AIMC students resume offline classes with a classy exhibition of students’ talent

The institute organised a show to welcome students back on the campus in which they upped the fun quotient



After a break of more than a month due to the rising Omicron cases and the subsequent lockdown, the Apeejay Institute of Mass Communication (AIMC) campus reopened with great pomp. Welcoming the students, the institute organised a talent hunt show for them. The show was held in the college’s auditorium, where the students and the teachers came together to celebrate talent in all its forms.

Professor Ashok Ogra, Advisor, AIMC, Professor Sajal Mukherjee, Director of AIMC, Dr. Pijush Dutta, Professor and Programme Director of AIMC, and Prof. Naveen Gautam, Assistant Professor at AIMC, graced the occasion. 

The event took off with a series of performances wherein the students specialising in Television and Radio Journalism showcased their dancing, singing, and poetry talent. Students specialising in Advertising and Marketing Communications along with their peers from Corporate Communications and Event Management programme displayed their brand activation projects. 

The auditorium was thriving with fun-filled activities. Students threw anonymous challenges to the audience such as walking the ramp, dancing on the fold, or enacting a script.

Thrilled to be back to the college, Divya Agrawal, pursuing Advertising & Marketing Communication from AIMC, said, “I was so excited to meet everyone after a month. It felt so nice to finally come back to college. The talent hunt show has rightly set the mood for many more exciting events to be conducted in the coming months. I am so looking forward to having a great time at AIMC.” 

Another AIMC student, Shradha Das Mahapatra, who is specialising in Corporate Communication & Event Management, said, “All my friends gave spectacular performances. The brand activation session where participants showcased hypothetical brands was something I really liked. I learned so many new things today from my batchmates like how to present a brand and convey its key messaging. A great learning experience for all of us.”

Kumar Sahil, who is specialising in Television and Radio Journalism, said, “I am glad to finally meet my friends and teachers after so long.  I was waiting for the campus to reopen for physical classes. The show gave us the platform to unlock our hidden talents.”

Suman Gupta from the Television & Radio Journalism/Production programme said, “New year, new enthusiasm!  It was such an exciting event. I am glad to be a part of the AIMC family.”

Speaking to the students at the event, Professor Ashok Ogra said, “It was overwhelming to see the students excelling in the talent show. I believe if you all have the determination in your hearts and spark in your eyes, nobody can stop you from getting the top positions across all media platforms.”

The students made sure that the fun of the event was not compromised, keeping in mind the Covid protocols. 

“It’s good to see everyone back. I believe that everyone is talented or skillful and hence students must work on further nurturing the talent that they possess. Your talents will play a huge role in enhancing your career prospects.”
