The 8th of July, 2017 was indeed a day to remember for the students and faculty of the BSW department as the inaugural ceremony for the Vidiyal Forum took place. The campus was lively and lit with smiles of the students who were eagerly waiting for their first insight in what entailed for them in their service to society. Glimpses of the past events and achievements of the Vidiyal Forum was recalled, following which Inspiring and thought provoking speeches were rendered by our chief guest, Smt. Saroja Thiruvengadam, Deputy Director (Retd) Directorate of Social Welfare and our guest of honor, Mrs. Smithra Prasad, General Secretary, DORAI Foundation. It was indeed an interactive session where students could learn in depth about the fundamentals and diversities of social work. The most awaited part of the day, the Investiture Ceremony was held where the upcoming leaders accepted their responsibilities with pride and pledged their commitment. The entire program was graced by our principal, Mr. Raja Samuel, Mrs. P.K. Vathani HOD, BSW Department, and our beloved faculty members. As one of our esteemed chief guests had mentioned, what better a way to start such an honorable mission rather than having a burning desire to illuminate the society and thereby ourselves.
