Jalandhar, Punjab: Understanding the fact that higher education from a marked educational institution is considered as a great choice of life and is as invaluable now as it ever has been, Ace International Shooter, Arjuna Awardee & Olympian, Gurpreet Singh has joined Bachelor of Arts Program at Lovely Professional University. Be it kings, queens, prince-princesses or other high positioned persons with illustrious achievements; higher education always plays a pivotal role in their day to day delineations. Even Godly incarnations like Rama, Krishna, Arjuna and many other joined “Gurukuls” in forests, shunning all pleasures of the palatial palaces.

Presently employed with Army Marksman Ship Unit, this Amritsar born young shooter had started practicing and competing for shooting in the year 2007 when he was a mere lad of 19 years. Illustrious achievements started pouring on him and he continued with a passion being completely devoid of higher education. Worth mentioning, Gurpreet Singh represented India in Rio Olympics 2016 and secured 7th place in 25m Rapid Fire Pistol event. He has also won gold medals (with games record) in 25m and 10m Rapid Fire Pistol (Pairs) events and Bronze medal in 25m Individual event in 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games; Silver medal in 25m Centre Fire Pistol Men's Team event during 2014 Asian Games (Incheon) numerous other medals in various International and national events.

Prior to Gurpreet, another top shooter Amanpreet Singh had joined the university’s MBA Program. Both of them visited LPU campus, met Chancellor Mr. Ashok Mittal, faculty & staff members and interacted with LPU students. They also expressed their happiness on the encouragement they are getting from the university. While interacting with these distinguished students, he appreciated their preference for LPU programs and conveyed best wishes to keep on bringing more laurels to the country.

Gurpreet shared: “We all need certain solid skills, including proper communication, day-to-day administration, project management, initiatives and commitments, which we can acquire only from our overall university experience. Being unable to pursue higher education at a top institution like LPU, I used to consider myself lacking in something great in spite of my world level glorious achievements. I am thankful to LPU that it has initiated its distance learning programs just like those for regular students, for persons like me and others. Now, I am excited to earn my bachelor’s degree from LPU with subjects of my choice.” He also added: “Reaching LPU Campus I saw that diverse student communities here are bubbling with young leaders who are supported fully to cultivate their leadership skills. Here, one can have easy access to wonderful and thought-provoking student groups, societies and sports teams which are to broaden your horizons, undoubtedly. In addition, I will also be given the opportunity to attend alumni and university events, which brings forth the latest developments and excellent networking opportunities.”
