Attending college brings about a certain transition in a student’s life, including a new level of independence and responsibility. Once a student takes admission in a college, he or she develops new friendships and engages in a new social atmosphere in which he or she starts working towards his or her career goals. Many students find this task easier to embark upon by joining various clubs that fit their individual interests, needs, and goals. A specific club may satisfy several aspects of interest for a student, such as networking and to learn more about an academic or non-academic related subject. Above all this is the opportunity to socialize and meet new people. To engage students in experiences beyond classroom. The activities foster involvement, promote leadership and instil life skills ensuring personal and professional development.Our institute has “SAMANVAYA CLUB” which aims to bring the hidden qualities and talents of the students.

The climate is mildly hot during the summer (April–May), and pleasant during rest of the year, as it is at an altitude of about 750m, plus still has a lot of greenery round.
