BITSians' Day 2014
After a successful event last year, BITSAA is back with the second edition of BITSians’ day to be held on the 1st of August 2014, all throughout the weekend! BITSians’ day is a unique initiative, where BITSians across the globe meet one another and enjoy the good old BITSian days. It helps to forge connections across batches and chapters, thus helping in bringing the world BITSian Community more close to each other. It brings together BITSians locally located close but unaware of this commonness they share as well as BITSians located miles away from each other but once shared the same locality of BITS campuses- all in one day.
On 2nd of August last year, Proud-to-be-BITSians around the world donned their BITS T-shirts and set forward to bring out the BITSian inside them and relive their BITSian days. Marathons, lunch-meets, coffee-meets were lined up for the day with people coming together and celebrating being a BITSian. Over 1500 BITSians in over 75 companies all over the world wore BITS t-shirts to work and organized get-togethers of BITSians in their workplace, wading through memories of the glorious prime days of their lives, recollecting incidents and events from their days at BITS.

How BITSians swarmed the social media on this day is a different tale altogether! BITSians posted status messages with their BITS Identification numbers, shared nostalgic photos of their BITSian journeys, wished each other “Happy BITSian’s Day”! As it was the first attempt by alumni of any college, the sudden outburst of BITSian spirit baffled the Facebook junta and in every probability made them envious too. “BITSian’s Day” was noted as the most trending topic in Bangalore according to Twitter Trendsmap Bangalore and number 5 all over India.
Activities and events marked celebrations across chapters, attended by over 1000 BITSians. BITSians in IIMs and other universities across the world didn’t stay behind in this celebration of BITSianness.
Be prepared to experience all that excitement yet again! Various events are being planned for August 1 across the globe, and the details will be intimated to you shortly. Please keep watching this space for more information.
Looking forward to seeing you all together yet again!
