  • Aaruni is the Freshers’ event for the students of First Year.
  • The whole event is planned solely for the first year students, keeping in mind their expectations.

The event began with Happy Hours, a day full of sports and enjoyment, held on 29th October, 2017. The day comprised of inter-class sports competitions for sports like Basketball, Football, Throw ball, Volleyball, Tug of War, Badminton, etc. The sports events were followed by short performances by Dance, Drama and Music Club.

The theme for Aaruni this year was SMILE STONE, which was inspired by the life lesson of “An Extra Mile for a Smile”. The Aaruni night was the journey of a few miles for a smile, where all fresher’s dressed up their best to walk an extra mile for the smile.

Aaruni week began with various challenges, activities and contests.



IMPERA is the personality contest for the title of Mr. or Miss Fresher called Mr. and Miss Impera. The contest continued throughout the week and had various rounds in which people were eliminated and finally 6 students qualified for the stage rounds on the final day.
The first round was the personality form filling round. The second round consisted of the Aptitude Test for the selected contestants. The third round tested their general awareness, by conducting Group Discussions. The fourth round was the extempore round which judged the contestants’ verbal abilities and spontaneity. After all these grilling rounds, the selected few students went through a personal interview.  Out of 800-odd students, 6 (3 girls and 3 boys) went on stage to face the final rounds in front of their batch mates.

A new event “OPEN MIC” was introduced this year for the students so that they can showcase their unique talents in front of the college. Cultural Auditions were conducted for the students in which a few students were selected to walk the ramp, dance and sing on the final day. The final day, that is the Aaruni day witnessed the final round of Impera, followed by Cultural Evening.
