Fresher’s Party | Student Voice

In News

This academic year started on a nice and different note for us at St Pauls, as we (the second year students) organized our first fresher’s party for the new batch of F.Y.B.Voc and F.Y.B.M.M (from the women’s college) students. This event was organized on Tuesday, 11th September 2018.

Fresher’s Party- Netflix 2018 was entirely a team effort. As a student-team, we learnt how to organize, plan and run an event completely on our own for the very first time. We brainstormed, came up with bright ideas and choose the best amongst them - “Netflix”- to be the theme for the party. From then on, decisions were made regarding, the décor, logistics, refreshments, sound, etc. We are particularly proud of the décor and setup, as it was all done in a day’s time. We experienced firsthand how planning and execution is a difficult task to pull off, as it involves a lot of intense time management skills and communication skills.

On the other hand, we felt we could have planned the execution of the program better, especially the flow of event, we thought this was the impact of starting the décor and setup work pretty late in the day.

To sum it up, we’ve pretty much learned the dos and don’ts regarding a lot of things- related to organizing a program from start to finish, like coordination, team work, management skills, etc. We learnt how to manage various departments together and when pushed, figured how- to and managed to get all our work done, within the mandated time period. All in all, it was a good experience and everyone, specifically for the FY’s, who said they thoroughly enjoyed this program. So it all paid off.

We thank Fr. Dominic, Fr. Francis and especially our course coordinator Rebecca Madame, as without their support, we, the S.Y.BVoc, S.Y.B.B.A and S.Y.B.Sc students wouldn’t have had the opportunity to organize such a special event.

It was a great learning experience for us to organize such an event. We look forward to the management giving us more opportunities in the future to organize in-college events, especially the upcoming annual fest ‘Mediathon’.

Careers and Communication Media - Workshop

In News

We had two student groups visiting us this month for a customized session on ‘Careers and Communication Media’. This talk session, coupled with a TV broadcast session, a visit to the sound studio and printing press, once again introduced TYBMM students to career options after the graduate in mass media.

The TYBMM Journalism students from Wilson College, liked the many aspects available today for students keen on being career journalists, be it sports, finance or broadcast. Anushka, a visiting student, went on to say, she’ll now be considering an internship or a further career specialization course before moving head-on into the field of journalism.

22nd Feb 2018 saw an enthusiastic group of TYBMM students from Patkar Varde College and their professor, Ms. Rimma Quadros as our guests for the two-hour program. This focused on journalism as a career, since some of the students were interning with local print and broadcast stations, as part of the course curricula. The lively interactive session, led by Dean Carol Andrade & Claudelle Moniz, introduced new media career opportunities, including technical aspects; so the teen visitors realize the vast career openings available for those who choose to be specialists in journalism, advertising or PR.

Prof. Quadros, said ‘Thank you, St Pauls Institute of Communication Education, for arranging the seminar on media careers. It was really very informative and interactive. I received a positive feedback from my students’.

The visits to the printing press were a big draw for the students, as they got to know more about the entire print - to- bookstore mechanism, something they learnt about recently. All in all, a good program to help garner insights on what next, after you graduate.
