It was a flurry of activities at KIAMS through the month of August and right up to Teacher’s Day celebrations that had the campus buzzing. The institute had just welcomed its new batch of students and they were in for a treat as the series of activities began on high note. For starters, there was the Fresher’s party themed “Creating a friendly relationship between seniors and juniors in a disciplined manner” that got things going on a high note.
The evening brought together the new batch of students, their seniors and faculty members who interacted as equals and shared with each other. Different activities like flying eggs, tap the balloon, musical chair, virtual volley ball broke the ice and led to fun filled moments. Everyone including the faculty members seemed to have had a nice time as Prof. D. B. Nimbalkar said, “It was great to see the infectious energy of the students, which was rubbing off on everyone.”
That same energy was on display even more during the song and dance performances that marked the evening. The students definitely had their dancing shoes on as the DJ played some of the favorite tracks. Pappu dance was clearly one of the highlights and had everyone talking about it for long. “It was an awesome party and so much fun to be a part of Pappu dance. We let our hair down and left the competition behind,” said Tarun, one of the students.
Things took on a thoughtful note on the 69th Independence Day as the students were filled with patriotic fervor. KIAMS does its best to not only create top professionals but socially responsible individuals as well. The students were reminded of their duty towards the society and country as Dr. Janaki Nair, Director, KIAMS unfurled the National Flag. Singing of the National Anthem and a parade completed the proceedings for the day.
The festivities spilled into the month of September with the Teacher’s Day celebrations where students got an opportunity to express their gratitude to their faculty members. They had organized different games that brought the fun side out of the faculty team. Performances of Prof. Gopal Iyengar and Nikhil Ingle, student Batch 18 were highlights of the event that ended with cutting of the cake and presenting of a handmade card to the faculty team.
