About Us

We understand that you want to gain as much from your time at IIT Kanpur as is possible, both academically and socially. The Counselling Service strives to ensure the welfare of the students by providing them emotional, academic and financial assistance. By looking after your well-being, the Service tries to ensure that IITK is not just an institute, but a home away from home for you. The Service consists of a team of professional counsellors and a dedicated group of student volunteers and faculty advisors working in two primary arms: one concentrates on acclimatizing the freshmen to the new environment, and the other deals with mental health issues of the students.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a 2012 American coming-of-age drama film-based on Stephen Chbosky’s 1999 novel of the same name.
The film is about a socially awkward teen Charlie (Logan Lerman) who is a wallflower, always watching life from the sidelines, until two charismatic students become his mentors.
Free-spirited Sam (Emma Watson) and her stepbrother Patrick (Ezra Miller) help Charlie discover the joys of friendship, first love, music and more, while a teacher sparks Charlie's dreams of becoming a writer.
However, as his new friends prepare to leave for college, Charlie's inner sadness threatens to shatter his newfound confidence.
