Econvista: National Student Symposium @ LSR
While Lady Shri Ram College is known for its vibrant array of extra-curricular activities, the activities taken by the Unions of the various departments diligently are worthy of applause. One of the best organised department fests, that is, that of the LSR Economics Department- Econvista, took place recently. Sagarika Pandey, a part of the LSR MUN 2013 Logistics team, as well a determined first year Economics student, tells us how the eventful fest unfolded.
The economics department of Lady Shri Ram College hosted the biggest event of their department this weekend. With the months of preparation culminating in a two day event that ended on 2nd March, the event was a huge success. The event was organised on a national level which saw participation from St. Xavier's Kolkata, Christ University Bangalore among other outstation and Delhi colleges. The two day student symposium saw a range of formal and informal events that tested students on every possible level. One of the interesting things to observe was that students from other streams participated in the fest too, students from medical background to law and other humanities subjects, all found some event or the other to cater to their interest.
The wide range of events from quiz, debate to paper presentation among others saw encouraging participation which ensured that each event was successful. Lavanya, a second year economics student tells us, "Economics as a subject can be very dry and competitive at the same time. Therefore, the fest was a brilliant opportunity to go out of the box and explore the various aspects of our course."
The two day event ended with a splendid closing ceremony where the various awards and participation certificates were given. The best outstation was St. Xavier's Kolkata followed by Jai Hind College, Mumbai. The ceremony ended with a breathtaking performance of the choreography department of the Dance Society. The ceremony also saw a unique combination of Violin and Kathak, performed by the talented members of the Economics Department. Truly. Econvista was an event to behold.
