Institutional Distinctiveness


FREE HOSTEL FACILITY:         

“Service to the needy is Service to the God”

S.G.S.Arts College was established with an aim of making the dream of Higher Education a reality among the students from conservative families’ especially lower middle class and economically under privileged rural families. Majority of the students getting admission in the college are from the families of below poverty line. Like nowhere else the Institution is empathetic to this aspect and providing free hostel facility to the students of these economically under privileged rural families in tune with the Institution’s dynamic concept -  “Education of Economically weaker students from Rural areas” as it has clearly recognized the India’s Rural sector plays a critical role in determining our economy. The Institution has contributed substantially to the educational and social development of these students over a decade and it will continue to do so in future catering to the needs of changing times.

DEVELOPING A SENSE OF RESPECT TOWARDS MORAL VALUES & VALUE BASED EDUCATION

“Intelligence plus Character – that is the goal of true Education” - Martin Luther King.Jr

 Value based Education is the foundation stone on which our edifice of curriculum is built. Basic human values refer to those values which are the core of being a human. The five human values which are expected in all human beings are 1. Right Conduct 2. Peaceful Co-existence 3. Peace 4. Discipline 5. Truth.

Human values are integral part of one’s personality. The Institute adopts the following practices to foster human values among students.

SADACHARAM:

“Sadacharam” classes intended to inculcate Human and Ethical values among the students, are being conducted in the Institute duly mixing with the Value Based Education with regular academic subjects. In this programme.

  1. MatrudevoBhava, PitruDevoBhava, AcharyaDevoBhava, AtithiDevoBhava.
  2. Paropakaram is idamsareeram.
  3. IshtapadiChadavandi.
  4. ManaKutumbam.

Are taught at one class per week on Friday’s and 50 Weeks in a year with such 50 Concepts by Eminent Scholars.

In order to ensure what they learn get practiced as well, the college has instituted several measures which include.

SRIVARI SEVA:

Promoting academic excellence is not our only aim, but the college provides a vibrant platform to develop varied interests and aptitudes to our students and shape them into successful, all rounded adults and good citizens of tomorrow. The Institution strongly believes that apart from enriched curriculum, co-curricular activities play a vital role in moulding the characters of the students particularly in imparting social skills, Intellectual skills, Moral values and Character appeal in them.

To accomplish this Institute involve the students in “SRIVARI SEVA SERVICE” at Tirumala, which gives an opportunity to the students to expose themselves and interact with pilgrims all over the globe with different traditions, Customs.

These augment the spirit of mutual work, Intellectual skills, Social responsibility, Spiritual Vitality and Personality and give an opportunity to imbibe the spirit of selflessness service.

DEVELOPING THE CULTURAL HERITAGE OF THE STUDENTS:

“A Nation’s Culture resides in the hearts and in the Soul of its people.”  – Mahatma Gandhi.

In order to promote a sense of belonging and pride about our National Culture, the activities that bring out the rich heritage of our country are organized. With a noble aim of Conserving cultural assets and passing them on to the future generations, festivals like Sankranti, Holy, Guru Purnima, Sri Krishna Ashtami, Gita Jayanti are being Celebrated in the campus great enthusiasm and involvement.

DEVELOPING A SENSE OF RESPECT TOWARDS NATION BUILDERS:

“Successful Leaders see the opportunities in every difficulty rather than difficulty in every opportunity”– Reed Markham.

The Institution initiates every possible opportunity to celebrate the National Festivals, birth and death anniversaries of eminent National Leaders who rendered yeomen services to the nation with an aim to inculcate patriotic intention and imparting the spirit of nationalism among the students.

SRIVARI PARAKAMANI SEVA:

Srivari Parakamani Seva is the practice where accounting of the offering contributed by the devotees to the Lord Sri Venkateswara Swamy through Srivari Hundi at Tirumala. The devotees offer their contribution in the form of currency, coins, Gold, ornaments and in the form other articles. During the Parakamanisevathe offering were segregated and counted article wise.

The Institution involves its students in Parakamani seva where the students get an opportunity to know currency of different countries and it enables the students to identify their values.Thus the Distinctiveness of the Institute is reflected in our commitment in inculcating values among the students.
