Three-day residential orientation camp
Before the commencement of the teaching programme, every student has to attend the three-day residential camp in the college campus which happens to be extremely joyful. This three-day orientation programme is a unique event at PCGE. The aim of this programme is to remove fear and hesitation regarding the new college and the new life itself. Focus is on how to understand himself/herself, to shine the self-image, to do SWOC (Strength, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Challenges) analysis, to fix and concentrate on the concrete targets, to come out for a serious struggle for self-development and to evolve himself/herself into an analytical, thinking person etc. The impact of the PD camp is so immense that the students become comfortable, positive, pro-active and creative in their overall behavior.
