Vivekananda Study Circle
The Study Circle was inaugurated in 1974 with a view to inspire the staff and students of this College with the ideals of Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda. A regular study of the Ramakrishna – Vivekananda literature and other important Hindu scriptures is done under the inspiring guidance of the Rector Maharaj. The student wing is studying Life and Works of Swami Vivekananda. Students who attend classes regularly will get a certificate at the end. Classes are generally held once or twice a week during lunch recess. Those who want to join the Study Circle may contact the Professor-in-charge of the Study Circle.
