Curtains down on ‘Ovations 2007’
|Inter-departmental fest at Loyola College|
The function ended with actor Vijay obliging the students’ demands to sing a few lines
CHENNAI: The auditorium was jam-packed. Excited whispers, craned necks and a multitude of cameras being set up filled the few moments it took actor Vijay to walk in. The cheers when the students saw him took at least five minutes to stop.
The inter-departmental fest at Loyola College, ‘Ovations 2007,’ drew to a close on Saturday after two days of cultural and literary events both on and off stage.
At the valedictory, Vijay, chief guest of the evening, said coming to Loyola brought back fond memories of his days as a student in the college. “Many students who are from Loyola have gone on to occupy high positions and become successful,” he said, urging the students to study hard but have fun too.
The college fares well both in academics and extra-curricular activities, its deputy principal John Pragasam said.
The function ended with Vijay obliging the students’ demands to sing a few lines.
Around 20 departments of the college participated in the events, which included collage, light music, theme dance and creative writing. The overall championship was awarded to the students of the Visual Communications department, who cheered with extra vigour and delight as this happens to be the department Vijay studied.
The runners-up of the competition were the students of the Commerce Shift II department. On Friday, the first day of the fest, actor Vikram was present.
