New faces, foot-tapping music, unbridled smiles, high spirits, and a pulsating ambience– it was party time recently! With the teacher and student communities at University Institute of Legal Studies, Panjab University whole-heartedly welcoming the B.A. LL.B. and B.Com. LL.B. batches of 2017-2022, and the one year LL.M. batch of 2017-18 and the two years LL.M. batch of 2017-19, the freshers imbibed in themselves the faith that college is just another home away from home.
The party, organised on the 28th of September, 2017, at the University Auditorium, witnessed an amalgamation of students from various regions throughout the country. The event commenced with a formal welcome of the guests, teachers, and freshers. Interspersed with various cultural performances by the seniors, the main highlight of the event was the ramp walk held for the newcomers.
The freshers, wearing colourful ethnic outfits, had joy, happiness and confidence writ large on their faces. The judges of the competition asked some thought-invoking questions from the short listed candidates, giving them a platform to showcase their abilities and skills. After some stiff competition, Pawanpreet and Akshit Pathania of the five year law batches were declared as Ms. And Mr. Fresher respectively, with Kartikey Vashishth and Jasmeet Kaur Brar of the LL.M. batches taking the titles for Mr. Personality and Ms. Elegant respectively.
The programme concluded with Dr. (Prof.) Rattan Singh, Director, UILS, sharing words of wisdom with the audience and congratulating the volunteers on the organisation of a successful event. All in all it turned out to be an excellent opportunity for the freshers to interact with their seniors and colleagues and make a fresh start to the year.
