Bidding farewell to the freezing Delhi winters, the College welcomes the early spring in February by organizing it annual three-day Festival, Surlok. Giving students a perfect opportunity to shake a leg or grab lip-smacking bites of food, the festival bears witness to a huge turnout—a footfall of around 2500-3000 students from other colleges of Delhi NCR—each year.
This festival is the joint endeavour of Student Union and Art & Culture Society (AnC) of the college and includes competitive events like Saptak (Indian Classical Choir), Desi Beats (Folk Dance), Aaroh (Solo Singing), Taal (Solo Instrumental), Gen Y Trivia (Quiz), Kaagaz-E-Kaarigari (Poster Making), ChitraKatha (Photography), Beat Pe Booty (Solo Dance), Move ‗N‘ Groove (Western Dance), Escape Room (Treasure Hunt), 50 Seconds to Fame (Talent Show), Dramebaaz (Mono Acting), Retrato (On the Spot Fashion Photography Competition), Kaavya Mela (Poetry Recitation), Pen Yourself (Creative Writing), and Dekh Tamasha (Street Play). All these competitions take place for the first two days, while the third day remains the most sought-after day as it is exclusively devoted to the performance of an invited singer who comes to perform in front of students. For this day, the college has the honour of inviting series of celebrity singers who all have regaled students with their performances.
The festive mood begins with the coming of February itself as the preparations for the Festival start in earnest. The Art and Culture Society hold Mini Surlok in the beginning of the month to screen the talent that participate in the final mega-event. Nepathya, the dramatic society of the college, also hold their screening event to choose eight finalists who participate in Surlok to vie for the final positions. All college societies come together to decorate the premises for a spirited look and welcome the guest student-participants and audience from other colleges.
