Splash of colours on campus


The students of PES Degree College recently had a lot of fun, as they held ‘Zenith’, a two-day cultural and commerce fest. Though the response from other colleges was low, it did not dampen the students’ enthusiasm for the event.

While the commerce fest included various business-related events like a business quiz, ‘Ice Breaker’, a stress-management test — in which the students had to manage a difficult situation — a debate based on the financial situation of the country, collage-making and ‘Brand Makeover’, the cultural events were a stage to bring forth the talents of the students.

As many as 11 colleges participated in the commerce fest, which was held on the college campus. The students were disappointed about the lukewarm response from other colleges, but say that they put in their maximum effort.

“Very few colleges participated in the fest, as many of them were having their examinations. The commerce fest saw a better response than the cultural one. We had fun organising the whole thing and a lot of effort was put in for the fest,” says Hemant, a final-year commerce student.

The cultural fest, which was held on the second day, had a whole set of events like dancing, music, face-painting, ‘Ad-Mania’, ‘60 Seconds To Fame’, etc. 

The students could be seen having fun, shaking a leg along with the dance numbers being performed on the stage and chatting with their classmates.  “We enjoyed the fest a lot. In the beginning, it was a little slow but as the dance competition started, we started grooving to the songs. Organising the whole thing was a huge challenge for us.

We had a hard time convincing sponsors and briefing them about the benefits of supporting us,” says Karthick, a final-year commerce student.

He adds, “The teachers were extremely helpful and they supported us in more than one way, to make the fest a success.” Colleges like Sri Krishna College, Vijaya College, R T College, Austin College, VET College and BMS College for Women participated in the fest.

Gayatri, a final-year student, says that it was the combined effort of the seniors and juniors that saved the day.
