Clubs and Associations

Students are encouraged to take part in the extra and Co-curricular activities in the college. Membership in any one of the associations of the college is compulsory. Each association is headed by staff coordinators who will guide and motivate the students. Student executive committees for each association/club will be formed with students of good academic record who in consultation with the staff coordinators will organize various activites of each association/club.
