Students Activities & Clubs
The Photography Club was initially formed with the idea that Podar’s own students should photographically document all it’s various events conducted in the college premises. Over time it has expanded it’s scope to help students build photography as a hobby, through workshops and practical exposure. The Photography Club aims at nurturing budding photographers and generate an interest among the students to the world of photography.
The Podar Hikers' Club organizes TREKS for PODARITES throughout the Academic Year. It also conducts other activities like RAPPELLING, ROCK CLIMBING etc., which are generally carried out during ENIGMA & RAPPORT.
Apart from developing the spirit of adventure, the CLUB offers a good opportunity to the students to experience nature through trekking.
The Hikes are easily affordable and safe for students. The hikes play an important role in personality development too. We get to know our fellow Podarites especially Ex-Podarites. People come together and this helps build team spirit.
It is worth experiencing a hike with the CLUB especially if you are Podarite!
Podar nature club was established to promote the environmental awareness among the students which extends beyond classroom knowledge.
