Beyond Academics

At G.I.C.A. we are cognizant that young students need to socialize, participate and express their innate selves in order to acquire an appropriate balance that will tangibly improve the quality of their academic outlook and experience. Several social, cultural and literary activities are planned but not to the detriment of on-going academics.

The term commences with a ‘Party – Ice breaking session’ for our newly enrolled students – a tradition of true Hospitality and a way to say Welcome to G.I.C.A

Theme Lunches, blending cultures and cuisines and celebrating festivals to create the right ambiance will be organized by students under the guidance of faculty members.

Theme Dinners will showcase our Institute, on a larger scale, to the world outside and students will have a chance to display their professional skills, entrepreneurial talent and managerial aptitude. These events will be conceptualized, planned and implemented by the students as a team, giving them a splendid opportunity to prove a point to themselves.

Annual Study Tours would be conducted as a getaway from the academic routine while acquainting students with the commercial aspects of hospitality and cultural aspects of tourism.

Quizzes, cultural, literary and hospitality-based competitions at intra and inter-collegiate levels, provide students with wide and varied possibilities to express and fulfill themselves.

Students will also be addressed by guest speakers and achievers from hospitality and allied industries, participate in field visits, topographical tours, attend workshops and visit trade
exhibitions to keep abreast of the dynamic ‘real world’ of hotels, food and beverage.

Outgoing students would be felicitated at the Annual Valedictory Function and their performance would be recognized by presenting awards for excellence in academics, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

At G.I.C.A, we truly believe that such co and extra-curricular activities are the only way that the highest intelligence of the human mind can unfold!
