VIJAYAWADA: The commerce department of Andhra Loyola College (ALC) on Sunday made elaborate arrangements for the two-day national edutainment programme, BEMUS-15 to be held in its campus from September 7.
The commerce fest is being organised after a gap of two years and will be attended by over 700 students from different colleges in Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala, West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh states.
Income Tax principal commissioner K Ajay Kumar (Vijayawada), who is an alumnus of ALC, will be the chief guest for the programme, while management consultant MC Das will be the guest of honour.
The programme will be held in two levels - national-level for graduates and state-level for Intermediate students.
“Bemus is a Greek name for platform and we have named the commerce fest of our college as Bemus, with an objective to make it a right platform for the students in exhibiting their skills and inherent talents. It will also act as a platform for the commerce students from different colleges in different states to interact and exchange notes,” said NA Francis Xavier, Bemus convener and commerce department head.
The two-day programme will have six events including The Footie Fest (group dance), Witty Knights (quiz), Jalapeno (group discussion), Bizmart (product launching), Mr. Genius (case study) and Few Minutes to Fame (personality contest).
“This year’s programme is sixth edition. For various reasons including the situations that developed during and after bifurcation, we have not conducted the event. This will be the first one to be held in the reorganised state of AP,” he said.
