An excursion trip to Kullu-Manali-Manikaran was organized by Faculty of Dental Sciences from 8th to 12th April 2017 for BDS Interns accompanied by three faculty members. Students had a fun filled and adventurous experience during mountain climbing, ice-skating and river rafting. The DJ Night and Bonfire were the highlights as faculty and students shared their experiences and enjoyed the lighter moments getting a break from the clinical sessions. Visit to amusement parks, Hidimba temple and Manikaran Sahib also added to the joyful and memorable experience.
Getting to know your students on a more personal level during a trip is a marvelous way to build a rapport with them that will benefit for a long time afterwards. Students who have a personal connection with a teacher are a lot more motivated and show more participation in the class. Their behaviour in general improves, as they suddenly feel more connected to the teacher. Keeping this in mind SGT University decided to take the scholars of the University for a trip to the hills of Chamba. This trip was actually organized to honor the students who brought laurels to the University. Such trips definitely boosts the morale and motivate the fellow students to perform better.
