List of Class Representatives The list of existing class representatives has been attached along with the list of SAC Members. Elections for the Class Representatives will be conducted in the upcoming week with the help of an election committee.
Elections of the Class Representatives The Class Representative elections represent a vital of the student body's democracy, as it is the class representatives that also represent the Student Council on many levels. The Class Representative elections, keeping in mind the forthcoming university cultural festival, Biswamil, will be held before 17 September 2014. The idea is to have a new body of Class Representatives working hand in hand with the Organizing Committee of Biswamil and the Student Council, starting their tenure with one of their most exciting and engrossing responsibilities, preparing them for what comes with the post. An Election Committee has been formed from within the Class Representatives who will ensure that the Class Representative elections are conducted within the stipulated time period, and are done so smoothly and transparently.
Procedure to Book Venues on Campus 1. E-mail the faculty coordinator by cc’ing Mr. Bivas Sen Gupta and the security in charge Mr. Sultan Singh. The e-mail should have reached the destination one day prior to the day of the event. The mail should also include in detail as to the purpose of booking the venue. 2. As soon as the faculty coordinator approves the students’ request, Mr.Bivas Sen Gupta will allocate a classroom and the security in charge will inform the security guard, who will then open the venue. 3.

Weekly Newsletter The idea of having a weekly newsletter is to inform the JGU student body about the upcoming events of the week. Through this newsletter, the council plans to keep the student body active and informed as to what is planned for them. This newsletter will also help the students of JGU to plan their weekend in a proper manner and will also help us achieve large student’s turnout for every event. This newsletter will cover all the on-campus events and also off-campus events which are related or are hosted by our university. This will include the following: Cultural Events Academic Events Important Student Body meetings Open houses with Student Council/Faculty/Staff Conferences Seminars Every Monday, the JGU student Body will receive an Email with the list of upcoming events in the week. Each event will have a short description and will also describe how it will help the students. We also plan to make an excel sheet of all the events in a week which will inform the students about the date, time & venue of each event and make it convenient for them. We plan to start this from 15 th September 2014 after seeking the necessary permissions and approvals.
