’Mentoring’ means to become a guiding torch for a group of students. Our college has been organizing mentor meetings since 2003. The purpose of organizing such meetings is to give an opportunity to the students to discuss the significant matters with their mentors. Frequent meetings are organized every year to accomplish the goal of nurturing the students’ minds. A mentor is a friend, philosopher and guide to the students. Building up a rapport with the students is the first step for mentoring.
