What is the most difficult thing for a Junior? Ask a senior out for an evening.
It has been more than a month since the new batch joined SIMS and seniors got back to the campus and until now we never got a chance to interact with the senior batch. As this is placement time for seniors and it is raining assignments on us, this is the perfect time where we have to get to know each other. In order to break the barriers and comfortably interact with each other, the Events cell organized Ice Breaker 2014 from 16th July 2014 to 18th July 2014.
Junior student managers were told to bring along a senior with them as their partner. Well, some were lucky whereas others had a hard time. The event started with musical chair where the juniors were seated facing the seniors in a circle. What happened if you don’t manage a seat when music stops? Well you get a Penalty- the most overused word of the season. It was then, when we got to know about the hidden talents in our batch. The dancers (of all kinds), rappers, mimicry artist, polls and singers came into the limelight through this game. This was followed by games like Tug of War and arm-wrestling where in seniors and juniors battled it out to show their strength. No party is complete without dance. The event ended with a bang as everyone danced their heart content. Rains and buckets of water made the evening better. It was “Rain Dance” at SIMS after all.
An amazing show was organized up by the JETS. Although it was the first event organized by them, they kept their guests busy and entertained all along.
