After a month in the institute, the freshmen were introduced to the club culture of NIT Rourkela. They attended orientations and inductions of various clubs. One such orientation that started with a lot of expectations from the juniors was that of SPIC MACAY.

After a spreading a word about SPIC MACAY and its aim to develop and promote Indian culture, students, both from the second and the first years came for the orientation. This was held in LA 101 on the 29th of august. First it all started with a nice presentation from the faculty advisor of SPIC MACAY Prof. Nihar Nayak who had come to address the students and to inculcate in them the importance of the promotion of our Indian culture in this era. It was followed by an interactive session between the current members of the club and the ones who had come for inductions, where the club members spoke about their experiences, their best moments and about the importance of the club. Through all this the students were made aware about the different areas of event management, their future responsibilities and the way to tackle problems that they may encounter in future. The president, Rishab Tripathi, a pre-final year student, talked about how science was connected to the different dance forms and how everything about Indian culture had a deep meaning in everyone's life.

The induction process was started right after this interactive session, which included a paper based test, which was common for all the students of different years. The test included many questions which reflected the freshmen's knowledge about the Indian art form, culture and tradition. It tested them for their eligibility in managing different things, their individuality and their leadership qualities.  

The best part of this year's orientation was that the students took part very intently and were more interactive according to the President of the club. There was a huge difference between last year's and this year's inductions, as last year there just a presentation about the club and it's plans, but this year there was interaction and accumulation of new ideas from the freshmen for the promotion of Indian art and culture.

It was a very calm and well organised orientation, which left the students joyful and happy interacting and experiencing the club culture of our institute. There are many events that are going to be organised by the club this year, in every festival to come.
