Campus Festivals and the Fresher welcome parties organized by colleges have come of age. From being held in the confines of the college they have grown into big events with involvement of service providers such as Fashion show choreographers, Dance Instructors, Caterers, Event Management agencies, DJs, etc. Management and students vie with other colleges for one-upmanship in organizing the parties welcoming the newbies with style and splendor. Fashions Shows, Talents Shows, Games, Contests, Mr. & Ms. Fresher Competitions, etc. give the new students their share of fun and glamour. The parties are funded by the students themselves with college managements too chipping in. Sometimes the celebrations continue ever after the Freshers’ Party in the colleges in the form of various talent shows, contests, etc.
