Clubs : Giving a new direction to growth
No holistic development is complete without the active involvement of club activities in student life. The exposure to such activities has taken the growth of students to a new frontier. Acharya has established several clubs across all its conglomerate institutions to aid in this development. These clubs vary from nature clubs to psychology clubs to dance clubs to cine clubs and much more. Students on campus actively take part in these clubs and conduct events to engage students in various activities. The effort of the nature watch club through tree plantation, seed bombing, vermi composting, rainwater harvesting, etc., has been recognised by AICTE with the award for the second-best green campus. iCare has been actively undertaking CSR activities, from helping improve quality of life in villages to visiting old age homes and orphanages spreading smiles, the i-Care group of Acharya is one of the most socially active clubs in the city.
