General Behavior & Discipline

The College administration understands discipline as controlled and ordered behavior that is civilized and ethical. It is the means to an end that is productive and gratifying. We seek to realize this discipline among our students internally through filial exhortation rather than by external coercion. Our aim is to nurture a humane yet dynamic sense of self among all our students. We strive to develop individuals who are calm, confident, alert and adventurous. At the same time we expect them to treasure values of solidarity and mutual respect. With such noble intentions the college administration has laid down the following rules of general behavior and discipline:

  1. Education is the harmonious development of the entire human personality by cultivating everything that is good, beautiful and noble in human nature. Hence it should be the earnest endeavour of all students not only to concentrate on studies but also to cultivate high and noble ideals of life and conduct. Students should take due interest in the moral, academic, cultural and physical activities of the college.
  2. Every morning we begin our work with a prayer song at 9.30 a.m. When the bell is given at 9.30 a.m. all the members of staff and students are requested to keep standing in silence till the prayer song ends.
  3. Every student shall endeavour in his/her talk, movements, dress and in dealings with the staff and outsiders to conduct himself/ herself, everywhere within the college premises and outside, in the manner worthy of a university student. He/she shall salute his/her teachers on the occasion of his/her first meeting them within the precincts of the college, and whenever he/she meets them in public.
