SP Jain School of Global Management celebrated its annual traditional Jaguar Spirit Week at its Dubai Campus from 28th October 2018 to 2nd November 2018 to instil campus pride and the spirit of togetherness. The Student Council, Committees, Volunteers and Happiness Ambassadors organised an array of activities throughout the week to engage the undergraduate students (our Jaguars).
Here are the highlights of the Spirit Week 2018:
Day 1: Sunday, 28th October - ‘D for Disco’
The excitement was palpable on Day 1 of the Spirit Week with the theme being ‘D for Disco’. The students dressed up in Retro fashion as they ‘jazzed’ up their styles, bringing Retro alive at the Dubai campus. The events kickstarted with the Happiness Ambassadors initiating their campaign ‘Letters of Love’, which welcomes letters of hope, encouragement and love, that will be shared with underprivileged children around the world. The Sports Club also organised knock-out rounds of table tennis, chess and FIFA tournaments during the day.
Day 2: Monday, 29th October - ‘Think Pink - Breast Cancer Awareness’
To mark the Breast Cancer Awareness Month and show their support, the students dressed up in pink on Day 2 to match the theme ‘Think Pink’ (Click here to see more photos). It was followed by an ‘Open Mic for a Cause’ where the Jaguars showcased their talent in music, dance and stand-up comedy.
