SSETU also takes special care of students from outside Ahmedabad to help them feel comfortable and at home as they pursue their education.
Circle of Care
To assist fresh undergraduates through the challenging phase of transitioning from School to University, SSETU has instituted a very significant initiative, the Circle of Care. In this, the incoming new class is distributed into groups of 12 – 14 students from across the programmes in different Schools and Centres, to form a Friends Circle - the first group of friends for the incoming students. Each Friends Circle is paired with a Faculty Advisor and a Student Mitr (or friend) who is a senior student. The goal is to provide incoming students with a support system that offers friendship, academic advice as well as guidance in adjusting to the University life. The Circle of Care also includes Programme Chairs, the University Counsellor and the Career Development Centre to provide additional academic and career guidance and emotional support, as needed.
