ACTIVITIES:

The Department of English to promote the students creative writing and leadership skills, organized a two day program on the 13th and 20th of November 2021 under the RUSA-Equity Initiative Scheme. We invited Mr. Sunny Mawlong and Mrs. Eva Wajri from the Hundred Fold Academy to be the trainers and help our students. The program on Leadership skills helped the students learn more on how to engage with a competing world and they learnt skills that would help them emerge as leaders confident in themselves and ready to face the challenges thrown at them. The program on Creative Writing will help budding writers from the college be even more confident to tap their creative and imaginative potential. Both the programs were a success and this initiative has really helped the students of the college.
