Spring ’15 ended up at MCS on June 27th with the last final as well as the graduation of BESE-17(Software Outgoing Batch) and BETE-48(Telecom Outgoing Batch). It was a semester packed with fun events and recreational activities for the students, with a touch of emotions at the end for the departing degree, as narrated below:
So, the students witnessed the first mega event of this semester (the annual mega event of MCS) on March 6th when Myriad ’15 started with its all fun and adventures. The day one included the events MCSMUN, Bilingual Declamation, Futsal, E-gaming and Table Tennis. Many students from different universities participated in those events. The day one concluded with a funfair organized by the Myriad team.
The day 2 of Myriad started with more action packed events – much to the delight of the participants. And the gorgeous weather put the icing on the already scrumptious cake. Futsal, Graffiti, Talent Hunt, Dumb Charades, Scavenger Hunt and many more events were held side by side.
Incidentally the victory of Pakistan Cricket team later on that day gave everyone another reason to dance and celebrate on loud music.
MCS Myriad finally concluded on March 8th, 2015. The events included Finals of MUN and Futsal. Regrettably, the futsal final was not possible due to a heavy storm. However both the finalist settled on sharing the title and the prize money.
Finally there was Grand Tambola, the final event of Myriad. An unconventional Tambola had to be organized in an emergency situation because of the hailing. In the end the closing ceremony was conducted by Omer Khan. The chief guest was commandant Military College of Signals Maj Gen Ali Farhan.
