An Alumni get together was held on the 3rd September, 2011 as part of Golden Jubilee Celebration of the Institute of Home Economics. The evening of the 3rd, brought together alumni from both the Diploma (1968) and the first batch of the Degree (1972) courses as well as the most recent pass outs.
The meet provided an opportunity for the alumni to interact with each other, revive old memories and relive a part of the past. It was interesting to see how they had evolved both personally and professionally over the years.
The event was flagged off by a welcome address by Dr. Chitra Arora (President of the Alumni Association). Dr. Kumud Khanna, Director of IHE and Dr. S. Malhan, Founder Director of IHE warmly interacted with the audience and shared fond memories of the past. They requested the alumni to remain in regular contact with the alumni association and the college.
On this occasion, Dr. Malhan was felicitated with a scroll which expressed the heartfelt thoughts and sentiments of every IHEian.
A very important part of the evening was electing the Executive Body for the Alumni Association.
- Dr. Chitra Arora as President
- Ms. Nymph Kaul Puri as Vice President
- Ms. Radha Singh as Secretary
- Dr. Jyoti Aggarwal as Treasurer of the Association.
This was followed by a colourful cultural programme which included a Quawalli and a contemporary choreography presented by the current students of IHE. The event ended with interactions among the faculty and the alumni over dinner where the passage into memory lane continued.
