The MCSA is the officially recognised student body of MICA. All other committees come under the purview of the MCSA. (It is also the only committee that cannot be dissolved !) The MCSA is the liaison between the students and the administration. It has been in existence since MICA's inception, and consists of three members - President, General Secretary and Treasurer. The selection process is completely democratic and members get elected by the students.
Everything, from taking sick students to the hospital to things like monitoring academic curricula , getting funds allocated for student activities and addressing student grievances - essentially, we are the body responsible for the overall 'well being' of the MICA student .
It gives you a chance to go on a power trip! Jokes apart, we get used to handling intense pressure situations all year long, something that will be a learning experience for a lifetime. Handle 300+ individuals on issues as trivial as "toilet flushes not working" to really serious ones like "can we have more media electives?", and you can take on any situation life throws at you. You need to have a really cool head and some strong shoulders to be in the MCSA.
