Nostalgic moments

It is a challenge we are well prepared for,” say students of the CMR Institute of Management Studies who celebrated their Graduation Day with a great deal of pomp and ceremony.

The atmosphere at the bright airy campus was charged with a mix of excitement and nostalgia as students and faculty participated enthusiastically in the well planned graduation programme.

“We are proud of the fact that we have a team of selfless and dedicated educationists committed to creating benchmarks in the field of higher education,” said Prof. Mukerji, the Dean of  Management and Commerce, adding, “over 700 students from various undergraduate and postgraduate programmes have graduated today and we are confident that they will step out armed with both an academic degree and a well-rounded personality.”

The day began with a solemn academic procession led by the Chief Guest, Guests of Honour, Members of the Board of Management, the heads of the various departments of CMRIMS and the Principal.

This was followed by an invocation and a prayer by the President of the Student Council. Prof Suja Bennet, the Principal, then warmly welcomed the gathering after which the graduating students took turns to share their experiences.
 Prof Susheela Rajan, who represented the faculty, also addressed the students giving them some valuable advice.

A parent from Iran sang a song in Farsi, especially for the graduating students, followed  by a felicitation of the University rank holders. The chief guest, Dr Guruprasad delivered the commencement address, speaking nostalgically about his student days.

This was followed by a dignified graduation ceremony which included the lighting of  ‘the lamp of knowledge’ and the taking of the graduation oath.

The graduates were then given their course completion certificates with the President, Dr Sabitha Ramamurthy congratulating them and wishing them well.

The formal part of the event was rounded off with singing of the National Anthem followed by an afternoon of interaction and fellowship.
