What is 'Let's Promote BITS-Pilani' initiative?
This initiative was thought of when there were growing concerns on the popularity of BITS-Pilani among the student community. All of us wanted BITS- Pilani and all its campuses to be the first choice for an aspirant. Besides this, the unique features and flexibilities offered at BITS-Pilani are often not clear to many students who want to seek enrolment into degree programmes offered at BITS-Pilani.
That's when we decided to start this initiative - "Lets Promote BITS-Pilani".
Aim of 'Let's Promote BITS-Pilani'
The aim of this initiative is to get the brightest minds to each of the four BITS-Pilani campuses (Pilani, Goa, Dubai and Hyderabad) and ensure than awareness about the unique features of BITS-Pilani is generated among high school students, parents and school faculty.
The first step & road ahead
The first information session held at Hyderabad received a huge response with more than 200 students participating in the session. Now it is time to spread the wings and expand the horizons. Our aim is to reach around 40000 students across 200 schools and we can't do that without your help.
How can you help?
We are looking for volunteers among the current students at BITS-Pilani campuses on roll, who will act as ambassadors for BITS-Pilani at various high schools and colleges. These dedicated volunteers will take information sessions on BITS-Pilani across the nation in various schools and colleges and tell the BITS-Pilani story to students. There volunteers will promote the new campuses of BITS-Pilani and highlight the specific features that makes BITS stand apart from other institutions in the league. Game for it?
What are you required to do?
You, as 'Ambassadors of BITS-Pilani' will be expected to do the following for Let's Promote BITS-Pilani initiative:
Contact your respective 12th class schools/colleges and let them know of the idea and usefulness of such an information-session in the school for the benefit of students;
Fix up a date and time (if possible) for the information session;
Provide the schools with posters informing students about the date/time/venue of the session in advance;
Deliver the presentation with/without the aid of presentation slides (depending on infrstructure provided by school authorities);
Answer queries of enthusiastic students with respect to BITS-Pilani, student lifestyle, all campuses, unique features, academics, flexibilities, admissions etc.;
Collect feedback for the session conducted;
Send the updates to the team and share it among other volunteers/Ambassadors to improve the initiative approach.
Its simple! Isn't it?
Remember, it is the timely support and little bit of enthusiasm on the part of BITSians on-campus that can make this initiative a big success!
Why Do It?
Apart from helping achieve the objectives of this collaborative initiative between the on-campus students and BITSian alums, there are a number of advantages associated with you being a part of this initiative:
You will get a golden chance to represent BITS-Pilani at your college/school. Remember, you are going to school as a 'Proud to Be BITSian' Ambassador and your actions will affect the BITS-Pilani brand among the students out there. So it gives you an opportunity to carry yourself at the very best.
You will get to improve your public speaking and presentation skills.
You can start building your network of school friends and colleagues, and choose to act as their mentor for future decisions and activities.
Most importantly, you get a chance to show the world 'what is means to be a BITSian'.
What is expected out of the Schools/Colleges?
The schools/colleges must provide you the permission to conduct such sessions for their 11th-12th class students. They can preferably provide us with a large hall with sound system and projection facility (if possible). Also, prior information about the date and time of this session and associated advantages must be communicated to all interested target students well in advance.
In our experience, schools till now have responded very positivley and in an extremely cooperative manner for all LPBP sessions. We are sure it will be the same in your case too!
