If you have guessed it right, I am talking about the efforts of "Admission team" in smooth completion of the admission process of our college.
I take pride in saying; most of the events in our college are student driven. And this is one of the biggest events that are student driven, but of course with the support of professors. In the process what do the students get? Why are they doing it?
To state a few facts - the admission process takes place for four days. About 800 students attend the process. The number of students involved in helping the process apart from the admission team is 80 students per day. So you can understand the quantum of effort that goes to make it successful. The students form teams for successful execution of the process.
The students are involved in the process from 7:45 am till 9:00 pm. They assume different roles as Transit coordinators, Panel coordinators, Registration coordinators, Verification and Query Resolution coordinators. One can find all of them busy in making the process as smooth as possible and most importantly on schedule. Students are guided from the SJMSOM building to the admission process location (which is in same campus but in a different building). As soon as they reach, they are given a brief presentation on the college, which is followed by WAT (written aptitude test), parallel Verification, and an interview.
To answer my previous question, this is why management students do it - MBA is not a subject that can be understood inside the walls of the room. Students go out of their way to learn team work and understand the intricacies of the process. After these 4 days, the happiness we get is not quantifiable; the satisfaction of success, the accolades from professors for successful admission process brings confidence in the students which are unmatched with any of the theory we learn in classrooms.
