This September saw IIT Bombay acquire a new lease of life. It welcomed new PG students to the IIT Bombay family, with a flurry of 'online' orientations for the new entrants to enliven the atmosphere. We heartily welcome all the new students and wish them all a prosperous and successful term ahead.
The month of March was one of surprises. Having completed half of the semester, all students were ready to dive deep into academics, indulge in grabbing the PORs they were eyeing and a lot of activity was expected. The sudden outbreak of the coronavirus in the country saw a turn of events. The institute had to be shut down mid of March and students were asked to go home to prevent the virus from spreading.
The month of February saw the campus abuzz with events and activities, including the semester mid-term examinations. The student gymkhana elections had the campus riveted with excitement and suspense. Please join me in congratulating all the contestants and wishing the winners a successful term ahead. Now let us glance at some of the highlights of this month’s edition.
The beginning of the new spring semester in January saw students returning back to the campus with joy and excitement. On January 26, 2020, IIT Bombay proudly celebrated the nation’s 71st Republic Day. The event included a ceremonial parade followed by a series of entertainment programs at the Institute Gymkhana Grounds.
