Strength Through Unity - Bringing BITSians Closer
“No one is stronger than all of us” reads a famous quote online. And over the years BITSiansaround the world have proved that it holds true. We have come together to fund education initiatives at BITS, set up world class infrastructure for the newer generation to use, helped out fellow BITSians in need and sometimes, just gathered together on BITSians Day to relive our old memories together. It is this love for BITS as well as our desire to help out fellow BITSians that sets us apart from many other institutions. We, at BITSAA, always strive to strengthen the spirit of giving back to BITS Pilani, towards better infrastructure, student exposure and education quality among other things. BITSAA is looking for contributions to fund many initiatives that help BITSians as well as BITS Pilani, in the short term as well as long term. For many of us, busy working professionals, this might be the easiestway to give back.
