Student Mentorship Programme

    The Student Mentor Program is run by Sunshine, the counseling cell of IITH. The student mentors are selected by the Sunshine counsellors through an interview and are trained in basic counselling skills thereby, making them competent to help other students in an unbiased manner and enabling them to run the program in an efficient way.

    The student mentorship program is aimed at offering the incoming students, an interface to understand and interact with the diverse student community at IITH. With the institute having a strict anti-ragging policy, the program also doubles up as an excellent ice-breaker.

    The objectives of the student mentor program include:
    • Welcoming and orienting the new students of IITH.
    • Guiding the new students about life at IITH campus, the Student Gymkhana and its activities, college fests, etc.
    • Providing academic guidance to the students.
    • Enforcing the anti-ragging rule.

    On the whole, the program aims to provide the incoming students with a cordial environment to make their transition to the IITH way of life as smooth and fun-filled as possible.
