SAHAYATRA-An inter-College Media Students Meet 2010

Posted in Media, My life by Shekhar on May 24, 2010
Main Administrative Building of Kathmandu University, Dhulikhel.


Since there was no networking and very rare interaction among the students of media and journalism & mass communication, so we have come up with a concept to bring all the students of the same discipline .
Our aim for doing so involves
• Acquainting them to the media professionals and the media environment as their future profession
• Creating platform for the students to share their creativity and ideas
• Strengthening the discipline of Journalism & mass communication and Media in Nepal by not just connecting the students but also the academicians

The numbers of colleges are increasing as ever in Kathmandu valley, including that of Journalism & mass communication. Bearing this fact in mind ‘SAHAYATRA’ is going to be organized by MSG, Kathmandu University on June 6th, 2010. This will be a grand platform for students to meet their contemporaries as well as get the benefit of interacting industry stalwarts and media academicians and developing relations with them.

Students’ attraction and interest toward education in mass communication and journalism is always an increasing trend. Every year lots of students get enrolled in different colleges affiliated to Tribhuvan University Board, Purvanchal University Board, Kathmandu University Board and Higher Secondary Education Board (HSEB) to study Mass Communication and Journalism. The present situation reveals that students who are pursuing their education in the mass communication field are not aware about the strength and space for improvement in the academic and professional field of the same discipline. Realizing the importance of a network, that should have been established much earlier, MSG shows its eagerness to take the first step towards this venture.

We are sure that the event will be very fruitful for all the participants through various activities. In the event we will invite experts from Print, Broadcast (TV+Radio), and related industries like Film, Advertising to speak at the program. Also, the dignitaries from within the university and department will address the program.
An hour long plenary will also be conducted where students and teachers will interact with each other on the topic “Multi disciplinary nature of media education.”
Pre-discussion Program:
This section will be held on the 3rd of June, 2010. Only one representative from each college will be participating in this discussion which will take place in Kathmandu Valley (the exact location and time will be informed later).
This discussion program will fix the agendas and plan of actions for the networking among different colleges. Since it takes long time for discussion regarding network, we have planned to sort it out few days earlier. Furthermore, it also helps us to get feedback regarding the event.
