About UVCE Payana

“UVCE Payana - 100 and Beyond”, a mega event to commemorate the Glorious Centennial Journey of UVCE whilst bringing forward the fervor and memories of the zealous UVCEians. We have had celebrations in honor of the Centenary Year with events like UVCE Centenary Marathon followed with the launch of UVCE’s Centenary Souvenir, “Avalokana” and now adding to the delight with Payana only to carry forward UVCE’s prestigious legacy for years to come.

UVCE Payana will be a two day event bringing together alumni and students to celebrate this historic moment. Building the stage for Alumni of myriad batches from across the world to congregate, Payana will provide the opportunity to beam on the footprints left behind by namma UVCEians. The two day celebrations will be encompassed by main agendas as Alumni Tech talks, Cultural programmes, Welfare Initiatives by Alumni to make UVCE better and many more interesting sessions.
The event is tentatively scheduled to be held during the last weekend of June, on 30th June and 1st July. With a helping hand from every alumnus, we intend to make ‘UVCE Payana – 100 and beyond’ an accolade to the marvellous journey of this prestigious and prodigious institution for which we all hold a great amount of respect and gratitude in our hearts.
