Phonathon is an initiative of Students’ Alumni Cell which helps in Institute development under the Endowment Campaign while serving as a platform for the alumni to give back to the alma mater. In various avenues like developing centers of excellence for innovative research, recruiting world-class faculties, students scholarships etc; this event benefits the institute. In our continuous efforts to expand the alumni network, bringing forward conversations of first year students with the alumni supports our efforts as well as provides the students with a unique opportunity to interact with the alumni as well as contribute to the development of the institute.
"One of the alumnus from 1965 batch asked me top 20 in what? India? I told him that kgp is already among top 5 in India, and he was amazed. He told me that he is keen to visit IITKGP again, as he never visited kgp back after his graduation."
"Varied feedbacks but most of the alumni were pretty concerned about the expected hike in the tuition fee.""
"It was an awesome experience , where I got to talk to the alumni and also got to learn a lot of things. I had really interesting conversations with the alumni, which made the whole event a lot of fun."
"It was a pretty good talk with one of the alumni. We could connect well, him being from the same town as mine. Overall, it was a great experience."
"Being a part of phonathon 2.0 was indeed an amazing experience. From that nervousness before making the first call, to the 'peace' later, it all felt great. I made a lot of new friends in the process, both from my batch and seniors alike. I was glad to know the impression IIT Kharagpur has left on the alumni, and their willingness to support and give back to their Alma Mater. A special thanks to Students' Alumni Cell for giving me the chance to be a part of it."
"It was quite a funda session for me with an alumnus who is an entrepreneur. He shared some of the insights and his own experiences.Do you have a dream? he asked. Don't worry about success or failure | Jump in | This is the time of your life when you should take risks. He was stressing the fact that it's you who matters. Its in the little steps that you take,result into success."
