The students of PES Degree College recently conducted a cultural week — a seven-day long extravaganza which gave them a chance to showcase their creative side.

As part of this, the college celebrated ‘Corporate Day’, ‘Twins Day’, ‘Retro Day’ and many other such occasions, for which they also dressed the part.

Celebrations are never complete without performances and hence, the students also put up some colourful shows.

Vijayashree, one of the student organisers of the programme, says that putting together the cultural week was a great experience.

“We all dressed according to the day we were celebrating — it was an amazing experience. For instance, on ‘Corporate Day’, we dressed in formals. All the students stuck to the regimen,” she adds.

Over the course of the week, the students came to college wearing fun and colourful outfits.

‘Twins Day’ was interesting, as the students paired up and sported the same clothes and hairstyles.

Shahana, another student, had a great time. “We had planned our outfits for the entire week. We had many cultural events as well — there was a collage-making competition, mehendi event, as well as a dance and group song competition. The response of the students was great! All of us participated in the celebrations with great gusto and enthusiasm,” she smiles.

Students came up with innovative and different concepts so that they could make the celebrations even more interesting and enjoyable.

“It was a good break from the regular routine. We were all looking forward to this. The best part of the week was that the entire college came together and participated in it. Everyone was looking forward to the celebrations — right from the teachers to the students,” adds Shweta, a student. ‘Black and White Day’ and ‘Multi Colour Day’ were also a part of the celebrations.

The students even presented dance performances to popular numbers, adding more colour to the celebrations. The cultural week was a huge success among the students, who cherished the chance to let their hair down.
