NEWSLETTER. Dear Seniors,
With this erratic monsoon passing by, and although dengue is reaching epic proportions in Kolkata, it is yet to hamper the ecstatic mood of JU E-Faculty , which is ,as always, filled with an air of upbeat enthusiasm, fun & laughter, little moments of despair and plenty of ‘lyad khawa’.
Freshers began classes on 3rd of august. We warmly welcomed the freshers with a Central Orientation Program organized by FETSU which was held at Gandhi Bhavan on 6th August, a new initiative aimed at interacting with the freshers on a much bigger platform and to encourage them to look beyond their own department and reach out to others.
The departmental freshers season began in mid August ; bright new faces in dhuti-punjabis or sarees taking up the stage with a mix of fear and exuberance, relishing the experience altogether.
It was an exciting day for the freshers at the JU SL campus with student performances, a rocking performance by “Paper Fly” and summed up by a DJ night…at CIPPUS 2012
Dr. Souvik Bhattacharya, an ex-student of JU Mechanical Engineering Department, a former Dean of IIT-KGP, with very innovative ‘dabis’ like students should not smoke in campus, number of cultural activities should be reduced, a hostelite should go to a bar instead of drinking inside hostel and many more to come…
It has been quite a dull fresher's football in terms of quality of the teams and level of performances, still the excitement was full on, helpless goalies digesting all sorts of ‘words of praise’ . However ,at the end, Electrical and Salt Lake-II turned up with impressive performances, as they got the better of Pharmacy and Civil respectively in the semis, and we are looking forward to a classic final between the two teams.
2nd years biting nails, hopping around Sector-V, high pitched conveners' meeting, boring seminars on CAT , and some more “thap dewa”…and an eager wait for our very own “MUKTOMANCHA”.
18th Sept : Triguna Sen Auditorium, Main Campus
20th Sept : SL Campus

WESTERNNIGHT: The first of its kind at Sanskriti, a “Metal Fest” featuring “YONSMPLE” and “What Escapes Me”. Some extremely tight music and plenty of head banging
EASTERN NIGHT: FIDDLER’S GREENOn a silent Holi evening, the OAT stage felt like a drawing room to Arko Mukherjee and band as they filled the air with soothing music and took our musical experience to a different level.
REUNION NIGHT : RAGHU DIXIT PROJECT It was all heart and soul for the man wearing dhoti and ‘ghungroo’, as he belted out classic numbers one after the another
OAT NIGHT: A.R Rahman troupe featuring Sanjeev Thomas, Naresh Iyer,Keith Peters, Baijuand Asad Khan. A high voltage performance by them and a pumped up OAT with its 13000 plus crowd.
The freshers season has ended and the hectic schedule of class tests and mid sems has begun. With only a few days to go for U TURN 2012, it’s an exciting and testing time for the 2nd years. With OAT being renovated, which will take around an year to complete and Authority already given permission for having MUKTOMANCHA at U-TURN, so SANSKRITI 2013 will also be seeing MUKTOMANCHA after a gap of 6 years and we at JU E-Faculty are all looking forward to it.
