THE NORTH EAST SOCIETY
For a long time, it was understood that there was a profound need for a platform to exhibit cultures from the North-East region and to address the lack of awareness about topical issues pertaining to the region. Keeping this in mind, The St. Stephen’s North- East Society was formed on the 1st of February, 2016. Over the past years, the society has worked towards bringing cultural awareness and integrating the North-East with the rest of the country within the college circle. Membership of the society is not limited to students from the region alone. The society has witnessed an increase in participation from members who are not from the region over the last few years. This is a testament to realizing the society’s aim of bridging the gap between the North East and the rest of the country and building a safe space for all.
Talks and Panel Discussions: The Society aims to bring awareness to the often ignored North-East region and shed light on new perspectives to restore power and agency of the people of the region. We try to achieve this by holding Talks and Panel Discussions.
North-East Lunch: Our Annual Lunch promises delicious and authentic dishes from the 8 states of the North-East
UNICOLOUR: This is the annual fest of The St. Stephen’s College North-East Society that best represents the society and what it stands for. Held in the even semester every academic year, students of the college from across the nation come together to celebrate the cultural diversity of the northeast region of India. Usually, performances, plays, and cultural attire shows are organised to showcase and spread awareness about the various cultures of the seven sisters and their brother.
Orchid: The annual journal has come to be one of the most widely read publications in the college, and is on to its seventh edition this academic year. Not only does it cover the society’s events of the academic year, but it also includes a number of articles and essays about a vast array of topics including but not limited to pop culture, politics, history etc.
Blog: Ideated in 2020 and realised in 2021, The St. Stephen’s North-East Society launched the long-fermented blog “The Hills Are Alive”. Much like how the North-East region houses a range of cultures and traditions; languages and folklores; beliefs and practices, the blog strives to maintain the same kaleidoscope nature.

Alumni Outreach: We want to take this opportunity to welcome all our alumni to our new initiative The Alumni Outreach Program. Through this, we seek to connect with the alumni from various batches and also other alumni from the region in the college who graduated before the society could come to fruition.
We wish to learn from the experience of various alumni and also extend our heartfelt gratitude to those alumni who made the society possible.
Help us in our journey of growth because as they say, “The journey is the reward”.
