With the beginning of the academic year and new faces all around the institute, the freshers’ welcome ceremonies have been doing the rounds, this month. Coincidentally, falling on the eve of teachers’ day, the freshers’ celebration of the civil engineering department saw all the seniors and juniors students, actively participating in the celebration.
Though the events started an hour late than the scheduled time, it didn’t affect the enthusiasm of the students in putting up a great show to welcome the newbies of the institute. The celebration started with the first year students, filling up papers with out-of-the-box questions, competing for the Mr. and Ms. Fresher title. A sophomore, next, came onto the stage and captivated the audience with the beautiful synchronization of his voice and the guitar, which was followed by many freshmen, singing popular numbers and entertaining the audience.
Amidst a lot of cheering from the audience, the girls of the first year, grooved to popular Bollywood songs, in a group, raising the spirit of the audience.
The entire gala was followed by the august presence of the faculty of the Civil Engineering Department, who addressed the gathering, to complement the aura of the festivity of the place. A cake cutting ceremony followed the greeting card distribution and felicitation of the Head of the Department, Prof.S.K.Sahu, who shared his words of wisdom with the students.
The celebration ended on a positive note, after the Mr. and Ms. Fresher titles were given away to Aryan Gupta and Shibani Biswal respectively, amidst a lot of cheering and clapping from the audience, with refreshments being made available to everyone present.
