best Student Organisation Award consecutively from 2001 to 2004 and the 3rd Best Student Organisation Award for 2014-2015. Our primary objectives are to promote service and leadership opportunities and create an environment where students of different backgrounds can bond over our beloved culture. For our many international students, we know how tough it is to travel to a new country, thousands of miles away from home, and to settle down in American culture, as well as feeling homesick from all your friends and family back home. Our Indian-American students understand how important it is to find people like you who understand the balance of being both American and Indian and making sure you still stay connected to your heritage. We endeavour to complement student academic programs and enhance the overall educational experience of students through their participation in social, cultural, intellectual, and recreational activities. Our organisation tries to spread the word of “togetherness” by bringing one community to share Indian culture, regardless of gender, race, orientation, etc.

Assistant Professor

Department of Management Studies Convener, Entrepreneurship Cell, VIT Member - BMA

I got into the academic field after an overall 17 years of industry experience. It was this industry experience for which I have been teaching subjects ranging from Marketing to Operations to International Business. Being born in an entrepreneurial family, it was only natural to follow the footsteps of my predecessors. I had joined my father in business long before I had graduated. We were into assembling and marketing of bio-medical equipment, mainly physiotherapy equipment. After having joined, I expanded the product range to include imported equipment mainly of American and Italian make. I also successfully entered into exports mainly through channels into the African markets! I managed to expand the annual turnover to three times the original size and sustained it at that level for more than half a decade! It was due to this experience that I have been successfully teaching Entrepreneurship Management and run an Entrepreneurship Cell. In the later stage, I moved into the job market to begin my career afresh.

I then joined Zycus Software Pvt. Ltd. as a Health Care Business Analyst as I had a rich experience of medical equipment and devices. My main role was UNSPC classification. My experience with an Indian MNC I.T. company helped to teach subjects like Technology Management. I realized that to go ahead I had to have a higher qualification. I worked on the side and enrolled for an MBA degree in an American University. I felt since I was out of the SME sector and into the bigger world, I had to have a global exposure. I took a sabbatical from work, used up my life savings and got into academics after a gap of 15 years! My stay in the U.S. and exposure to the American universities changed the course of my life and my thinking to a large extent. Earlier academics was something to leave behind…...I suddenly realized I loved academics and the academic environment! Continual interactions with the faculty and having spent a large time with American academics made my decision concrete of starting my second innings in academics and I continue to remain thankful for that.

On my return I started working with a medico marketing company and also started working as a visiting faculty at N.M.I.M.S. After a couple of years, I joined Vidyalankar as a full-time faculty. I then realized that it was due to my varied industry experience. My other professional interests which I am currently working on are business consulting and new product development. Being from the Biomedical industry, the new product ideas that I have in my mind are again medical devices which I intend to work upon, using my own capital, which I am currently accumulating, for using on R&D. Once an entrepreneur always an entrepreneur! The bug hasn’t left me still. Being the Convener of the Entrepreneurship Cell, I have almost made it my life’s mission to motivate students to become entrepreneurs. I am also pursuing my Doctoral program and looking to start new product development and consulting shortly.

Amongst my personal interests and hobbies, I love trekking and have been fortunate enough to have trekked the Himalayas and the Sahyadri range. I have trekked up the Gaumukh trail (the origin of the Ganges) twice. I swim very regularly and love long walks. I am passionate about cricket and had represented my school at various levels. That apart, I am also an avid reader, love to travel and a passionate foodie!
