Events Committee

We here at the Events Committee bring colour and joy into SIMSREE.

From the flagship event – Simerations to the Gujarati Garba Night and the Annual House Cup – we bring it all to town! We strive to get the best possible events to campus, for our peers to enjoy!

The events we put up help students (and the faculty) to get their brains out of their textbooks and their dozy faces into the sun. Not to mention, this brings them back to their lectures with better and fresher minds.

The Simerations Fest is something all students at SIMSREE look forward to. It’s a 3 day extravaganza with so much fun being brought to the table! From the grandeur and classy feeling it thrives on, to the wonderful events put up in the fest itself – Simerations stands out for a new reason every year, whether it’s Sports, Management or Cultural events!

After this vicious display of strength, skill and stamina, the students gear up later in the year for the Garba Night. Wearing traditional outfits and their smiles, Garba Night has students showing off the Desi culture with friends, teachers and guests all through.

The House Cup would NOT be the same without us. The event brings guys and gals out to the tracks, putting on their sneakers and shorts after a tiring semester. And the cut throat competition to win various events makes everything oh so interesting!!

We here at the Events Committee don’t claim to bring all the fun to these parties, but you have to remember, that without us – there’d be no party.
