To excite the students even more, energetic and good-looking participants from each department were presented. Instead of the usual pageant style of deciding the winners of the Mr. & Miss Intramurals by having a Q&A, the participants were able to undergo different levels of tests. More details of the Mr. & Miss Intramurals are on the separate post.

College of Education – First to Raise the Banner

To officially start the Intramurals, torch lighting was performed in a unique way. Engineering department of HNU came up with the idea of a domino effect style of presenting the games that end up with the lighting of the torch. The HNU oval had been laid out with different obstacles. After all the obstacles were passed, the drone suddenly appeared to the delight of the students.

Everyone cheered as the drone went up and down. The loud cheers was heard even more when the drone went nearer to the torch. With the hit of the drone on the upper part of the torch, the fire went down to the torch which made the torch to light and signaled as the official start of the HNU Intramurals.
