Sports infrastructure for community health
The college has a campus of nearly 22.5 acres and has very good sports infrastructure facilities. The optimum utilization of sport infrastructure is thought to be achieved through a social cause and hence our college, in consultation with management, has decided to utilize our resources through a distinct activity named as “Sports Infrastructure for Community Health”. The activity was initiated with an objective to provide sports infrastructure to different stakeholders and the local community. This will help to boost the mind set and create health awareness for better quality life. The activity will foster and promote cordial relationship among the stakeholders. The college not only allows utilization of sports infrastructure but also organizes workshops on physiotherapy, mental health and nutrition for senior citizens. Nowadays when society is facing space problem and not having suitable infrastructure in the city, the activity has become an essential and add-on facility for local community.
