Overall, the event was a huge success. It reiterated the fact that life at SSBF isn’t all about academics. The focus is on overall development of a student.

SANGRAAM is an annual intra-institute event organised by the Sports Committee of Symbiosis School of Banking and Finance, usually where the junior and the senior batch participate in a variety of sports ranging from Badminton to Volleyball to Cricket to Basketball. Everyone, including the students, the faculty as well as the staff, looks forward to playing in Sangram every year, not only because it provides a break from the mundane routine of classes, presentations and projects but also because it refreshes our minds, help us enhance or maintain our physical health and also to get to know each other outside of the college environment.
