The campus life of the Sri Sri University is a vibrant amalgamation of tech-fest, B-fest, cultural and retro nights to Classical Sangeet Sandhya and Odissi.
This unique blend preserves the ancient rich heritage and tradition of our country as well as appreciates the western inputs. The culture of Sri Sri University is in one word a perfect portrayal of “Unity in Diversity”.
The campus is not only inclusive to the diversified background of people but also lives in symbiosis with different cultural tastes, events, and traditions.
From student-run clubs to the buzzing events, the art and culture of the Sri Sri University have this unique aura hovering all upon it.
The various events line up consists of:
Open-Mic (Which is a weekly event in the Open-air cafe to explore one’s talents)
Festivals like Ganesh Chathurthi, where an elaborate 10 days event is orchestrated.
In addition to that, every regional festival is celebrated like Utkala Divas, Nobo-Barsha, GudiPadwa, Lohri, Pongal and etc.
Christmas Carnivals and eloquent New Year Bonfire Parties with Dj are a common glare of campus life.
The most inquisitive event of all is the University’s annual cultural fest of Orion. The fest is recognized as one of the top ten youth festivals in Odisha.
Orion fest redefines the perception of celebration, and the campus culture strongly reverberates with the same. The year-round fest brings forth a combination of ESR Activities, Personality development Workshops, and an incredible 3-day extravaganza at the end of it all.
Orion houses several fun activities of Sports, B-Fest, Agri-fest, Banjara Camp, and a lot more.
While it’s all fun and participation, the institution also focuses on spiritual growth and development so that individuals associated with the organization are able to handle their minds and emotions constructively and excel in their respective domain areas.
And so The Art of Living’s ‘Happiness Program’ is conducted for all the new entrants. The program has a world record for increasing happiness quotient.
The ‘Sudarshan Kriya’, a powerful rhythmic breathing technique taught in the Program aids in mental clarity, eases the build-up of emotions, and uplifts one spiritually.
In the words of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Lifetime President of the University, ‘It is time to encourage our youth to see beyond limited identities, and to see beyond limited intentions, and to associate with the common humanity that we are all part of. It is time to tear down the walls between cultures and celebrate diversity. It is time to connect at the heart-to-heart level and let go of the negative emotions.’
It helps students develop a strong foundation to achieve individual goals and also work towards the collective good. It draws forth clarity in observation, perception, and expression.
Students develop a passion for volunteerism in nation-building.
