student activities are promoted through a number of student clubs. The clubs

Journalism Club, Cultural Club, Social services Club, and Sports Club.
The clubs are having student
committees administered by the Moderator (Faculty Member).The club activities
are coordinated by the Students Directorate headed by the Director of Student
Affairs assisted by the Coordinator Student Affairs. The Directorate provides
all sorts of support services to the student clubs. The clubs are engaged in
continuous innovation and intellectual creativity.
