You may be aware that in the recent years the cases of academic probation have gone up and there is serious concern among the administration for the same. This is resulting in a lot of degree extensions as well. Rather than curbing cultural or technical activities or even blaming them we wish to develop an academic culture which can coexist with all activities. We want your opinion so here is a short survey so please do fill it!!!
Student Mentorship Program takes pleasure in releasing its new logo. This year we plan not only to be known as working for freshers but working on affecting the personality of entire student community. Our initiatives will speak more on that...visit smp.iitd.ac.in for more details

SMP takes pleasure in announcing
This initiative is a collaboration between the Student Mentorship Programme and the Humanities Department of IIT Delhi. The problem here was JEE is conducted in Hindi as well as English Medium and the medium of instruction after coming to IIT is English only. This leads the students qualifying from Hindi medium in deep despair. This leads to a serious visible effect in their academic performance. A lot of other st...udents also face issues in English.
Key Feature of this initiative :
1) Firstly there will be a language proficiency test(LPT) for all freshers during Orientation.
2) After this there will be a compulsory Language Workshop for 15 to 20 days from professionals from humanities department(Coordinated by Prof. Paroma Sanyal) for all those who are from Hindi medium and those who need them on the basis of LPT.
3) After this MRC will assign mentors from 2nd year and 3rd year as Language Mentors.
These will be trained by Humanities Department and they will engage concerned freshers in weekly training sessions which will be based on “Learning through Fun” .
4)This is in lieu with NLN 100 for freshers. So that once they are up to a certain level in language , they can comfortably adjust with their peers in NLN 101.
5)We will also welcome those who are not freshers and still wish to undergo this programme for their development.
6) There will be an LPT at the end of NLN 100 and if there is still need we will continue with this in the second sem.
7) Apart from this an app will be developed linked to the IITD insti app by Board for Student Welfare-BSW, IIT Delhi which will act as an Hindi to English dictionary for technical terms common to first year courses.

Nice work by BSP. Students coming to IITD ....have look at this before you choose your branch. Dont just focus on placements ,see what your branch has to offer. To look at the course structure and various courses offered in each department visit the link below http://www.iitd.ac.in/…/de…/files/semsch/CouStudy_201617.pdf
With the JEE Advanced results out, and counselling in full swing, as evidenced by the flurry of activity on the various forums, blogs and groups on the Internet..., we thought back to the time when we were confused post 12th graders, greeted by branches which seemed no more than a cluster of nebulous ideas, without a clear picture of what it would actually be like to study them. So, we decided to publish a series of articles, each written by seniors, addressing various angles of their department at IIT Delhi. Through these writeups, which have also been posted on some forums and counselling groups on Facebook and elsewhere on the Internet, we hope to translate the experiences of these seniors into giving prospective freshmen a better ‘feel’ of each program. Do share these writeups if you know of students who’ve just cleared the Advanced and are currently going through this phase!

his/her department and volunteer to help the JEE qualified candidates. Volunteers should be present in IIT or near.
Also, all those who'll come will have to attend a meeting on 13th, where we can discuss on how we'll proceed with the session and about further arrangements. (Also, You can fill the form if you are not present on 13th, we'll work on some alternative)

Great effort by BSP....freshers should have a look as mostly they will be affected by this by and large.
About two weeks ago, the SAC Facebook page saw a flurry of activity in response to a post pertaining to a proposal discussed and passed by the BAP. The agenda? ...Reducing the credit limit per semester to 22.
BSP had then promised a well researched article about this issue, to try to understand what the BAP wished to achieve, and the nature of the student community's opposition to this move.
We present to you a comprehensive report about this proposal, and urge everyone to read this article, for this issue affects the entire undergraduate student community extensively, for better or for worse.
Feel free to give us your feedback in the comments.

First session conducted by SMP to welcome mentors to the team and brain storming on improving the system. Sincere thanks to mentors and faculty coordinators to be a part of it. Looking forward to more of such sessions .☺☺
On 8th May, Student Mentorship Program, IIT Delhi held its induction and award ceremony. The main motive of this session was to guide the newly-appointed mentor...s and to felicitate the previous mentors and MRC position holders who had successfully carried out their duties during their tenure.
The session started with an informal motivational session by Mr. Shashank Bishnoi, an IIT Alumnus himself. He primarily focused on inspiring the newly appointed mentors by a pep talk and soon had the crowd involved with his engaging discussions on emotions faced by freshers and their regrets in case they "misuse their independence". He also focused on the most important ‘precaution’ that a mentor must take which is not to impose his/her views on the corresponding mentees but rather guide them towards taking their own decisions. Using his excellent oratory skills and vivid descriptions, he managed to clearly establish the sanctity of the relationship between a mentor and his/her freshers.
This was followed by an award ceremony where the efforts of the hardworking mentors and MRC coordinators was duly acknowledged. Award for BEST COORDINATOR, OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTION TO MRC and PRIDE OF MRC was given to Shuchi Maheshwari, Sarthak Sethi and Atul Verma respectively. This was followed by some traditional Do’s and Don’ts and new practises to be inculcated from this year onwards. Also, the new MRC secy Ravi Choudhary was officially handed the beacon for the next year.
The session was concluded by a greatly inspiring address by Prof. Sangeeta Kohli, the President of BSW. The guests then proceeded to the delicious refreshments waiting outside the hall. All-in-all, it capped off a great session which would certainly help the new mentors to fulfill their responsibility in a commendable manner.
The list of awardees was as follows:
EXCELLENCE IN MENTORSHIP FOR 2016-2017:
Krishn Gopal Rajput
Inamul haq azad
Niladri Shekhar Mandal
