April. This is the month when the final countdown begins. For some, it will be just another end to an academic sessions while for a few others, it would be the end to a roller-coaster journey that they feel had started only yesterday when they had entered the campus of NIT Rourkela, with a subtle disappointment of that NIT tag on their faces and their nudging parents by their side. While this sudden surge in reminiscence continues, NITR shall jump up to activity for the very last time in this scholastic year. For the Student Activity Center General Elections 2015-2016, where the common NITRian shall elect their choicest candidate to the administrative level for regulating the student affairs in the institute. While the major aspects about this event has been covered in last week’s article by Monday Morning, namely “Of NITR; For NITR; By NITR”, we bring to you a poll that has been suggested by our Hon’ble Director Prof. S. K. Sarangi Sir.
Isn’t it a wonderful temptation for people to get down their memory-lanes to relive the ‘good old days’? Of course, it is. This year, the students that NITR had cradled in its lanes and by-lanes were invited by the institute itself to join The First Annual Alumni Re-union. NITR paved a new path for its alumni not only to revive their memories but also to make an attempt to improve the alumni network of the institute. Now, how far NITR was successful in its maiden attempt in this regard is a matter of concern.
Much before the chain of farewell parties and good-bye get-togethers commence, the final years cherish their last days at the campus to the fullest in the final fest, International Students Meet.
Placements are said to be the nucleus of elite educational institutions. The epilogue of four years at the institute endows an opportunity to the ‘worthy populace’ to bag a job for themselves; courtesy, the Training and Placement Cell.
As spring onsets, the clement February gifts an aura that rekindles the campus for an altogether new NITRUTSAV of 2K15. Every year, novelty creeps in and the fest creates its own autonomous identity.
