“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”
All great things have memorable beginnings and so can be said about the recently held inauguration ceremony of the Life Science Association of Christ University. While inaugurations are usually times of excitement and cheer, this one was in fact special in its own way, mainly because it commemorated the commencement of a newly found association that aimed at diversifying the learning experiences and widening the horizons of the students from across the disciplines of Botany, Zoology and Biotechnology.
The ceremony began with the formal announcement of the three elected representatives namely, President Michelle Correa of V BCB, Vice President Aljo Anand of V CBZ and Secretary Shalomi Rachel of V BCZ and the core Committee members by the Life Science Association Coordinator, Dr Suma S. The members of the association included all the faculty and students of the department of Biotechnology, Botany and Zoology.
The Chief Guest of the day, Dr. Reeta Mani, Associate Professor, Department of Neurovirlogy, NIMHANS captivated the audience with her thought provoking and intriguing talk on ‘Emerging Viral Diseases’. The lecture was followed by a highly interactive session with the students. The Dean of Science, Professor Nanjegowda and the Life Science Department HOD, Father Jobi Xavier addressed the gathering and wished the Association good luck for all its upcoming endeavors.
In short, the inauguration of the Life Science Association that took place on the 18 June 2015, was a well organized event that inspired the young minds to work towards the success and enrichment of both themselves as well as the Association.
