‘City wale’ need hostel too.


Heres an interesting fact for the freshies.
In the good old days(by good old days I mean up until the last semester) anyone could stay at the hostel temporarily and that was and always has been such an important part of our student life.But off course the poor freshies wouldn’t know that because of the cursed B.A.N.

Why on earth was this ban imposed you must be wondering?
Well, It’s a weird thing thag CAN be posted here but ill prefer not to. Ask anyone in TIP, they’ll know what it was and you’re guaranteed to have an awkward conversation.

Anyways Coming to the point, the temporary hostel stay always always has been one of the charms of TIP life. Whether You have a group assignment or presentation to do, got an hourly or an important quiz to prepare for or you’re a TDT student falling behind on the weaving. The solution used to be simple. stay at hostel a day and Tadaa! Problem solved. and it even came with the extra perk of sitting back in smoking area at the time of sunset, relaxing,having a peaceful cup of chaye and just enjoying the away-from-the-city peace for a moment.

But then ‘IT’ happened. The management found out whatever they found * we all know what it was*. Decided to punish the rest of 398 students for the actions of 2 of them because that perfectly makes SOO MUCH sense right? *Might’ve been more than 2 depending on their preference iykwim*

Now it’s been a semester and god knows how tough it has been. Whenever we have a hostellite in a group assignment, the group co-ordination becomes impossible resulting in even worse marks than you’d normally get. Even for design students. With the workload from all the courses they could relax about weaving to a certain degree because all they had to do is stay for a day and complete it. but they can’t do it anymore because of the absolutely brilliant step of banning night stays for day scholars.

Now if you look at this situation from an outsiders perspective. This would STILL look like a very unreasonable ban taking away such an important part of campus life from students and for something about which you can’t even be 100% sure that it even DID happen.

BHAI AGAYA HAI CONSTITUTION 2012-2014

Those who read the last article would know that it made a lot of negative ruckus around TIP; mostly around TISF. The president TISF came to me and blatantly told me that my information was wrong.

Colours + Art + Creativity = Design

People think that design is styling. Design is not style. It’s not about giving shape to the shell and not giving a damn about the guts. Good design is a renaissance attitude that combines technology, cognitive science, human need, and beauty to produce something that the world didn’t know it was missing.

– Paola Antonelli

Hats off!! To the wonderful work done by 3rd year Design, enhancing campus beauty with their wonderful assignments by redefining Zain Mustafa’s idea of TIP’s new look.
