The 211th Educational Meeting or “Gavel Soorya Mangalya” was held successfully on the 20th of April at the Economics Auditorium in the Faculty of Arts UOC.

In the early months of 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic stormed the world and put everyone in their homes without even giving them time to make any arrangements. This affected Gavel UOC too.

Who are we kidding? We never wanted to go back to the place of lengthy lectures, endless assignments, and finally the […]
A quick recap of the Joint Meeting between the Gavel Clubs of University of Colombo and University of Sri Jayawardenepura. The 7th of May 2020 was a special day for us all; not because the curfew was miraculously lifted or the virus disappeared, but because we finally had the chance to see new faces and […]
