Role and Responsibility of Students at CGC Jhanjeri
Chandigarh Group of Colleges, Jhanjeri – the most renowned college in the whole of North India has provided all the facilities that are needed to provide a premier educational experience to students. With that being said, there are some codes of conduct and responsibilities that are expected from students as well, as they spend their time here. The first important thing is, students should use the facilities at the college with care and considering that they are their own and they will be used by other students as well. They should not indulge in careless activities which may spoil the environment of the college and cause wastage and damage to college resources. Other than excessive expenditure, such activities result in other students being devoid of the facilities.
Plus, students should be punctual and regular in attending classes to get the most of what is being taught to students. In case you miss any class, it will not only result in important material being lost but students will find it difficult to understand what is being taught further. This is a matter of your whole life and if you act leniently here, you will find it difficult to establish yourself strongly in the professional world. This is, straight forward, a complete wastage of time and money. It has been seen in many cases that most of the blame is being put on the college, even though it is the student who has not acted properly and delivered what is being expected of him or her.
