Entourage – Jai Hind College’s Inter-Collegiate Festival
Organized by students of the BAF, BBI and BFM courses of Jai Hind College, Entourage is an inter-collegiate festival, established in 2008.
It has been started from today and will continue for 2 more days at Jai Hind College, Mumbai. With three days dedicated to one activity each – Sports, Academic and Cultural, over 50 local and 10 national colleges are expected to participate.
The theme for this year’s festival is ‘Burn To Emerge’. Banking and finance students from various colleges in India will be seen actively participating. The creative and unconventional extra-curricular competitions in sports, fine arts, literary arts and performing arts are designed to help students exhibit their skills and knowledge.
Entourage holds pre-events and CSR activities through the year, as a build-up to the main event. In 2014, an event called Pyaas aimed to generate income by selling drinks across the city. The same year, in one of the biggest marketing events ever carried out by a college, the Entourage logo and the Jai Hind College logo were both projected on the Air India Building at Nariman Point. Last year, an event called Comedy Therapy starring comedians Kanan Gill and Sorabh Pant was organized to raise funds for the drought-affected farmers in Maharashtra.
Four pre-events were organized this year. April saw two social initiatives taking flight – ‘A Click of Colours’ and the ‘I for India March’ (IIMUN). Flash mobs across the city’s prime locations were held in August. In September, The Entourage Football Championship (EFC) saw students from the city’s best colleges compete for the cup. Entourage volunteers celebrated Children’s Day on 14th November with the children of Lions Club of (Bombay) Gateway.
This year, Entourage is set to bring India’s best talent under one roof!
