AHMEDABAD: It’s perhaps the most exciting times for any student when they first arrive at the college and spend the first week knowing their peers, seniors, teachers and canteen staff! But the pandemic changed it all, with majority of the institutes holding the first interaction of students in virtual mode. MICA, going a step further, has decided to include parents of the students of their flagship course for the orientation beginning Monday. In all, about 1,000 will be part of the exercise.
Prof Shubhra Gaur, orientation programme chair, said that the decision is taken to make them equal partners in the students’ educational and professional journey and introducing them to the institute’s community, culture and curriculum.
“It is second virtual orientation for us. This time, 6C – campus, community, curriculum, content, city, and contemporary world – will be focus of the orientation,” said Prof Gaur.
