Ms. Vinnie Mathur, dean, Student Affairs with Chief Guest, Bollywood Superstar, Suniel Shetty in Farewell 2014
That moment when you are ready to step into the professional world or as everyone lovingly call it as ready to get settled. It is that one evening which is a tribute from juniors to passing out seniors. The seniors who helped them with the notes in time of exams, stood by them in time of difficulties like an elder sibling and made them feel home in the college. It is that one evening where every passing out student remembers his college life, that evening where hethanks to his friends, hope that they all will be together no matter wherever they go, makes up the differences with college life enemies and try to finds the words to thank enough to their professors who turned their students into a professional similar to a coal being turned into a diamond.
Galgotias University every year organises a Farewell for all its passing out students which is so eventful that one can remember it throughout their lives. FAREWELL 2014 saw presence of Mr. Suneel Shetty, bollywood star as Chief Guest.
