CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS
We have active department associations headed by the elected union in an academic year which conducts active programs and department wise fests in the year.Apart from the IT,Civil,Mechanical,Electronics,Electrical Associations we also have very active IEEE Students branch,ISTE Students Chapter and also CSI Students branch in the college.

SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE
Alchohol use at the campus is low in comparison with the colleges in the city but however it isnt negligibly low. But however we do not have bars or pubs in the locality except for a few well run restaurants which feed the students in the college at very low rates. The politics in the college however lasts only till the college union elections in an academic year.There is a very peaceful ambience in and around the campus rest of the time in an academic year.But still the political drama exists and sometimes even tires the students during the election times. Both girls and boys are equalluy treated in the college both by the administrators and also by the fellow students.
