The main aim of this event was to introduce our Collegiate Social Responsibility (CSR) Club to the first years and others who do not have complete knowledge of the functioning, objectives and motives of our club.
The orientation session began at the MRD Auditorium starting with an inaugural song followed by a welcome speech, lighting of the lamp by chief guests, talk by the chief guests as well as by an alumnus of PES who was a part of CSR Club. The chief guests were Dr. D. Rajasekharappa and Dr. T. Mahalakshmi. The guest of honour was Mr. Nithin. The chief guests and guest of honour were honoured for their esteemed presence.
We, the club of CSR showcased our past events and endeavors to everyone present with us for the orientation with the help of a small video. Just as importantly, our new mascot of the club was revealed to all.
The last and the most exciting part of the event was the Treasure Hunt. Treasure Hunt started from MRD Auditorium, where we displayed our first clue on the screen, followed by six other clue spots across the campus. The participants were running across the campus finding clues. Students in teams of 2 or 3 were allowed to participate in the treasure hunt which consisted of many rounds where the clues to the next destination were given only on completing a given task in that current location.
The treasure hunt was a fun and exciting game that the first years loved and played with utmost enthusiasm.
The whole event was directed and controlled well by the council members and the volunteers. The registrations for the Orientation - Treasure Hunt were taken on online mode from 13/09/2022 to 14/09/2022 and on spot registrations at 3:30 PM on 16 th September 2022. The treasure hunt was won by the first three teams to complete the tasks and was awarded chocolates and saplings as a part of the CSR motive to grow more plants or trees in society.
