I've been the coordinator for MyBFF second year running. And the experience has been quite good. It's a very straightforward fun event with not a lot of setting up or planning to do, and the turnout has been quite good.
He further added,
The event was cut short to 4:15 from 5 because of the guest lecture, because of which a lot of participants had to go back disappointed.
