It’s being the first step of new group of intellectuals in the world of Engineering, all first years were warmly welcomed and introduced to our club –ROTARACT CLUB OF WCE SANGLI through the FE ORIENTATION MEET 2016. In this world, where engineering students are armed with technology, students also need to inculcate soft skills, awareness about society and professionalism in them. Also they must be aware of the happenings at international level, and once again the Rotaract club provided the platform for the same.
The Fe Orientation Meet started with the Presidential address given by Rtr.Likhit Unadkat. He welcomed first years in the college and motivated them to “Study for excellence and not for success”.
Further, Rtr. Shraddha Unhale and Rtr. Abhishek Patil introduced our club to the juniors. They gave a brief introduction of the 4 Avenues under which our club works.
