ANUPAM CHATTOPADHYAY: What is the role JU Alumni going to play ?
This was asked at our yahoo groups.

Reply from souraj das:

Wonderful!
What else is expected of West Bengal? The brightest and the best of Bengal in action once again.
Cheers JU! Don’t let anything happen in Bengal. It is your democratic right to block progress, spoil other people’s endeavors, cause pain and trouble to everyone.
I am sure, Mr. moderator will block my mail.
Cheers!
Do share your thought on this.

Politics in campus is not necessary

Feedback from Alumni (Taken from JUAlumni yahoo groups )

>>Abhirupa:
FETSU is causing trouble again. When will this end in JU? When will these immature students grow up?

>>Arpan:
the students for their limited vision. I personally have noticed such a response from the alumni over what is going on rarely. We as alumni should do our part on what is actually beneficial for JU, where probably we had earlier taken lesser initiative, after passing.
Net result, the same things continue, over and over again, and the academic culture gets affected.
Net result is, lesser known colleges are actually faring way beter than JU in terms of “Quality Placement Opportunities”, “Career Prospects” and not just a “job”.
The difference is what even I as a student failed to comprehend (except the salary difference) because of a lack in guidance from alumni. These factors must be drilled into the minds of our juniors, before we can actually expect things to change.

I hope the current students who are in JU, see the light and actually make use of the opportunity of being in such a good institution, without making a mockery of its limitations (faculty). The time when we could have said, “Having passed through WBJEE to get into JU, we can rest on our past laurels” was never there, and frankly, is a statement many of our seniors in the industry would hold in contempt.

JU used to be ranked among the top 10, unfortunately, even that is a story none in the corporate sector is willing to take seriously nowdays (despite the latest ranking based on 1 criteria, research by faculty & doctorate students only where JU ranked 6th).

Change is seriously needed, for the better, else very soon we’ll see the the even lesser known colleges in West Bengal overtaking us.

What do you think?

Application procedure for a duplicate certificate from Jadavpur University

June 24, 2009 in ASK

Question: I need to know the procedure for getting a duplicate of the B.E. certificate from JU. Can anyone please advise?

The procedure is as follows….
1)You need to lodge a general diary for missing certificate/or marksheet to the police station and you will get a docket number.

2)if you have any xerox copy of those docs then contact examination section (Aurobindo Building, 1st floor) with an application attached with those docs, Else you can submit your application without docs which will take more time.

remember that General diary is a must.It requires at least 3 weeks to get your duplicate certificate from the submission of the application.
