This year’s alumni meet saw a mix of 25+ alumni and 7 old faculty members of SVIMS attending the virtual celebration. The 2 games that we played and the riveting conversations we had with Alumni took us all through a joyous ride down the memory track. This meet like every year revealed to us how our once naive students have now grown into matured well-rounded personalities. Each one had a valuable suggestion to offer to the current batch of students. This interaction led to good networking even over the virtual platform.
Since we had already planned and called for nominations for 2 awards namely, 1. Miss Entrepreneur and 2. Uneasy and Crowned Head (the leader), our Director announced Ms Nishita and Miss Siddhika as co-winners for the title of ‘Uneasy and Crowned Head.’ While, the 2 short listed ‘Miss Entrepreneur’ award declared winners were Ms Manisha Mali and Ms Vanshika Valbhani.
This meet turned out to be splash of colours, an afternoon of joyful chitter-chatter, a get-together of enthusiastic folks and a lively celebration.
