Saints start second half of BCIHL schedule with tough challenge at home against SFU

first_img“We’ll need to find our legs quickly on Saturday night and play a smart, disciplined game if we’re going to beat a very good opponent.”The 12-0 Saints have faced SFU once this season, charging out to a five-goal lead on the road on November 3rd and holding on for a 5-3 victory.That win ended the Clan’s 25-game home unbeaten streak, so there’s no doubt that SFU will be motivated to return the favour. With a victory on Saturday night, the Saints would set a new BCIHL record for consecutive wins with 13.Selkirk tied the existing 12-game record when they defeated the University of Victoria in their final game of 2012 in early December.Dubois said that one benefit of the long break was the chance for players to rehab injuries and return to the ice fully healthy for the stretch drive of the regular season.“With the exception of Stephen Saretsky, who hasn’t played yet this season, we’re 100 percent healthy and ready to go,” Dubois explained.”We may make some choices based on what we see from the guys this week in terms of their conditioning, but it’s good to have all our guys available for this first time since early in the season.”SFU is led offensively by forwards Ben Van Lare and Jono Ceci, who finished first and second in BCIHL scoring last season.The dynamic duo is joined up the Clan’s top line by three-year WHL product Brenden Silvester, who joined the team at Christmas and has already scored five times in two appearances. There’s no easing into the second half of the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League regular season for the Selkirk College Saints.The Saints play host to second-place Simon Fraser University Clan Saturday at 7:30 p.m. at the Castlegar Recreation Complex.However, before the Clan can ready themselves to knock off the undefeated Saints, the Burnaby-based club must take to the road Friday for a date south of the 49th parallel against the Eastern Washington Eagles in Cheney, Wash.“SFU certainly had the jump on us in terms of getting back onto the ice, and they’ll be playing their sixth game since Christmas while we’ll be playing our first,” said Selkirk head coach Jeff Dubois.The Clan sit just three points back in the league standings at 10-1-1.“That adds to the challenge for us, but it’s not going to be used as an excuse,” Dubois added.last_img read more

They were,On May 3, around 70 students of the first and second year of the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) course gathered at the Anil Surendra Modi School of Commerce (ASMSOC), situated in Mumbai’s plush Vile-Parle area, though their academic year had ended three days ago, on April 30. They were reappearing for their final exam because they had failed to complete the mandatory 80 per cent attendance for the year. The stringent rules of the institute, however, did not upset the students. They knew they had been introduced to instil discipline in them. “The 80 per cent attendance rule is a good thing,” says second year student Vihaan Hingorani, a football enthusiast. “We have a good balance of study and sports.”Dean Sangita Kher has a white board in front of her desk decorated with the trophies her lads have won in sports and debating competitions. “Twelve thouand,” she says, pointing towards a figure written on the board. “This year, we have received almost 12,000 applications from across the country for 600 first-year seats. It’s going to be very tough.” The students are selected through a common entrance test. With its impeccable academic record, ASMSOC, within 12 years of its founding in 2007, has become one of the most sought-after colleges teaching business at an undergraduate level in India. Not just business administration, students are also introduced to various other subjects such as environment management, socio-political and current affairs as well as finance and marketing. Data analytics is a core subject in the third year. Students are taught how to identify the right strands from the data of tens of thousands of people.

No wonder, ASMSOC alumni have launched 45 start-up companies in the past three years.advertisement Shade of Learning: Students at Christ University, Bengaluru.

Thecombination of theory and practicals prepares the students for real-world challenges and problems. The students’ exchange programme has opened up the world to students. Likewise, students from Germany and France come to study ASMSOC courses. Anna Trabert, from the University of Bamberg in Germany, has been one such student. Her business plan for Rajasthani bangles has received wide appreciation. On a High Note: Students exiting the shopping area at the Amity University campus in Noida.

Hingorani recalls how he used to spend most of his time at home before he joined ASMSOC. “Now, I am very active in college life. When you see well-spoken faculty members, you learn a lot of them. I can even discuss the football World Cup with them,” he says.ASMSOC placements have been impressive, with companies such as Ernst & Young, Future First, Nomura, DE-Shaw, Tresvista and Barclays visiting the campus. The highest package received last year was Rs 14 lakh.Kher firmly believes that knowledge is the key to success. She says her students know what they want to do. “This confidence comes from knowledge,” she says. “You stand out because you know how to manage things.” Prof. Sangita Kher, Dean, ASMSOCHow is ASMSOC different from others?Unique syllabus designed by experts in the industry and academics, experienced faculty members who are leaders in the corporate worldInnovation in teaching, use of technology, field work; students have access to the Bloomberg terminal to work on live data; examiners from corporate sectorMore focus on enhancing skills; use of Excel, statistics in teachingStudents’ research papers published in various UGC approved journalsThrust on sports, cultural functions and incorporating social responsibility among the students.New initiatives in the past three yearsNew courses in business analytics, marketing analytics, investment analysis, portfolio management, wealth management, risk management and brand managementStudents were asked to study the issues of hospital waste, dumping grounds and destructing mangroves and come up with solutions.
