Student life[edit]

Cultural festivals[edit]

The best part about colleges- the fests- ORIANA, organized by the third year batch, can't tell how much involved one can get and how much one can enjoy, with the endless work, sleepless nights (which come with the most precious time that would spend with your friends there), endless dance, good food, endless exposure, and endless fun. Those 4 days are the best of college lives.

During the star nights, the front area immediately adjacent to the stage is reserved for AIIMSonians and you really get the feel of being the front crowd in a big concerts right in front of the stars performing.
