Geography: Society

The department organises a number of activities to enable students to showcase their talents and organising skills, while learning the values of teamwork. The previous academic year rolled off with an Orientation Programme in July followed by a Fresher’s Party in August.

A Pictionary Contest was organised in September and a Debate in October. Students also went on a field trip to Bharatpur and Sariska in September. A Quiz Contest was conducted in January and a local excursion to the Aravalli Biodiversity Park was organised in February.

In March the department organised Shivalik 2016, its annual Geofest. Professors Jaishree Sharma and H Ramachandran were the two eminent speakers invited to address the audience. Their lectures were followed by a number of student contests in poster making, extempore speech, photography, map pointer and Quiz. Students of geography from other colleges participated enthusiastically in the event. The department also released its annual magazine, also called Shivalik, as part of the festival.
