Alumni Congress: The Rejuvenating Reunion
Life gives us brief moments...but sometimes, in those brief moments, we get memories that last a lifetime...
The most unforgettable and evergreen period of almost everyone will be the years they spent in their college. In this period, one would have been blessed with a lot of precious memories that can provoke laughter even during the difficult phases of one’s life. Also, there are memories which remain in one’s mind as priceless lessons, guiding him throughout the adventure of life. As quoted by Dan Bartolovic, a trip to nostalgia now and then is good for the spirit. The Alumni Congress organized every year in PSG College of Technology comes as a boon to those who have passed out from the college. It not only enlightens them about the activities of various alumni, but also gives them an opportunity to rejuvenate themselves by reliving their college days.
As a part of the celebrations of the GRD centenary year, PSG Tech Alumni Association organized the second edition of Alumni Congress on December 28, 2013. The event was meant for the alumni of PSG College of Technology and Polytechnic College. Over 900 alumni along with their family participated in the event. The gathering was addressed by, Mr. C. Raviselvan, President, PSG Tech Alumni Association, Dr. R. Rudramoorthy, Patron and Shri. L. Gopalakrishnan, Managing Trustee, PSG & Sons’ Charities. Dr. R. M. Vasagam, Ex-Director, Directorate of Advanced Planning and Technology, ISRO, Bangalore was the chief guest of the event. Dr. D. Gandhikumar, President, Federation of Indian Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises was felicitated during the event. In PSG CT & PTC, the young alumni of 35 years and below were recognized for their outstanding contribution to society and industry. The speech by Dr. Mylswamy Annadurai, Project Director, Chandrayaan I & II, was received with much applause.
As a part of the events there was an interactive session organized which gave a wonderful opportunity for the alumni to interact with the faculty and students. The students currently pursuing their course in the college benefitted much through the Industry-Institute interactions meet. The alumni cum industry experts interacted with faculty and students on various topics spread across 17 departments. A Tek Music show, where the former members of the club delivered a euphonious performance proved to be a fitting finale to the indelible event.
With the grandeur of success of the Alumni Congress 2013, the expectations run high for the next edition of the Alumni congress happening on 3rd January, 2015. While the basic outline of the events will be the same as that of the previous edition, the third Alumni Congress is expected to provide an amazing time for the family of the Alumni through fun games and a mesmerizing Tek Music show. The event will also present an opportunity for the Alumni to dine together, with their long lost friends and indulge in reminiscence.
When we recall the past, we usually find that it is the simplest things and not the great occasions that bring a smile on our face. To recollect those moments and create much more, the Alumni of PSG CT and PSG PTC are invited to join the meet. The former Students of the college have come a long way and they sure have a long way to go. It will be a privilege for the college to have all its legends under one roof.
