Extra Curricular Activities
We believe in the holistic and complete learning of a student that includes and involves not just academics but co-curricular activities too. Our campus provides in-house opportunities for students to develop healthy lifestyles by exercising through different methods and games and through interactive indoor games the team spirit and general solidarity between students is enhanced. We even organise discussions and debates to help students express their opinions in a healthy and yet competitive manner.
The purpose of an Induction Program is to prepare the students for their course of study and ensure a smooth transition into their college life. BITS organises a two weeks Induction Program for the incoming batch each year to motivate and welcome the students, so that they can enthusiastically look forward to this big and yet scary change in their lives with positivity. It is also to make them enter into their professional lives with confidence. The program includes basic english, maths, physics and computer sessions, Yoga and Zumba classes, Human Values and PDP sessions, Sports and Fun activities and Industrial Visit to a Nearby Industry.

Fresher party means the welcome party for newcomers in the college by their immediate seniors. This party is also known as interaction day between junior and senior to get familiarised with each other and built a healthy friendship. Fresher party is a very old ritual in colleges that occurs after the seniors try to act superior initially with the fresher’s but then hold this party for their juniors, to show their love and support for the coming years.
College Farewell parties are always an exciting affair and bring alive a lot of excitement and give many happy memories. Pre-final year students of all branches of BITS organise a Farewell Party to bid adieu to the outgoing students of each year.
The function starts by welcoming the final year students of all branches with Tilak ceremony and present roses as a token of love and forward blessings. The girl students are adorned in sarees, the boys complement them in formals. The event comprises of several dance and singing performances and to make the event more entertaining and engaging, a game of tongue twister is also played. The seniors share their experiences during their stay at BITS. The main attraction of the event has become the fashion show put up by the juniors that also gives them an opportunity to showcase their talent on the ramp. In which after three rounds, the judges declare the names of winners. The Honorable Management congratulates the winners and presents mementos and title sashes to the winners.
Finally, the event closes with presenting a gift and titles to each student of the outgoing batch as a token of love and blessings and wishing them bright careers and a happy life ahead. It is followed by a vote of thanks and having snacks and drinks together.
The biggest function for any college is its Convocation Ceremony and the highest honors for any student or academician is to receive his/her degree in a grand ceremony.
BITS Ghaziabad prides itself on its broad based engagement of students in its various activities. The Convocation at BITS marks the culmination of student’s engagement with the college and serves as the starting point for their future journey ahead outside of studies and college life. The occasion celebrates the achievements of each student and recognizes the central goal of the college, namely student engagement, enlightenment and excellence. The event mirrors the college’s culture of caring for and inspiring its members to look forward with confidence and positivist. BITS through its students and through the Convocation serve to portray this feeling of oneness.
Festivals are essential to the Indian culture, and we at BITS celebrate each with colour, laughter and happiness. Holi celebrations are held each year wherein students and staff participate together in this colourful event. While we believe in celebrating naturally with flowers and dry colours, but there is enough excitement with the availability of chaat, thandai, dhol, music, dance and fun.
Diwali is celebrated at BITS to appreciate good over evil and various ways to celebrate the festival are done. A fete (mela) is organised where students setup stalls for fun games, food and Diwali gift items. Also various competitions such as candle making, rangoli making, diva decoration, etc. are held.
We believe that health is wealth, and the more natural the better, so what better an exercise than our age-old legacy of yoga. We at BITS hold a yoga session each year in the morning on International Yoga Day, beginning with breathing exercises, stretching and then asanas. The yoga session is followed by a healthy and nutritious breakfast of fresh fruits, sprouts and fresh fruit juices. This encourages students to take up a healthy lifestyle for their own well being.
Engineers day at an Engineering college! We celebrate this day with various seminars and workshops that are conducted for student’s benefit. Also various competitions are organised by each technical department to aid students in applying their knowledge outside of classrooms. Debates are held to help students think outside the box.
Teachers are our gurus for life, mentors that guide us and help us find ourselves. Hence we celebrate this day with much gusto and aplomb, with a cultural programme conceptualised and presented by students that includes dancing, singing and poetry. This day marks the students thanking their teachers for being a parent like figure to them, by presenting them with flowers and small gifts. They also perform skits and drama based performance on any relevant classroom based theme.
For the teachers there are games organised to have fun outside of the classrooms for once, ranging from pass the parcel to sort the rice.
