Student Associations - DCP
A well-rounded development of an individual is the main goal of extracurricular activities at any college. By working together with peers, students learn to negotiate, communicate, manage conflict, and lead others. Taking part in these out-of-the-classroom activities helps students to understand the importance of critical thinking, time management, along with academic & intellectual competence. Involvement in activities helps students mature socially by providing a setting for student interaction, relationship formation, and discussion. Working outside of the classroom with diverse groups of individuals allows for students to improve self-confidence and to develop an appreciation for others’ differences and similarities.
Students also develop skills specific to their career path and imperative for future job success. Extracurricular involvement allows students to link academic knowledge with practical experience, which leads to a better understanding of their own abilities, talents, and career goals. Future employers seek individuals with developed “soft” skills.

From cultural activities to management events, the Events Committee covers it all. Also, they conduct an annual fest named Vaudeville that brings in a large crowd for participation and leads to healthy competition.
