DSA has successfully conducted 3 seminars for the AY 2019-20 for PU students as mentioned:

Online Singing Competition

Team DSA conducted Online Singing Competition for the students of School of Commerce on 16th of April, 2020.The main Motto of this initiative was to motivate the students with their talents which can build their confidence and also bring them together during this Lock down period.

It is well known that singing is a natural anti-depressant, and lowers the stress levels. We as a team observed that our students are getting panic due to the present Pandemic situation through social media and news; hence we used the same online method to get motivated and to bring them together for singing competition.

Online JAM Competition

Team DSA conducted Online Just a Minute (JAM) Competition for the students of School of Law (SOL) on April 24th, 2020. It is hard to stay focused on studies for the students due to the anxiety and depression due to the pandemic and we thought to encourage our students to participate in many activities, hence this initiative.

This event motivate the students with their fluency, accuracy and time management skills which can build their confidence and also bring them together during this Lock down period due to COVID 19.

The JAM session helps the students to improve their communication skills and enhances the confidence and also it helps the introvert and shy students to speak in an open forum with the topic given.

Three students are selected as they gave their best by their active participation and won the Competition. Overall, it was a different experience for the students and indeed the students demanded more sessions to be conducted hereafter.

Online Counselling sessions

Team DSA initiated Online counselling sessions from April 13th  April, 2020 till date as we observed that the students are facing sudden unforeseen challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Faculty rapidly reimagined their courses and moved to online and remote delivery of instruction. Our students have quickly transitioned to taking classes online and Hostel students moved back to their homes with a tentative announcement without much luggage.

Counselling sessions are conducted on daily basis and covered about 45 classes so far.

Loss and disappointment are at the forefront of emotions as our students grieve the experiences they will not get to have what they had. Faculty, staff and students have adjusted to new schedules, new routines, working from home, and managing a multitude of other issues alongside the blurring lines of personal and professional lives hence the Counselling sessions, Online Yoga pranayama sessions, JAM Competition, Online Singing Competition made some difference to the well-being of the students and staff.
