The orientation ceremony for the freshers of Lady Shri Ram College for Women was held on Wednesday, 24th July.

As always, the event included performances from various societies along with the Principal’s address. The auditorium packed with women, was addressed by Principal, Meenakshi Gopinath. She talked about the ‘magic of LSR’, the philosophy behind FYUP and overall the experience that studying in the institution gives you.

The occasion was also graced with the presence of Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh who Dr. Gopinath introduced as the ‘most handsome Vice-Chancellor ever’. Continuing the humour, VC talked about how this welcome at LSR has been 35 years late, with him reliving his days at Stephen’s when he and his friends would be eager to enter the gates of the college.


The VC congratulated the students on making it to the best college in the country. He also made the announcement that the University would give the college a grant worth Rs. 5 lakhs which the VC suggested could be used for building a proper air-conditioning system for the college auditorium. The Vice Chancellor was accompanied by his entire team including Prof. Sudhish Pachauri, Pro-Vice Chancellor and Prof. Umesh Rai, Director, South Campus. Other members included the Dean of colleges and the Proctor of the University.

Along with the grant, the VC also announced the fomulation of an Incubation center in the college that would fund entrepreneurial ideas and startups initiated by students. The Incubation center would be set up by the University within the next two months.

Lastly, praising the popular food from the cafe, the VC asked whether an outlet could be opened in North Campus as well!

As the trend has been, the programme ended with Vandana Kohli’s movie, that talks about the ‘Magic of LSR’ with the freshers then moving on to refreshments and their department orientations.
