A well-organised fest indeed


Chrizellenz 2014’, the national-level annual management fest of the Kengeri campus of Christ University, was held recently.

With a number of different management events, the fest was brimming with activity and kept the students involved. ‘Diamond’ (best manager), ‘Beryl’ (business quiz), ‘Zircon’ (marketing event), ‘Lolite’ (cultural event), ‘Citrine’ (B-Plan event), ‘Pearl’ (CSR event), ‘Agate’ (operations and IT event), ‘Lapiz Lazuli’ (general management event), ‘Emerald’ (finance event) and the human resources event, ‘White Opal’ were the different competitions conducted for the students. The cultural events consisted of solo dance, group dance and a talent hunt show. A spectacular DJ night by DJ Rajan marked the end of the two-day fest.

SIBM, Jain College, Alliance University, Kristu Jayanti College, XIME and St Aloysius College, Mangalore were some of the colleges that took part. The excited students were full of praises for the fest. Rahul, a first year MBA student of Acharya Institute of Management, who participated in the ‘marketing’ event, said that some of the rounds were very different. “In the sales round, we were expected to sell some bizarre products. We used a paper and pencil to market them to get loads of money. I went about making caricatures of people and it was a challenge.” He added that the event demanded inter-personal skills.

Another participant, Jeba Blessingson, an MBA student from Christ University, Koramangala, said that this fest had an edge over the other management fests in the City. “What was great about this fest was how they managed time. There was no lag between the events,” he said. Jeba, who took part in the operations and systems event, added that he realised how much more effort was required for such events.
Though it was challenging to conduct the fest, the organisers also had a fun time. Akriti Singh Chauhan, who was the junior student co-ordinator for the HR event, said that putting six rounds together for the event was a challenge. “‘Chrizellenz’ is an established fest among management students and everyone has certain expectations from it. It was easy to get students together for the fest but to provide top-notch hospitality was what we worked hard on,” said Ramya Kanna, a second year MBA student, who was one of the overall co-ordinators.

Kumarjit Mazumder, a second year MBA student, another overall student co-ordinator, added, “We conducted mock sessions of the activities prior to the fest to make sure that they were not impossible to do. And we are glad that our efforts paid off.”
