Moments to cherish

It was a big day for the first PUC students as they were exploring college life for the first time. It was a rejoicing moment for the second PUC students too as they were meeting friends after a long vacation of two months.  The orientation programme was held on the first day and classes began formally. Teachers and seniors involved the freshers in some ice-breaking activities like antakshari, one minute, pick and act, funny questions etc and made the first day all the more enjoyable and memorable for the students.

Shrivalli, a first PUC science student, was excited on winning a gift in a fun activity conducted by the seniors. “For wearing high-heeled sandals in a fun game, I got chocolates. I am happy that I got recognised on the first day itself. I am thankful to my teachers and seniors for making my first day memorable,” said a thrilled Shrivalli.

More than the students, the parents seemed quite anxious as they waited for their kids near the classroom and tried to communicate with them. But more than being nervous, the students were excited to experience their first in college. Srishti, another first year student, seemed very happy on joining a new college. “I studied at Jindal Public School which was very strict. Here, the environment is totally different. Being in an all girls’ college, we have the added advantage of enjoying our freedom to the fullest. Within a few hours, I made more than ten friends,” she said excitedly.

The student union members visited each classroom and explained about the facilities available in the college to the freshers. The juniors were made aware of NSS, NCC, cultural clubs, gym, canteen, libr­ary and other things. Even class representatives were selected in some classes. In an election conducted in the scien­ce stream (Physics, Che­mistry, Mathematics and Computer Science combination), Aishwarya emerged as the class representative. “I never thought of beco­m­ing a class representative and on the first day itself, I have been given many responsibilities. I will try my hardest to make my class the best,” said a thrilled Aishwa­rya. Shashikala, another student, said she liked the ambience of the college. “The serene campus filled with greenery inspires us to concentrate on studies. We are all from different schools but became friends quite soon. I thank my seniors who made us feel at ease,” she remarked.

Even outside the campus, many exciting things were happening. Vendors had put up stalls and were selling accessories, funky jewellery, ch­aats, stationery etc. And some girls were spotted going on a shopping spree after class.
