The Alumni Association of the College was established as the ‘Old Students Association’ (OSA). It was assigned the role of facilitating communication between the present students and their Alma Mater, while also contributing to the development of the institution and the students. The OSA has contributed extensively to the all-round advancement of the institution. Some of the methods of their active involvement with the college are - Curriculum Development, Recognition and Rewards, Alumni Reunions, Alumni Activities, Industrial Visits and Expert Talks, Placement Drives and Cocurricular Activities.
Board of Studies & Academic Council :
The Alumni Association is actively involved in the academic revision mechanism of the college. Representatives from the OSA take part in the Board of Studies and Academic Council meetings and provide important suggestions on quality enhancement of teaching and learning processes.
In order to establish a concrete bond between the alumni and the present students of the College, the OSA organizes activities to encourage students to bring out the best in them. These activities include:
• Quiz contests and debate competitions
• Talks on emerging and trending topics
• Special Talks on economic and commercial topics like the GST and the Union Budget.
• Industrial Visits are arranged for the students to fill the gap between academia and the industry.
All these provide students with the practical touch that complements classroom learning.
The Alumni Association also contributes to student growth through financial means by providing scholarships for the economically backward and meritorious students. It provides scholarships of ten lakh rupees to the deserving students, annually. The OSA plays a vital role in the selection of the winners for the awards handed out during the Annual Day award ceremony. They have also instituted about seventeen awards and endowment funds for the benefit of the students. The OSA has also sponsored skill development courses, worth Rs. 1,30,000, for twenty-five deserving students, every year.
The Alumni members contact the Placement Cell of the college with recruitment opportunities either at their own businesses or with other networks. This helps to increase employment opportunities of students and facilitate optimum networking for the industry-academia collaboration.
