935 … That’s the current world record for people wearing the same team dress. Aussies did it to show support for their team at the London 2012 Olympics**
Can BITSians beat that world record by wearing a BITS T-Shirt to our place of work on Friday, 11th Jan, 2013? ...
January 2013 marks the commencement of a seamlessly connected BITS-Pilani University. This will mark the day when BITS Pilani redefines the education scenario in India. This is when the BITS Connect 2.0 (BC2) program kicks off - Faculty will start delivering lectures to all the campuses simultaneously; Alumni and experts will start delivering lectures, workshops, panel discussions across all campuses at the same time; Alumni will start interacting with students and professors in any of the campuses for collaborative projects; Companies who come for recruiting will have access to four times the talent from just one location.
This will change the way the world will look at BITS Pilani. On Jan 11th, as BITSians, we can show our solidarity to BITS Connect 2.0, to the technological progress it promises for our alma mater, by wearing a BITS t-shirt to our places of work. It will be our symbolic way of saying "I am proud to be a BITSian”.
How can you participate?
- If you already have a BITS T-shirt from old times (and fit into it) keep it ready! If not, purchase a BITS T-shirt from the BITSAA Indian Estore (coming next week) or the BITSAA USA E-store.
- Gather BITSians in your workplace and get their concurrence on ‘Wear your BITS T-shirt Day’.
- On Jan 11th, spot BITSians – in your office, on the streets, outside in a mall etc. Click pictures and post them on the BITS Pilani Facebook page.
Please take a minute to fill this doc so that we can get in touch with you when we bring more information on ‘Wear your BITS T-shirt to work Day’.
Thank you and looking forward to your support!

The BITSConnect2.0 Team
