Continuing with the proud tradition of the Mechanical Engineering Department, senior students and newcomers of the department mingled with each other at the freshers’ welcome party organised by MES on 20th and 21st September. Aptly called Fresher’s Night, the purpose of the event was that every ‘fresher’ of ME Department feels like an integral part of the family and prepares to take on challenge of the journey ahead.

For the first time ever, ME department Freshers’ Night was organized outside the campus, thanks to the untiring efforts of MES. Jovial smiles and high spirits marked the welcome party for the students. The party was organised on two consecutive days at the ELF Café, Hauz Khas Village where manifested youth and enthusiasm at its full flow. With pulsating ambience, flashing lights and foot tapping music, the party began with a blast. As the mercury began to rise, the dance floor was left open for some unbridled energy. Joy and happiness could be seen in students of each and every course at the college. They were having the time of their lives. Inquisitive about campus life and conscious of the latest fashion trends, the freshers dressed their best. The freshers were served with scrumptious food and tropical soft drinks that tickled their taste buds.
