SRHU’s calendar year speaks of diverse co-curricular and extra-curricular events for students.
Co-curricular events comprise of quizzes, debates, seminars, conferences and technical workshops organized by respective academic departments to hone professional acumen of the students. Many accomplished individuals from academia, industry and governance come for interactive sessions and share their invaluable experiences with the young students. Professionals deliver talks on the latest developments in their industry and also make students aware of the skill sets they must acquire to excel. Apart from this, the students undertake educational field visits and long in-company training to understand various aspects of environmental and social responsibilities.
Extra-curricular activities expose our students to a variety of cultural and community service programs. They participate in events such as sports, games, song & dance/ drama and other cultural activities besides volunteering in free eye & health check-ups, blood donation camps, etc. Owing to their tireless, zealous efforts SRHU has been increasingly successful in bringing awareness to the people in the region around fatal diseases and day-to-day health on one hand, and, helping shape happy, healthy, competent students on the other.
