CREXTAL ’15

The inter-college cultural festival organized by the college is called "Crextal". The enthusiasm of the Students led to the birth of Crextal’06, a cultural festival which received huge participation. The success continued from then on and received an equally overwhelming response. From 2009, "Crextal" is an intra-college festival. Crextal derives its name from the very qualities it hopes to exemplify Creativity, Excellence and talent among its participants and organizers alike. It hosts a variety of cultural events broadly split up into Performing arts, literary arts and Fine arts along with a variety of fun informal events for students to showcase their skills.

Theme, Motto:

The events of this year’s Crextalwere centred on famous Tv shows and series. The events take from these favourites and bring them to life at our very own campus. Our focus this year was also placed on sustainable development in preparation of the international conference held in February this year, in something we called the “Green Screen” Initiative. Crextal this year aimed at being bigger, better and greener that ever!
