Inviting the students to Fiesta 2022, chancellor prof S Waseem Akhtar extorted students to participate in events locally as well as in other universities and colleges.
“University’s annual festival Fiesta 2022 is a way of reflecting and celebrating the spirit of youth in providing a platform to the students to nurture and harness their innate talents,” he said. The inaugural function was enriched by a scintillating performance by Shashwat of Kailash Kher’s Sufi song “Bismillah”, a tribute to melody queen Lata Mangeshkar with a medley of her songs and a stunning show of strength by the international student of the Integral University.
