Sep 04, 2017 | Ankit Kumar Panda
With the aim of aiding the freshmen in the unknown land and to instill a feeling in them for their respective departments, branch welcome parties are organized at the beginning of each academic year. The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering welcomed the newbies on a rainy evening at the EC seminar hall on a Saturday night. The evening began with anchors Ayush, Barnali, Swostik and Sravya welcoming the professors and freshers to the event and giving a short overview of the evening performances.
Professor Tarun Kumar Dan, HOD of the department of Electronics and Communication Engineering was then welcomed upon the dais to share his views with the freshers. Followed by this, was the speech of Professor K.K. Mahapatra, ex-HOD of the department, in which the major focus was on the progress of the department and its rich history. Also gracing the event were other professors from the Electronics department. The freshmen were motivated and inspired after hearing the words from the senior professors.
Then came the turn of the first year girls, who mesmerized the audience with their singing. Next in line was the lyrical style group dance by the first year boys and following it was an enthralling wrapping by Laxman, Samay, and Kishore. The evening also showcased a girls group dance, which had the potential to indulge the audience in a semi classical performance. Showcasing their musical talent then were Girish and Subhasish. The last performance of the evening was a group dance by the boys. At the end of the performances, food packets were distributed. The first year students were given questionnaires and based on their answers, Bibhupad and Triya were given the Mr. and Miss fresher’s award respectively.
There were some minor technical glitches while the event progressed otherwise the event was quite a successful one. The sophomores having organized the event successfully were seen enjoying the evening thoroughly. Team MM congratulates the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering for having hosted a successful Welcome Ceremony and wishes the Department with all the luck in its future endeavors.
