This also serves as a farewell dinner to the hostel students.
The event took place on the evening of the 22 October 2010 at the Science Building Square. The atmosphere was as if it was Christmas, with Christmas decorations, lights, Christmas carols and the students even dressed as if it was Christmas. The dinner served was also appropriate for the occasion.
