Student Clubs at a college are meant to help students get most out of their experience while they are enrolled at the college for their academic pursuits. These student clubs offer opportunities for student leadership and participation beyond classroom setup and academic programme. They provide a great platform to usher-in distinctive perspectives and life experiences that all students bring to the college. They help in students’ transformation and holistic development in a big way. Clubs are especially aimed at helping students to get involved and find their own niche on the college campus.
Further, being a part of a club or a society helps students to gain knowledge, skills and experience in leadership, communication, problem-solving, group development and management, finance, presentation and public speaking.

Art gives us a chance to rediscover ourselves. It builds a bridge between our senses and creative mind. Art can communicate information, shape our everyday lives, make a social statement, and also be enjoyed for its aesthetic beauty. It forces humans to look beyond what is necessary to survive and leads them to create for the sheer pleasure of expression and meaning.
Art makes us feel alive! With this spirit, the art club welcomes all artists in the college to a creative journey.
The aim of the art club is to encourage students to express their thoughts, feelings, and creativity through the various visual art forms. In addition, the club will inspire students to exercise their imaginative faculty and will try to expose them to different perspectives of viewing the world.
The club’s vision includes inclusion and creativity – everyone is welcome.

Dance is a form of expression of art that brings people together, allows them to be creative in new ways and is a fantastic way to escape the stress of everyday life. Dance embodies aesthetic values inherent in different societies and cultures, making dance forms different from one society to another. While dance develops confidence, it also enriches physical, creative, imaginative, emotional and intellectual capacities. It also offers one a structured outlet for emotional release while gaining awareness and appreciation of oneself and others.
The main aim of the dance club is to transform students into versatile, self-directed performing artists so that they can perform different dance techniques with attention to alignment, style, quality, weight and rhythm. The club also aims to help students learn valuable life skills such as responsibility, persistence, communication, skill and accountability through the practice of dance. It will also help students to get exposed to diverse cultural backgrounds and encourage them to be more open-minded and embrace diversity in society.
