Greetings from Student Alumni Relations Cell (SARC),
It has been been 6 years now, and SARC’s efforts to enhance relations between the students and the alumni of IIT Bombay have been advancing since its establishment. With no second thoughts have the efforts demonstrated fruitful results, which have helped the student community to gain enormous amount of rich experiences and positive traits. Also, on other side of the river, the alumni community has been in connection with its alma-mater even after graduating with a degree. SARC pillars have supported the bridge with your inevitable cooperation, nullifying the stretch between you and your lineage.
One such effort is the STUDENT ALUMNI MEET a.k.a. SAM, which is the annual flagship event of SARC, conducted in the first weekend of October. SAM will be entering its third phase this year, and with newer events with the same old motive of bringing student and alumni together, the event is scheduled to set off on 5th October 2013. In the two day voyage, alumni and students from all fields participate in events like Buddy Talks (to help students in overcoming the uncertainties, distinguished alumni from different sectors like Consultancy, Finance and Banking, FMCG, IT and Software etc are invited to give a talk pertaining to their sectors), Panel Discussion (thought provoking debates by alumni from various sectors on some of the despised, desired and debated topics in the institute today makes it an event not to be missed for sure), Beyond the Horizon (a platform for interaction with alumni who took the “Road Not Chosen” and followed their dreams), Break the Ice (face-to-face interaction between the ASMP mentors and their mentees) Cult Meet (cult is always an inescapable part of an iitbian, a cult person will surely love to get back to his/her cult group in the insti and relive again!), Sports Meet (indulge in the sports spirit once again with your batchmates and juniors), Mock Interviews (a chance where you/alumni get to train and give an experience of the job interviews to the placement junta/final year students) and many such events are hoisted.
This year, SAM has also undertaken a social initiative wherein we would be carrying out a social campaign in order to address and bring about a change at its own level. Besides this there will be a chance for students as well as alumni to interact with the well known Alumnus NGO’s along with student owned NGO’s.

We would appreciate your help by being a part of SAM this year and making it bigger by showing your presence in the event. If you also have any other idea that you would like to see in SAM 3.0, your valuable suggestions about the event are welcome through this form.
