Shoolini University celebrated International Youth Day by organising various activities, both online and offline. These events included a cooking competition, Global Alumni Meet and a webinar on Youth Spiritual Awakening.
The cooking competition was inaugurated collectively by Shoolini University Vice-Chancellor Prof Atul Khosla and Pro-Vice-Chancellor Mr Vishal Anand. They were all praises for the participants after tasting the delectable dishes they had prepared. They also asked the participants to share the recipes with the faculty of hotel management at the University. Such events should be held at least once a month, they said.
Participation in the cooking competition was open to everyone — national and international students — along with all faculty and staff at the university. International students from Syria and Ethiopia participated enthusiastically in the event, preparing the local cuisine of their respective countries. National students and faculty members represented the states of Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Punjab, and Himachal Pradesh.
In another event, Yogananda Centre for Theology organised ‘Youth Spiritual Awakening’ on the occasion of the International Youth Day. The event was inaugurated by Shoolini University Chancellor and YCT Patron Prof Prem Kumar Khosla. He was accompanied by Prof Sunil Puri and Prof YS Negi. The event was judged by Dr Rajesh Sharma, Dean Sciences, and Dr Chander Mohan Gupta, Assistant Professor at the School of Law.
Addressing the students, Prof Khosla said they should make meditation a part of their lifestyle for a fulfilling life. “It is important to create a balance between their spiritual and materialistic lives,” he added.
On International Youth Day, Shoolini University also hosted a virtual Alumni Meet with its former students spread across the globe. Interacting with the students pursuing studies at Shoolini, the alumni guided them on how to crack global scholarships when they chose to study abroad.
