SRM Institute of Science and Technology (formerly known as SRM University) celebrated NSS Day on September 24 and in a different way. More than 1000 students in addition to hundreds of teaching and non teaching staff participated in the event on campus. NSS was formally launched on 24th September, 1969, the birth centenary year of the Father of the Nation. Therefore, 24 September is celebrated every year as NSS Day.
There were various competitions conducted like drama, presentation, quiz and speech. The topics for these competitions were literacy and sports, discipline, environmental enrichment and conversation, drug abuse and health, elders and youngster relationship, Aids prevention, family welfare, women and child development, old age homes, youth development, food habits, standards of villages and many more. NSS is a commitment and not just an event. The student’s involvement is truly appreciable. Speakers from Vivekananda youth forum and service societies were invited to deliver motivational talk to the young and dynamic student community.
