Immanuel College Dimapur observed its 25th annual social & cultural day under the theme, “Enriching Amalgamation of Achievements” at the college campus in Lengrijan on Friday.
Speaking during the program as the special guest, commissioner of police Dimapur, Limasunep Jamir borrowed a line from the book of Leviticus saying that the celebration of jubilee was a covenant between God and the people, which was a time to forgive one another. He reminded the students that it was the best time of their lives for they were still in the growing stage -- a stage with open and receptive minds and willing to accept new things.
Jamir was impressed on hearing the ambitions of the students, which he termed as ‘diverse’, unlike in his own time when the focus was only on government jobs. He asserted that today, academicians, educationist, and psychologists talk about multiple intelligence rather than IQ, which, he said, was a traditional mode to appraise students. He opined that a degree was only a gate way does not guarantee success or achievement in life.
He encouraged the students to always leave a legacy of sincerity, uprightness and honesty for their children and grandchildren.
Jamir also spent some time discussing dishonourable and honourable achievements, the latter of which he said could be achieved with intellectual and moral virtue.
Immanuel College governing body chairman, Dr. Loso Chalai, in his exhortation speech, urged the students to prove their capabilities by producing better results in the days to come. 
According to him, there are many evil things and causes for frustration in today’s society, unlike in the ancestral times, when the people were known for their honesty, truthfulness, and boldness. 
Taking the example of the special guest, he said that it was a motivation and challenge for students to emulate him and work hard like him to become successful. He further called upon the students to change their attitudes by working hard and suffer first, and celebrate later, rather than enjoying today and suffering tomorrow.
Benthungo Kikon (BA I) and Miechelle Murry (Class 11 Arts) were adjudged as Mr. And Miss Freshers respectively. Hito S. Mech (BA I), Meheli Magh (BA I), Kamugha Chishi (Class 11 Arts) and Anung Nokdir (BA I) were adjudged as Mr. Personality, Miss Congeniality, Mr. Talent and Miss Talent respectively.
