The Design Village Hosts Orientation Program
The students had an eventful day which allowed them to settle in the new environment and be comfortable with their peers
The Design Village (TDV) organised an Orientation Program to welcome its 9th batch who took admission in UG and PG courses. Orientation day aimed to make students acquainted with the surroundings and meet the other villagers on the campus. The objective of the event was to give the new students information about their chosen design discipline and familiarise them with the various resources at The Design Village. The objective of the event was to help students adjust to the campus through a series of activities and sessions organised as part of the orientation program.
The event started with the introductory sessions from the founders of TDV, Sourabh Gupta and Mridu Sahai. While addressing the students Sourabh shared interesting design products with the students and explained design aspirants how design can change the world. With this note, Sourabh welcomed all the freshers and wished them all the best in their future endeavors.
Later, the Associate Dean of Academics & Associate Dean of Outreach and Operations introduced the whole family at the Design Village, so students get familiar and directed to the right person when required.
The day was filled with activities, first being a ‘write your wish list’ where students were encouraged to outline their goals and dreams and tie them to the Champa tree, which is significant to TDV as the tree is the root of its foundation. Also, students had an interactive session where they shared their skills and expertise so their batchmates can learn about them.
The highlight of the orientation day was the ice-breaking activity where students were divided into teams and were allotted ice cubes with a prompt to accelerate their creative aspects. The students had an eventful day which allowed them to settle in the new environment and be comfortable with their peers.
