As advised by the University Grants Commission, the College has commissioned the anti-ragging mentoring scheme .The scheme envisages the aid and assistance of the senior students to the freshers in combating the ragging menace. A group of four or five first degree students are put under the charge of a senior student and the senior is entrusted with the responsibility of taking care of the freshers under their charge in all matters, on the campus as well as in the hostel if the concerned freshers are hostel residents. The scheme offers the seniors the opportunity to offer their services for volunteering their time in a fantastic way to develop their mentoring skills and to make a difference to theirs and other students experiences. Our experience with the system so far has been highly encouraging, the mentors and the mentees expressing satisfaction over their conflict free their campus life and therefore we think that the system should continue with cosmetic changes in the years to come.
