H2 mess. 9.30 p.m. 16th august, Monday. till around 12.15 a.m.
The speakers club freshie orientation started off with much fanfare and bad amplifier
A turnout of around a 100 plus freshies came enthusiastically for the orientation,
waiting to see what it was all about, and with the bias of a convener I say , they were
satisfied and more.
The orientation started with an introduction of extempore events, done by the seniors,
events like alphabetical story telling and scenes from a hat, were an instant hit and got
loads of participation from the freshers.
They were then introduced to JAM , a popular IIT pastime. Even here they absorbed it
with much gusto, and many of them stayed back later to see one in action as well.
Finally we got down to the serious stuff, introducing parliamentary debate, with
the topic THW allow performance enhancing drugs in sports competions. First the
freshmen were made to discuss, after which 4 speakers gave speeches with shobhit
explaining the flow of the debate.
