Clubs and Associations

The college has different clubs and associations to offer students a healthy diversion from studies and to make them see the other aspects of life. Membership in various clubs and associations is open to all the students of the college. An active participation in these co-curricular activities will help students expand their horizon and learn beyond the classroom curriculum

The Structure of Clubs and Associations

The principal is the ex-officio president and the finance officer is the ex-officio treasurer of all the associations and clubs.

The activities of the clubs and associations are taken care of by its staff coordinators. They are the decision makers who guide and motivate students. However, the activities of these clubs and associations are primarily driven by the enthusiasm of its student members.

These students are actively involved and are responsible for the functioning of the associations.
