Fresher’s Day in any college is one of the most awaited events for students. A little lilting music and the chink of ice, new faces, smiles all along, resounding laughter- yes it is party time! The very purpose of Fresher’s Day party is to welcome newcomers in a friendly atmosphere, to encourage their creative impulses, boost their confidence and break the ice.

Boys mostly wore red and black combination with their face painted as demons and girls were seen in blue and white with fairy bands. The event unfurled with the senior students gathering at the lawn facing the hostel in order to give a warm welcome to all the freshmen and raising a toast.
