‘Campus connect’ is here

The service has been started by a group of final year students of MVSR Engineering College



ENTERPRISING LOT:Final year students of MVSR Engineering College who started the service.

Connecting the students and teachers with the developments in their college and reaching every one of them with emergency messages, students of MVSR Engineering College in Hyderabad have used mobile technology to bring more comfort into their lives.

Aptly named Campus Connect, the service has been started by a group of final year students.

All the students who register for the service get regular updates about placements, inter-college events, inter-department events and any emergency within the college and outside so as to change their schedule.

“Recently, an internal examination got delayed and the message relieved tension among candidates rushing to the college,” says Rohit Ahuja, a key man in shaping this service.

Tie up

Advait Singh Thakur, a final year student from CSE branch got the idea of connecting the students and the support came from his friends Abhinay, Ganesh, Dharneesh, Rakesh, Amit, Paramveer, Vineel, Anil, Samanth and Rakesh. They pooled money among themselves and tied up with a SMS provider.

Now all that students need is to register to join the group and contribute just Rs. 5 every month to get the updates. Rohit says more than 1200 students have already registered. Even the faculty have joined the group .

Blog

The students have also started a blog - www.mvsrcampusconnect.blogspot.com - that acts as a college e-newspaper where the latest updates are put up and every activity whether academic or sports is covered. Seniors share information with juniors on last dates of various examinations, campus interview tips and details on GRE, TOEFL and foreign education. A website - www.mvsrcampusconnect.org – has also been launched to provide details. The guys behind it want to leave their footprints in the college that has shaped their lives.
