Office of the Director, Student Welfare, and Second Year students of the School of Science and School of Engineering, observed Grand Welcome on 11 Dec 2012 at Central Campus in Dhulikhel. Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Bibek Baral and Mr. Hem Raj Kafle, Associate Directors of Student Welfare, emphasized on the importance of such activities, however management has always been a challenge. Prof. Dr. Subodh Sharma, Director of Student Welfare welcoming the first years, also appreciated second year students for their enthusiasm, without which this event would have not been possible. He further added that this tradition was introduced at Kathmandu University at the time when only I.Sc. programme was running. With so many different academic programmes being added and the number of students intake increasing each year at KU, it is indeed becoming very difficult to organize big events. But with highly discipline students, like this years’ batch and of course the second years, and their enthusiasm anything can be possible.


Present on the occasion were, besides first and second year students, Controller of Examinations, Chief Administrative Officer, other distinguished faculty members and staff. Main highlights of the event were besides performance from second and first years, the KU band, and the Night Band. The organizers expressed their heartfelt thanks to all those who were present on the occasion and those who were supporting it from a distance.
