Our institute has its own culture and way of life. What better way to judge the same, than to have a sneak peak at one of the participants' 24 hour routine (if you can call it that, considering the extreme variations). The institute offers tremendous ways to get involved in campus life.

A word of caution before you read on: the description below cannot be generalized to every candidate because as is very well said – “We all paint the canvas in our very own ways? With that in mind, here you go...”
Sports/Games
Even with rigorous academic schedule, SIMCA students find time to play and stay fit. To sustain in this competitive world and to handle the burden of tasks, students should be physically fit and strong enough. Students have number of opportunities to compete and stay in shape through a huge array to choose from: Cricket, Basketball, Football, Badminton, Table Tennis, and Volleyball. Some indoor and brain chasing games are also there like Chess and even Carom. These are in addition to of course the gamut of computer games (Counter Strike and AOE being the most popular).
Gym/Jog
The institute has provided us a state-of-the-art gym. The facilities are open to all students. In all, you have the best opportunity to sweat yourself out. And, as a friend of ours once said, you can experience “The Jogger’s high?” Health is Wealth that is why our students are provided with Gym and other equipments.

College Teaching

Highly uncertain future can be guessed as it will reward people who are intellectually resilient. So, people who can express their views clearly, can think in the critical way; people who can solve problems and recognize opportunities very skillfully; people who have learned to clinch life innovatively and solicitously, in any of the circumstances they are in.

Budding and fostering such capabilities is the key factor of what we conduct inside SIMCA classrooms and laboratories. College Teaching takes the form of a combination of lecturing, class discussion and practical sessions. The atmosphere is fairly informal, where students encouraged to ask questions and discuss issues.

Right from the first semester of students in the institute, we try to impart confidence into them. We give them encouragement and support to learn and understand the courses.

Studies
Our teachers play the roles of mentors and tutors, but at last students need to study the courses to match up with the ongoing curricular subject. You won’t survive the next day’s classes without a little bit of pre-reading. And in case there are any submissions, the earlier you start the better. But then again, many still end up running around the next morning taking printouts. You can’t blame them. There’s so much to do.
