The freshers of Acharya Institute of Technology were welcomed in a novel way by their seniors who put up a grand show comprising cultural events and stalls, showcasing the various facilities available on the campus.

The aim of the grand ‘Fresher’s Day’ event was to provide each and every new student a clear idea on what their life would be like in the coming years on campus, the opportunities that would be available to them to showcase their talents and the activities of different student clubs.

Besides, the event also aimed to acquaint them with the rules and regulations of the institution. Each department on the campus put up exclusive stalls flaunting their past achievements.

There were departmental forums as well along with the curricular and extracurricular activities of each department including all sorts of technical events, future aspirations and innovative ideas along with projects. Every part of the exhibition gave an idea of vibrant college life to the freshers who were accompanied by their parents.


The fete began with the electronics and communication department opening their stall for the visitors. Keeping their focus on the departmental activities carried out under the banner of ‘Spectra’, they had decorated their stall with all valuable information.

Next in line was the information science department, who displayed all its major and recent developments and all the initiative undertaken by it to produce well-equipped graduates.

The computer science department also impressed the freshers equally with the display of all the novel ideas in incubation within their department. Similarly, the computer science department exhibited the numerous activities that they carry out through their departmental forum Lakshya. A mini car that works without fuel and a mini bike model exhibited by the mechanical department was the center of attraction. 

The newer departments like automobile engineering, aeronautics engineering and construction technology also highlighted their future projects. And ‘Placement Pavilion’, one of the stalls, displayed its achievements and educated freshers and their parents about the recruitment process, industry requirements and also briefed them about how to face interviews.  

The festive and friendly atmosphere of the ‘Fresher’s Day’ evinced the desire of senior students to get along well with their juniors. “When I decided to join an engineering college, it was a nervous and tentative decision. I was a little afraid about the new campus life.

The induction programme opened my eyes to a whole new level of technical education. Though I am a newcomer, I could easily get accustomed to the changes. The ‘Fresher’s Day’ programme was an extremely innovative manner of showing us our responsibilities as the youngest members of the college,” said Aruna of the computer science department.

B M Reddy, President, Acharya Institutes; H D Maheshappa, Principal AIT and H Maheshappa, Vice-Chancellor, VTU, were present on the occasion. “Today, our friends presented many cultural events to entertain the new students. It also gave them an idea about the potential of their seniors. We also prepared a comic skit on the placement process, which was a satirical take on the fate of rejected candidates and the mistakes they commit during interviews,” said Sayanthan Roy, a biotechnology student, who is also one of the student-coordinators for placement activities.
