The curtain comes down

The final-year engineering students of Sri Venkateshwara College of Engineering recently held their farewell ceremony, which was a nostalgic as well as happy occasion. The graduating batch had a formal function, where they clicked class photographs and interacted with their friends, teachers and juniors.

Though the rain played spoilsport, students could be seen enjoying themselves and spending time with their teachers as well as juniors. Aparna, a student, admits that she will miss her friends. “More than the college, I am going to miss being with my friends. I will also miss attending classes and meeting my teachers everyday. College is an integral part of one’s life and it’s really sad that it is over,” she says.

Many felt that their time in the college passed really quickly. Tina, a final-year student, not only spent time with her friends during the ceremony but also planned an outing with them afterwards. “The highlight of the entire function was when the teachers shared their experiences with us. Many students also went up on the stage and talked about their time in the college and the kind of activities they have been involved in these four years. We had a lunch session, which was followed by class photographs. All of us took pictures with our friends. It was fun and nostalgic at the same time,” she notes.

“We did not realise how quickly these four years would go by. Things are going to be very different now. I enjoyed my days in college and have made many memories with my friends,” she adds.

Students also feel that the friends that they have made in college will be friends for life.
 Ashutosh Kundan, a student, says that he will miss his friends a lot. “Four years ago, when I came to the college, I met a group of strangers and now, I am very close to them. My teachers have been equally important to me and I thank them for all the
support that they have given us,” he says.

The farewell was the perfect time for the final-year students to come together and share their thoughts, experiences and memories. More than anything, it was also a platform for them to show their gratitude to their teachers.

   “This was the last time that the entire class came together. We celebrated the four years that we spent with our classmates,” sums up Ankit, a student.
