After a successful debut, the event Media Monday organized by the final year students of the Advertising and Public Relations of the Department of Media and Communication gave another invite to all the passed out students to attend the second session of the event, also rightfully termed as a reunion.
This time, Media Monday was held on the 14th May 2012, in the university auditorium from 6pm till 10pm followed by dinner. The reunion was in association with AdFest 2012, an event  held under the patronage of Spectrum 2012, the annual departmental event that is brought to life by the first, second and final year  students of the Media and Communication department, and it showcased the Cannes Lion AD screening exclusively for the media students and alumni at the university.  Priyanka Geriya, an ex-student said on the Media dept.’s Facebook page, “the facilities are really!! Wish we cld come back n use them”.

The attending alumni seemed eager to come and visit their faculties and the new Manipal campus and felt warm and grateful for having Media Mondays. Davis Francis, a passed out student thanked the university saying, “A big clap to the media department for organizing the meet.  A big thanks to Joseph sir & Sanjay Nair sir for the detailed campus / media dept. tour, I extend my thanks to all the juniors for their help. It was very nice to meet & talk to some of juniors”. Head of Dept Mr. Joseph John took the students on a short tour of the campus, showing them the studios and labs belonging to the department. The reunion was quite a success this time around too!
