Happy farewell, dear students!

It was a day when the students had intense mixed feelings: at one moment the students felt delighted because their arduous journey through the rigours of the curriculum had to come an end, and at the same moment they felt gloomy because they were about to leave the College they so dearly loved and adored. The occasion was the farewell ceremony organized by the  pre-final year students to their seniors who would soon be stepping out of  Vidya. The pre-final year students organized the elegant ceremony  to bid farewell to their seniors on 03 June 2022.

The programme was not a college event. The various Depts organised the event separately in separate venues. The students of CE Dept organized the programme in the North Block Courtyard, CSE Dept in the Main Seminar Hall, ECE Dept in the South Block Courtyard, EEE Dept in the South Block Drawing Hall, ME Dept in the College Auditorium, PE Dept in the North Block Classroom, and MCA Dept in the South Block Seminar Hall.

All the attendees who spoke on the occasion, commended the outgoing students for smoothly taking on responsibilities and setting a remarkable example for their juniors despite the situation around them. The pre-final year students wished their seniors good luck. They also enlivened the ceremony with singing, dancing, motivational speeches and by felicitation talks. The Head, faculty and staff of the Depts attended the ceremony in their respective venues.

One could sense a lot of emotion and nostalgia among students one watched them taking photographs and capturing images at the different corners of the college.

The Editorial Team of  News & Events joins the entire Vidya family in wishing all our outgoing students happiness and success in all future endeavours. Let every ‘Vidyaite’ be a  good ambassador of  Vidya!
