It is the desire of the college to bring the “whole person development” in the students, to imbibe in them the spirit of life, humanity and brotherhood, to lend a hand to those who are in need and to care for themselves and others. With this aim in mind we are glad that our college has launched a Youth Red Cross (YRC) wing on the 23rd September 2013 in which the students can enroll themselves to avail the opportunity of getting involved in different activities and social work, to build and broaden their outlook towards themselves and others and to be effective and fruitful individuals of the society.
