The extra-curricular events and activities like talent hunts, debates, drama activities, musical events, arts and crafts competitions, festivals, entrepreneurial activities, farewell and welcome events, etc. have enhanced students’ confidence levels to a great extent.

The team DSW keeps a continuous liaison with Director Sports, Head CDC, Radio Manav Rachna and the Public Relations department of Manav Rachna for promotion of student activities. Most of the events across different faculties and institutions develop a sense of overall belonging to MRIU and overall Manav Rachna parivar.
