well alot of colleges emphasize a tad too much on extra-curriculars these days, for whichever reasons that they do.Given the rigors of med school, what does shifa offer to alleviate the presures of studies on med students?

I mean are there any food festivals,fun fairs,field trips,sports days,plays,concerts,parties etc etc?
Anything like the usual stuff we had at school? I know shifa college has an attached hospital so these things cant possibly be on campus, but are these there at all? Or is it just studies studies and studies?

Fun things at Shifa? hmm...Well let's see every year during 1st term there are 2 back to back sports days. Aside from that there is the occasional class field trip although that really depends on your class representatives as they're the ones that are generally responsible for planning them. There was supposed to be a fun fair this year although it was canceled due to security risks or some other equally silly reason. Aside from these types of random things there is generally table tennis set up in the main lobby, which seems to be a big hit with some people.
I've heard there's an annual talent show at Shifa that's usually fun. Or is that just one of those rumors?
Yes, there is a talent show--I forgot to mention that earlier. It generally includes short videos, skits, singing acts, etc. There's usually a fairly good turnout of students especially since the non-educational activities at Shifa are few and far between.
how do u become a class representatives?

and i cant believe their are no parties etc or whatever.
common, i cant afford to go back to canada every weekend just to party
There's an election for class representatives towards the beginning of the year. The exact day that it happens is pretty random and it'll probably be during a break between classes. Each "candidate" will walk around the class and try to tell as many people as they can to vote for them and get their friends to do the same for maybe 10-15 minutes. There may or may not be impromptu speeches followed by elections, which are really just based on who you like better...haha.

There is 1 representative for the guys and 1 for the girls---ya know to keep the gender mixing to a minimum #wink
The first thing i saw when i walked in was a table tennis setup, lol. At that moment i told self "Self this is the college for me".#laugh
oh great dude......
u can play five years of table tennis everyday and then go on to become an olympic champion at table (a lot of sarcasm involved)....
seriosly dude.....
i guess i'll try to have to become a class representative....just so i can teach people how to live a life...

p.s. sorry, no offence to my about to be senior " shifaians who can only think of playing table tennis all day in that main lounge"
Most of the guys I know at Shifa play bball, soccer, and cricket pretty regularly as long as we're not having tests.

I would prefer the three sports Mastahriz mentioned plus tennis(although i dont think there are any civilian tennis courts in Pakistan).

Is there enough snow in murree to snowboard?
There are definitely tennis courts in Islamabad. Two of my friends are always talking about how they played tennis over the weekend.

No idea about the snowboarding. I wish though... I totally wish.
hey mr.Pride

A tennis court near Shifa would be great.
As long as there is a adequate amount of snow.#happy
MalamJaba (i dont know how to spell it) is a place somewhere in the north of pakistan and i think u can snowboard and skii there.Its a decent 5-7 hour drive from islamabad. But i guess these days its not safe to go there because of some sort of unrest in the northern areas. (i really dont know what,but thats why our school trip was cancelled)
Has anything changed at Shifa concerning extra-cirriculars at shifa? What about going to LUMS Olympiad?

hmm wd u have time for thsese as studies r soooo hard
thts gd to hear that i had a view that med studies r really very tough
Yes, you would.

Good to hear. A whole team needs to go to the Olympiad from an institution. One can't go alone. I hope we have time and resources to do so.
