That is the time a Counselor can be of help. Talking to a Counselor would relieve your tensions and thus help you to get back to your feet again. There may be certain issues that are very personal and are interfering with your work and normal functioning. Peer group may sometimes be unable to understand them.

Being away from home into a new environment can also put you in a distressing situation at times. A Counselor can help you to feel more comfortable in your new set-up. The Counselor is the person you can turn to whenever you need to discuss some difficult situations of your life. The Centre provides total privacy to students who need guidance and counseling. All matters discussed are kept strictly confidential. Counselor is available in the office on all working days.

It is constantly evolving ways to support and foster students' interest in the campus. A number of activities are held every year to ensure that the growth of students is not limited to classrooms alone.
  • Our idea is to help students reach their highest potential in the areas of intellectual curiosity and personal well-being. We are committed in providing students a wide variety of opportunities to explore leadership styles along with scope for cultivating and practicing new skills.
