Clubs and Organizations

The formation of clubs depends upon the interests of students involved. Club members plan and implement social, cultural, educational and creative ventures outside the classroom. New clubs are organized through the Student Advisory Council. An average of 35 clubs and organizations are chartered within the College. The organizations stem from the social, academic and cultural interests of our students. In addition, if you want to start your own club, you will be provided with the necessary assistance for its development.
