The informal attitude of the staff of the Department makes for an easy and interactive atmosphere conducive for learning and personality development. No learning can be complete only within the four walls of the classroom. The Zoology Department has a vibrant society aptly named “GENESIS”, which conducts a number of extra-curricular activities throughout the year with the aim of developing in the students a balanced all-round personality. “Genesis” offers the students a chance for self-expression and self-assertion and helps them imbibe good social and moral values. As the planning and execution of the various activities of the society are carried out by the students themselves, this inculcates in them a sense of responsibility and brings to the fore dormant leadership qualities which are so sorely needed in today’s competitive world to get that extra edge to stand out amongst the crowd.
The upgradation of the infrastructure is an ongoing process in the Department. Students are also exposed to hands-on research in addition to their usual curricular activities. The Department has its own computers with internet connections, a digital library with a collection of the latest editions of over 1400 books, a rich collection of research/ review papers from scientific journals, around 300 Nature/Science documentaries and films and a dedicated LCD projection facility for them.
