BITSAA Fundraising Drive 2014
“BITSAA International is dedicated in keeping the brand of BITS flying high! Towards that, it works incessantly in keeping BITSians connected to each other and BITS, our Alma Mater. Our Alma Mater gave us more than an education! She gave us the opportunity to embrace life with a passion and experience some of the best days of our lives. It is only natural that each of us who have gained so much in life would be motivated to give some back to our Alma Mater so that she continues to offer the same for generations to come!” - Jayan Ramankutty, Managing Partner at KRK Ventures, LLC and Incoming BITSAA Chairman.
Will you step up and give back to your Alma Mater?
We gain so much more than just an education from BITS, so it is imperative that we try to give as much back. The term alma-mater is reason enough, but if you need further motivation to give back, here is a selective list of initiatives which are impacting the lives of BITSians globally.
Career enhancing avenues
BITS CAREER CENTRE: Career Centre provides an exclusive platform to find the right jobs for BITSians and to provide the required guidance early in one’s career by connecting you with 50,000+ brilliant BITSians.

Connecting BITSians globally
BITSAA CHAPTERS: BITSAA has over 50+ local chapters functioning in countries, cities and BITSian heartlands in continents across the world. Chapters help BITSians connect seamlessly with batchmates, wingies and other BITSians as well as garner support and participation of members for various BITSian initiatives and causes.
The grand celebrations thus far witnessed the BITSian community coming together for virtual & localized reunions and showcased the BITSian pride - Once a BITSian, always a BITSian!
BITSians' DAY: BITSians across the world celebrate the first Friday of August as the BITSians day. The first week of August signifies the beginning of a new academic year and the time when our BITSian journeys commenced - the journey most definitely continues.
