VISAKHAPATNAM: Raghu Educational Society and Anil Neerukonda Institute of Technology (ANITS) launched multiple The Hindu Education Plus Clubs (Eplus clubs) to begin the club activities at their respective campuses for this year.
A total of eight clubs were launched by Raghu Educational Society in the two institutions under its fold - Raghu Engineering College (six) and Raghu Institute of Technology (two). The clubs were launched across all its engineering streams and MCA and MBA disciplines. About 240 students joined the clubs.
At ANITS, four clubs were initiated by Principal of the college V.S.R.K. Prasad. The clubs were formed by students from B.Tech and MCA streams.
At Raghu a few of the members from the clubs initiated last year, came up to the podium to share their experiences and how they benefited by taking part in the Eplus club activities.
Brimming with confidence, Swamy, Spandana, Manikanta, Ganesh Varma, Priyanka and Ratna Teja divulged their gainful experience with the new members.
“We not only bettered our English speaking skills and public speaking ability, but we could also conquer the fear factor that was bogging us down. And now voluntarily we have replicated the model in our hostels for other students who have come from Telugu medium background,” said Ratna Teja.
Launching the clubs, the Chairman of Raghu Educational Society K. Raghu announced that the management has revised its academic schedule to incorporate an hour from 3.30 p.m. to 4.30 p.m. for Eplus club activities.
Principal of REC G.S.N. Murthy and the Principal of RIT K. Satyanarayana also spoke.
At ANITS, Prof. Prasad urged the students to give equal importance to soft skills and said, “Acquiring technical knowledge is important, but more important is to develop the ability to express that knowledge. And good expression comes from your hold over the English language.”
Director (Administration) of ANITS Govardhana Rao also spoke.
Post launch at both the colleges, Director of Conduira P.V. Rama Sasank gave a talk on group discussion skills.
Doling out tips on GD skills, the trainer said: “Maintaining eye contact, content, body language, fluency, taking initiative and tone and tenor are a few points that one should remember before undergoing a GD session.”
He also suggested the students to take up newspaper reading to improve their language and content and advised them to converse in English with friends for bettering their fluency.
