22nd February 2018, Jalandhar: Jharkhand Chief Minister Raghubar Das honored Lovely Professional University (LPU) with AIU’s Overall (Runner-Up) National Championship Trophy. With this, LPU becomes the first private university of the country by lifting trophy of AIU’s UNIFEST-2018 ‘Palash’, where top government and private universities from across the country participate. Hosted by Ranchi University (Jharkhand), this 33rd national event was held at Khelgaon Campus by Association of Indian Universities (AIU). Proving supremacy once again and retaining the title among 1,600 institutions affiliated with 100 universities of the country, LPU students also grabbed the first prize for ‘Cultural Procession’; 5 first prizes and 6 seconds in 5 categories of the championship amid the toughest competitions. The mega event was sponsored by Ministry of Youth Welfare and Sports, Government of India. Considered as the biggest event for assuring further international participation, LPU students will now further participate in South Asian Universities Festival (SAUFEST) to be held at Gujarat in March 2018, where hundreds of foreign delegates will witness their talents.

Congratulating the winning students, LPU Chancellor Mr. Ashok Mittal said: “We are proud of our hard-working students, who have brought laurels to the university once again by winning so many prizes at the annual national cultural fest. I wish them all success in their future participation at the International level also. In fact, our students are continuously excelling others in each and every field- be it of research, placements, academics, sports, cultural or any other activity.” Mr. Mittal added: “At LPU, our students are mentored as the all-rounders so that they may be globally fit. It is always hard to believe that the students of hard professional programs can devote their time so judiciously that they come out with brilliant colors in whatever task they undertake.”

Winning students share: “When the name of LPU was announced as the winner for overall championship (runner-up) trophy, all of us got jubilant and danced madly. We are thankful to our mentors at LPU who made us practice throughout the year so that we may be winners. No doubt, it is a tough job to give proper time for academics and cultural activities side by side, but at LPU we are always guided to live up to our passions and excel others.” Illustrative, LPU has won these trophies and medals where thousands of students from universities of five zones of the country had competed.
