Homecoming 2007 was held on the 6th & 7th of October and the 2 day event began with the official function which was presided over by the Director, Dr. Nagabrahmam. The Alumni Affairs Committee Chairman, Prof T N Badri welcomed the gathering and Rikhia Das, Alumni Affairs Committee member, spoke about the current activities and plans for the committee for the coming year.
The domain specific meets that focused on the different trends in the industry as well as what different companies expect from management graduates was well appreciated by the alumni, faculty and students. It provided a unique platform for the faculty to gauge the current industry scenario as well as enabled the students to gain a better understanding of the corporate world. The Homecoming photograph was held in the Madhav Kripa School and was followed by tea and snacks in the college which gave the alumni a chance to interact with the faculty & students.
The volleyball match between the alumni and the faculty with the non teaching staff was very competitive and in the end the alumni emerged victorious. The day’s events were capped off with the cultural evening held at WestInd Country Club, Manipal. The evening was made memorable with a musical performance as well as dance performances by students of PGP I as well as the LogComm.
Several stalls were set up on Sunday that lent a festive atmosphere to the campus. The alumni & faculty tried their hand at various games including a football match that involved the current batches. An impromptu jam session made the morning truly memorable. The trip to the new TAPMI campus that was arranged for the alumni in the afternoon allowed them to witness the construction activities that are proceeding at a rapid pace. TAPMI will be moving to the new campus in the next academic year coinciding with its silver jubilee. Mr. N G Nayak, the Administrative Officer was on hand to explain to the alumni and Prof T N Badri the developments in the construction activities as well as the layout and plans for the new campus.
