ST JOSEPH COLLEGE OF COMMERCE

National Service Scheme

The NSS under the Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports is a social service organization that enables students to reach out to the public, spread civic awareness and encourage social responsibility. In line with Gandhian idea that students should do “something positive so that the life of the villagers might be raised to a higher material and moral level”, students of the college are sent every year to a village, in order to contribute to its development, and gain a different perspective of service. Numerous programmes are organized such as blood donation camps, streetplays and seminars.The motto of the NSS, ‘Not me, but you’, reflects the essence of democratic living, and upholds the need for self-less service.

Counter Terrorism Mock Drill - Briefing and simulation

On the 10th of August, 2018 few members of college's NSS wing had the opportunity and privilege to attend an awareness event on COUNTER TERRORISM organised at St. Joseph's Indian Composite PU College. Elite commandos who are specialised in the field of counter terrorism shared their years of experience and expertise with students. Lt. Col. Muthanna addressed the students on certain significant aspects of terrorist attacks and how Counter Terrorism Mock Drills help in eliminating the void between Local Police and Counter Terror Forces. Students were enlightened with various defensive techniques and methods which, though simple, would benefit largely in times of emergency. A mock drill was also organised by the elite commandos wherein they simulated an environment similar to that of a bomb blast. A low-intensity bomb was exploded in the premises of the college. We understood the mindset of a typical terrorist and the kind of places he/she chooses to attack. All in all, it was a highly informative event and students gained immense learning on counter terrorism.
