There are tons of clubs in UG, and students clubs in general. The most powerful of which is the Student\'s Council. There are also department specific clubs. We UGs conduct an annual tech cum cultural fest, Pravega. It\'s fun, and we face the real drill since there are very less students to manage the entire things and hence participation by nearly every student becomes crucial. The institute organises the annual freshers and orientation ceremony, Sangam, wherein different cultural events take place. Life depends upon how you perceive. You get the freedom to choose.
