A broad programme of extracurricular activities supplements the liberal arts programme. The student chooses those which will contribute most to her enjoyment and development. Through participation in extracurricular activities she may test and develop interest in such areas as music, drama, athletics, social service, debate, literature and current affairs. Whatever her special interest are she finds opportunity to associate informally and work cooperatively with others.
The student groups include the Literary Club, the History Club, the Debating Society, the Current Affairs Club, the Dramatic Society, the Dynamic World Club and Cultural Club. These are organised and conducted by the students themselves.
The college has a carefully planned programme of National Service Scheme (NSS) under the University of North Bengal. There are two NSS units under two NSS Programme Officers in the College which have been active doing social service to the disadvantaged neighbouring areas.
Each year we have an NSS camp and our girls live and work with the village people for period of seven days, helping in the primary schools, undertaking afforestation projects, health and hygiene programmes, making a survey of social and economic conditions and doing any service which would be of help to the people all this in close collaboration with the Block Development and other officers. Adult education is an important feature of the camping programme, women being given special attention.
A follow-up programme is always a part of the camping programme and this continues throughout the year.
There are opportunities to exercise literary skill in the College magazine “Contextures”. This includes a Nepali, Bengali, Hindi and English section.
The Student Representative System
The college has a Student Representative Council (SRC) for leadership training. It is responsible for the maintenance of discipline among the students and representing students views to the College authorities.
The SRC consists of a Head Councillor and Councillors elected from third and second year students through secret ballot. Councillors hold office for one academic year with a provision for re-election, The investiture ceremony following the election is one of the high points of the academic session.
