I welcome you to the all new CSATimes website- the forum of the Council for Student Affairs, BITS Pilani Goa Campus that will serve a lot of purposes and will act as a very good connection between the students and the CSA. A lot of problems had occurred on this website leading to its failure a couple of times in the previous semester, but, after having spent numerous hours in rebuilding this website from scratch, I sincerely hope that you love it and all its features. So, let me explain these features a little:
Sample Paper Portal: As I had promised, you can now find the past years’ question papers on the library ftp(10.1.9.224) which makes it faster for you to access them compared to the previous Dropbox.
Screening Shoutout: (The fun part) This is the page where we will let you know about the movie that we are trying to show next, in the auditorium.
Hall of Fame: Again, as I had already said, a “Hall of Fame” tab has been introduced on this website which will feature our friends/colleagues who have brought laurels for themselves as well as the institute. Now, that can be any achievements like winning a sports competition, topping Civil Services Exam/CAT or clearing something as big as GSoC. Just keep the name of BITS flying high!
Invitations: We get quite a lot invitations for many college fests and competitions. So….. how should I let you know about them? BITSmail? Nope! That is just too boring and this tab will serve the purpose.
FAQ: How can you get permissions for your parents to stay with you in your room? Or, how do you book a room for them in the VGH? How do you access the BITS Library online? And, whom do you tell if you have a brilliant idea for our campus?(That’s me, btw :p) Well, well, well…If you have these sorts of questions in your mind, the FAQ tab will help you get answers to all of them. I thought of documenting all the frequently asked questions and their answers in a simple manner so that you can access all the necessary information from anywhere, very easily.
RTI: The RTI(Right To Information) tab has now been revived and now you can ask any questions that you think need to be answered. We will answer your queries as soon as possible!
Grievances: If you have any problem which is not being resolved since many days and you want to bring it to the attention of the CSA, you are most welcome to use the Grievances tab. And, I promise you that it will be attended to, as soon as possible.
Suggestions: Nothing is perfect! And, I believe in the fact that there is always room for improvement. If you have any suggestion for the CSA or the CSATimes, do come forward and use this feature to let us know about it. We are ready to improve existing facilities or bring in something new; provided that you suggest!
There are some features of this website which are still under construction but will soon be working. I am sorry that I am going a bit slow on this as I am already spending more than six hours a day in CSA-related work but I promise to finish this website soon too. I will try to write weekly/biweekly on the CSATimes to keep you people informed about what we are up to and recent developments. If you have any query, you can call/ mail/ Whatsapp me or just come directly to my room(AH4-253). I will be glad to help you out 😀
Till the next time!
Your General Secretary,
“What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly……..”
