NUST International Model United Nations-NIMUN 2013, kicked off with high hopes; and ended with a bang! Not only was the event a huge success for NUST but it also gave the delegates who had come for the event something to cherish in the years to come. NUST International Model United Nations started as a sequel of the MUN organized last year. The student body was looking forward to an equally well executed event this time round and as anticipated, NIMUN was a booming success.
The event consisted of four days of debating and fun-filled social gatherings. The first day was spent registering the delegates and accommodating them in the hostels. The members of the registration team were busy throughout the day. The opening ceremony marked the beginning of NIMUN and was followed by the Global Village. The delegations set up stalls and portrayed the customs, culture and cuisine of the countries that they were representing. Unfortunate were the ones who missed the Ramp Walk, with the participants displaying their cultures on-stage in vibrant colors and amazingly real costumes.
The second day began with committee sessions and saw some heated debates. With a total of 12 committees and polished chairs heading them, NIMUN’2013 truly set the bars high. Day two ended with a fantastic carnival for the delegates.
The delegates eagerly raised motions for entertainment sessions which provided them with a much needed respite from the tiresome debates and lightened up the atmosphere with some singing and dancing which highlighted talents in all the very composed debaters.
The formal dinner was themed "1920’s"and the delegates dressed up displaying the vintage fashion in flesh. The ambience created via décor team’s efforts blew away everyone who stepped inside the hall. A round of ‘Tambola’ kept the delegates entertained before the grand dinner was served.
The final day marked the end of the four day conference. The rector and other dignitaries presented the awards to the winning delegates. Floating news of a ‘surprise’ event engulfed everyone in mystery, the event turned out to be a mime act by NUST Debating and Dramatics Society. NIMUN 2013 was sealed with a gorgeous lantern night and everyone bade farewell to the extravaganza under the brightly lit sky.
