Cultural Activities


At FHMCT, the academic year is peppered with competitions, fests, and events. 

These cultural activities form the bedrock of the college experience. They nudge students out of their shell, encourage them to prove their mettle, and urge them to meet peers with similar interests. Students also get the chance to sharpen existing skills and talents while exploring new ones. 

These cultural activities help students broaden their horizons, teach them to work in teams, and equip them with the qualities of sportsmanship.

Fresher’s Day is a great way for senior students to break the ice with their juniors over fun and light-hearted games and events. Organized by second year students, Fresher’s Day includes activities like Air Crash, Minute to Win It, and the crowning of Mr and Ms Fresher. 

DJ Night

DJ Night is organised by students pursuing Bar and Beverage Management. Students handle everything from conceptualisation to planning, marketing, and execution. This gives them the opportunity to learn about the various aspects of event management and planning. 

In addition to guest DJs, budding DJs from the student body are given a chance to showcase their skills. Students studying mixology and bartending also get to put their learning into practice by serving mocktails to students at the event. 

Themed Lunches

Students regularly organise Themed Lunches that help them explore new cuisines and cultures.

During these lunches, everything from the food to the ambience and decorations and even the uniforms of the student servers are dictated by the theme.
