Farewell ceremonies are always emotional. Recently, the students of mass communication of Oxford College of Arts received a touching farewell from their juniors at an event called Sayonara 2013.

   The graduating batch had a great time interacting with their juniors and
participating in the events that were planned for them.

The farewell programme had activities ranging from dance and music to games. “The programme was held at the psychology lab in the college and we had planned different activities for our seniors like game shows, songs and dances. The teachers also spoke about the time they spent with the seniors. We also realised that as a class, we were pretty close. It gave us an opportunity to show our love for the seniors. We came to know how supportive and affectionate our teachers are,” says Rahul S R, a first-year student.

After the formal inauguration by the principal, the stars of the day were welcomed to the hall with a badge highlighting their talents.

   “We made a badge that spoke about the qualities that they had. We also made a special presentation on which we wrote what we felt about them. Later, we welcomed them with chandan and flowers,” adds Rahul. The programme saw the
juniors showcasing their talent and shaking their leg to some of the popular numbers. The seniors also joined them later.

Innovative games, like blowing balloons, ramp walk, ‘Pick and Act’, and the competition for selecting ‘Student of the Year’ were extremely entertaining.

   The ‘Student of the Year’ title was awarded to Ridha Sayed by the principal.
“I have spent the best days of my life here. The farewell is really memorable. I thank everyone present here,” said Ridha. Many others could be seen catching up with their friends and sharing  memories of their first day in college and the projects and trips that they had made together. The four-hour programme saw many sharing their experiences and some were moved to tears. The final-year students were overwhelmed by the affection of their friends and blessings of their teachers.
