Lately, it has ventured on its own and the departments are doing very well under the guidance of excellent teachers. The College has recently been associated with Meghalaya Aids Control Society (MACS) and has actively taken part in all the programs such as National Voluntary Blood Donation Day, International Youth Day, World AIDS Day, Street Plays, etc. The students have also taken part in arranging programs connected with Disaster Management.
