Class of 1996
The Class of 1996 celebrated their Silver Jubilee Reunion from 24 -26 Dec. 2022. More than 100 alumni got the opportunity to meet their friends along with their families. This reunion held a special place in their hearts as they were meeting their fellow alumni after two years of the pandemic.
In a one of its kind initiative, IIT Kanpur held its the first Alumni Day along with the Silver Jubilee reunion of the class of 1996. The institute saw the enthusiastic participation of 150+ alumni from across India and abroad. It was nostalgic as alumni from different batches (junior, seniors & batch mates) interacted with each other and recollected fond memories of their Alma mater.
Alumni day will now be an annual event celebrated at the IIT Kanpur campus on the last Sunday of December. IIT Kanpur has always valued its alumni and this day is our attempt to bring alumni back to the campus & make them feel a sense of nostalgia, camaraderie, and pride.
The Class of 1986 celebrated their 35th reunion from 20-23 Dec. 2022 with full fun and masti. One of the most enthusiastic batches of IITK, this batch played cricket, held dhaba-styled dinners, and to top it all, they got an old-fashioned tempo, the one they would ride during their IITK days. In 'Pol-khol' session, many secrets were revealed; the stand-up comedy by Mr. Manoj Nair and Mr. Vivek Srivastava made the audience roll on the floor, laughing. Three days of fun and frolic, and creating new and happy memories.
It was a reunion to remember for the Class of 1972 as they celebrated their 50th reunion in IIT Kanpur on 11-13 Nov. 2022. Alumni from around the globe attended a three-day event with their partners and loved ones that brought back memories of their life at the institute 50 years ago. An important milestone for them, where they rekindled and revisited their memories with their classmates, and commemorated this special day. The days were filled with activities such as a picnic to the nursery, fun and entertainment that showcased their talents in singing, dancing, music, poetry, etc., and a cam;pus tour that not only made them reminisce but also left them in awe to see the rapid expansion of the institute. They were happy and elated to share their life experiences and learnings with the interactive student engagement and provided them professional guidance.
