The programme began with an opening speech by Shubham Hisaria, the student council president. It was followed by welcome speeches by Ajay Pathak, senior director of IBS, and professor Durga Rani Sinha, corporate director, and Samprit Chakraborty, dean. They extended sincere wishes and words of encouragement to the fresh batch of students.
An evening full of activities awaited the students. After two dance performances by the seniors, the juniors took part in dance and music competitions. It was followed by the most-awaited segment of the event — the selection of Mr and Miss IBS. The freshers captivated the audience with a show, making it a tough decision for the judges. The Rising Star award went to The Fielders of Fortune, best singer went to Shivam Das and the best dancer was bagged by Apala Bannerjee.
For the Mr and Ms IBS contest, the competition was divided into two parts. The first was a fashion show where the students showcased their styles and walked the stage with confidence. The second part had a question-and-answer session which allowed the students to demonstrate their intellect and communication skills. Shivang Tiwari bagged the Mr IBS title and Punam Kumari bagged the Ms IBS title. Dinner and DJ night allowed students to let their hair down.
