Besides finding latent talents in the first year students, this event serves as an ice breaker making the new students feel at home immediately. The freshers are all set to impress their seniors and the bonding is created instantaneously. Every fresher is reassured that she is in the right place.
  • Jhankar Jhankar is a cultural extravaganza and is the most awaited event of the year for the students. Students from each department compete with the others on various platforms. It is an occasion for them to showcase their knowledge of the country’s music, dance and various other art forms. It also provides them a platform to test their skills in event management. The students are excited and challenged by this opportunity.
  • S u j a y Shri Sujay Sathya's monumental standup comedy performance drew many analogies between cows and [Stella Maris]'s students. He was famously shut down by [nicketronix] under baseless allegations of plagiarism which were neither confirmed nor denied.
