College life is a time of immense pleasure, joy, understanding and consistent efforts. All these qualities amalgamated in a unique sense of purpose determine the strength of the invisible relationship or thread that binds the students to their Alma matter even after graduation. The beautiful memories they create along the way generally witness participation from all the major pillars of society where a University/college plays a very important role. This role was utterly justified in the recently organized ITM Alumni-meet 2k18 at ITM University, the best University in Madhya Pradesh.
As ITM University offers courses in various disciplines, ranging from top Architecture courses, best Engineering courses, Management to Fashion Design and Life Sciences studies. The college has also proved its mettle and has been ranked distinctively in the list of top Architecture colleges of India, top Engineering Colleges of India and top Computer Science Colleges of India.
The ITM Alumni meet 2k18 was organized in Ram Manohar Lohiya Auditorium of ITM GOI campus in Sithouli. This beautiful campus has been active since the inception of the University, so it is safe to say that the alumnus also must have visited this part of the campus at some point in their college life. As they walked in, the former students were handed over T-shirts of ITM which is now among the top private Universities of Madhya Pradesh, as a token of appreciation for their auspicious presence. They took their respective seats and became spectators of the presentation by current university students, which can be best described as, “A trip down the memory lane”. This ‘trip’ featured special programs to spread a dose of nostalgia among the alumni. As the presentation progressed to its youth, the alumni could be seen discussing things like, ’xyz’ has changed, while ‘abc’ is still the same.
Though, the acts presented by current students would have fired up the memory neurons, for sure, the mimicry of teachers in one of the acts by the former students surely fueled up their anxiety and adrenaline levels. The students, now working in various reputed MNC’s of India, were deeply moved by the way this meet was organized.
Following this, the alumni were requested to introduce themselves and motivate the current batch of students. Their hearts were blazing with excitement and anticipation as they shared their life and times with the audience. They shared insights about the university unknown by the present batch, including day to day life hacks and tricks. Introducing themselves, they also talked about their mentors and teachers who had guided them during their tenure. “Teachers play a very important role in student’s life” this was proved by the senior students as the words of experience and wisdom encroached the audience at the auditorium. They even sang nostalgic songs remembering the days of free-living and vibrancy. Titles of Mr and Mrs Alumni were conferred to fuel the fire of belongingness inside their hearts. ITM University is the top private University in Madhya Pradesh which lives up to its reputation and takes care of its students even when they have passed out of the college.
A thrilling session, full of happy and beautiful memories was now in its adulthood, as everybody proceeded to the dining area for lunch. Though the food was just an excuse to talk and develop new relations, nevertheless, it was delicious and packed with variety. ITM maintains good quality food and hygiene as the top 10 engineering colleges in India are regularly checked by various government bodies to maintain proper standards in food and infrastructure.
No Get-together is complete without Group-photographs and selfie’s, the special guests posed with the students along with Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor to make the last moments memorable. They also felt grateful to have studied in this great temple of knowledge which ranks among the best B.tech colleges in MP.
Overall, the meet was able to evoke a notion of renewed camaraderie and fellowship in the hearts of all the alumni who visited ITM at Alumni-meet 2k18.
