Querencia is the Annual Inter-Disciplinary, Inter-University Fest organized by School of Business Studies and Social Sciences, CHRIST (Deemed to be University), Bannerghatta Road Campus, Bangalore on September 16 and 17, 2019.
The name ‘Querencia’ signifies drawing strength from one’s true self where one feels at home – giving individuals from different disciplines a common arena to come together and display their strengths and overcome their weaknesses. In this spirit, the disciplines have been divided into six clusters and three stand-alone events which are Grandstand, B-Plan and Conundrum.
The two-day extravaganza will witness the coalescence of the finest exponents of critical and creative acumen as the students compete in a series of events so as to emerge victorious.
