Students Activities & Clubs
The National Service Scheme (NSS) was introduced in our college to establish a meaningful linkage between the campus and the community. The main objective of NSS is “Education and Personality Development of the Students through Service to Community”.
Education should not be confined to classroom teaching only. It is not merely acquirement of facts but also of values which help us improve the different facets of mankind. It ensures that we leave the world a far better place than we found it. A pivotal role of education lies in shaping the personality of a student into a healthy mind and happy soul, required not only for academic excellence but also to enable him/her to face the challenges of life in a balanced and harmonious way.
This can be achieved through National Service Scheme (NSS). Our mission is to inculcate principals, values and ideologies in the younger generation and make them aware of their commitment towards social and moral duties and initiate them into social community service.
The NSS volunteers are involved in multi-dimensional activities like laying of college garden, tree plantation, adoption of village, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, health camp, awareness programmes etc. The students may be placed in projects of adult education, welfare of slum dwellers, training in civil defense, traffic control, adventure sports, work in hospitals, orphanages, destitute homes.
