Our Guests had wonderful words and citations to give the extra boost to the new entrants, who looked a bit dazed but were put at complete ease by them. They also motivated the new entrants to explore the opportunities which they get in the college life. The Guest with their words of wisdom, asked the students to urge themselves a little more than the usual to come out as complete winners.

The clipping of International Summer Schools attended by our students was presented to the gathering which was followed by certificate distribution to the students and faculty members of International Summer Schools.
