“LET IT ALL OUT”  Session

With the purpose of letting our students a chance to air their ideas and express their thoughts related to college life, ICNZ holds the “LET IT ALL OUT” Session once in every two months.

Two “LET IT ALL OUT” sessions were held during the first week of April for all Monday/Tuesday and Wednesday/Thursday batches. Students were given a chance to discuss matters related to their college life in this open forum. Some interesting and practical suggestions were made by the students during both the sessions to improve their experience at ICNZ.

ICNZ values the suggestions of the students for its improvement to make the college a truly “home away from home”. “Let it all out” sessions strengthen the foundations of building a student centric atmosphere within the college. Many thanks for the resource personnel and the students who took part and made these two events a success.

During this session, Students were given certificates for attending “Empowerment Attitude Workshops” that were held in the beginning of the year. This workshop was well attended and serves the purpose of instilling skills related to emotional control and adaptibility to the new environment in addition to other skills.

Some of the Level 7 students receiving their certificates from the trainer: Nalin Gupta

All the Level 5, 6 and 7 students of ICNZ who took part in the workshop on both the days received certificates.

Apart from classroom studies, ICNZ supports students in terms of improving skills and attitude with the help of a range of activities including workshops as above. Students are encouraged to make the best use of opportunities and add value to their lives apart from classroom based studies.

Interesting Read

Apple’s first logo was a complex picture, a tribute to Isaac Newton sitting under an apple tree, captioned with a phrase from Wordsworth: “Newton…a mind forever voyaging through strange seas of thought…alone”, with a tag line containing the brand name: Apple Computer Co. The apple shape was introduced not long after, with a bite taken out of it to increase brand recognition, first with rainbow colors and later in monochromatic tones.
