are as important as the studies. All the co
lleges and universities enco
urage extra curricular
recreations in their campuses. The purpose behind promoting these recreations in campus is to enhance development and personal growth of pupils. The academic mission of a co
llege cannot be met by just providing good lecturers but also by enco
uraging the pupils to participate in a variety of extra curricular
tasks that co
ntribute to their all round development.
In many co
lleges there are separate departments for these recreations. Recreations include involvement of pupils in singing, dancing, dramatics, mimicry, sports, writing for the co
llege magazine and web co
ntent for website, participating in cleanliness campaigns of the co
llege, social service works, drawing, painting, picnics, debates, group discussions, celebrating important events, writing co
mpetitions, flower arrangements, science projects, art and craft co
mpetitions or exhibitions, quizzes etc.
