Renovation of the Assembly Hall
Appeal for help
Dear Fellow Stephanians,
Work is in progress towards transforming the College Assembly Hall
-of which all of us among the alumni have fond memories of the many
programmes, shows and ceremonies we attended- into a facility that
measures up to the stature of our Alma Mater.
You would know that our College has emerged at the top of the
nationally ranked list of the best colleges in India both in
humanities and sciences (India Today-Nielsen survey 2013). One of
the parameters for this assessment is infrastructure. I have been
relentlessly addressing, since 2007, the task of improving our
infrastructure which, beaten by weather and time, had begun to show
evident, even embarrassing, signs of wear and tear. The Assembly
Hall is an eloquent example of it.
The Assembly Hall Renovation Project is estimated to cost Rs. 1.4
crores of which nearly half has been mobilized. It is imperative
that the work is completed in time for the commencement of the next
semester (23 July 2013). Time, you can see, is running out.
I urge all Stephanians to contribute to this cause. You may send
your cheques/DDs favouring “St. Stephen’s College Alumni Foundation”
on the College address. How much you contribute is secondary to the
solidarity you feel with the College and your willingness to express
it in meaningful ways.
