This year, Sankalan was organized on 25th February, 2017 at the GLS Lawn. The Purple Flower musical band had performed on various song and the evening was a jazzy mix of classic rock and refreshingly new music of the world. As one of the oldest Rock bands in the city, Purple Flower, slowly moved from Beatles's melody to pick up the rhythm of Rare Earth. Their powerhouse performance rested on some heavy guitar and Vispi's drums that evoked thundering applauses from the young audience. The event ended up with a nostalgic note with a promise to meet again, reinforcing Sankalan, as one of the most awaited event of the year.

The institute has a strong network of over 1300 alumni members with whom it is in regular touch through various activities and events. GLS STAMP (Student Teacher Association of Management Program) organizes Sankalan - a reunion of alumni every year with the purpose of confluence between the past & future talent. The Alumni members are the ambassadors of the institute in the corporate & they continue to bring laurels to their alma mater in form of regular guest lectures and final placements. GLS management programmes aims at generating & maintaining a strong alumni network by reaching out to alumni & keeping them connected. At the institute's end, two faculty members are actively involved in maintaining the coordination of this association and expanding the already large alumni network.

GLS takes pride in showcasing achievements of its alumni. Any educational institution gets its name and fame from achievements of its alumni. Faculty members feel proud, staff elated and juniors inspired by achievements of alumni of the institute. All the achievers, time and again feel grateful to their alma mater. Occasionally they feel nostalgic to the moments they shared with friends during college days. But opportunity to meet all the old college friends rarely knocks, in the modern over busy life.
