If their freshers' day is anything to go by, the first year students of Villa Marie College for Women are sure to have a wonderful college life ahead. It was a day filled with fun, laughter, song and dance. Saturday saw the girls dressed to the nines wandering around Agrasen Bhavan the venue for the celebration. First years were floating around in brightly coloured and embellished saris and the seniors had their high heels and skinny jeans in place.
The day started with the seniors welcoming the juniors. The college club ‘Evoke' made up of the journalism students pledged to help local NGOs and managed to raise funds for the cause. The nature club, ‘Villa Natura' performed a skit and also promoted green practices such as recycling. Dance was on the cards next with the second and third year students performing energetically on stage to the latest Bollywood numbers. The audience went wild watching the performances, clapping and dancing along to the tunes.
After the dances the most important event of the day took place; the Ms. Freshers' competition. Around 40 first year students took part. They answered questions with confidence, walked the ramp with poise and were an extremely talented bunch. The contestants were asked to relate themselves to a Bollywood actress. The Judges Zara Shah and Principal Y. Philomena had a tough time picking a winner. But they eventually picked Jasleen Kaur as winner and Samia and Karishma were the runners up.
The day ended with a massive party with DJ Sid taking centre stage and the girls dancing the evening away. All in all it was a day for the first years to remember as they entered college life.
