Keeping active is an important part of student life…….
At AEC, sport plays an integral role within college life, developing independent minded individuals that display resilience under pressure. We provide our students the opportunity to achieve their potential whilst striving for an individual and collective level of excellence. Anand has widened the provision on offer whilst providing unprecedented levels of success for our sports teams and highest performing individuals.
In the modern scenario wherein there is cut throat competition of being successful, the life of a normal man & woman has no place for patience and time for refining the soul. When all the comforts and materialistic things fail to provide satisfaction and peace to life, sports and physical education comes into picture.
It’s an urgent need of the time to incorporate sports activities for the evolution of human, from just a student or technocrat to a complete man.
Sports Complex: Facilities & Infrastructure:
The college provides its students with a state of art facilities for all kinds of sports and games. A number of indoor and outdoor sports and games are facilitated, namely.
One of the architectural delights of the campus is its beautifully designed amphitheater. With a capacity of 500(+), this venue is used for entertainment, performances and different kinds of interactive programs like mentorship program, performances by dance club, music club, choreography, plays, skits etc. Students also use this platform for their cultural competitions etc.
Adequate number of buses are available for the day scholar students and staff members coming from the different parts of the city and its surroundings. All the buses are having predefined route and timings. Drivers are experienced and well trained in order to drive properly even in crowd. Almost all the buses are connected from each end of Agra and Mathura to college with appropriate stoppage.
The nearest Railway-Station & most convenient is “Raja ki Mandi” Agra; or if the train does not have a stoppage there, Agra Cantt is the next best option & students should reach Bhagwan Talkies for availing transport as described above. Those alighting at “Mathura Junction” can avail buses from the Mathura Bus Stand (ISBT).
We understand that most of our students are moving away from home for the first time, so we strive to make the transition as smooth as possible by offering comfortable and safe hostels within the campus.
