Sports teaches you character, it teaches you to play by the rules, it teaches you to know what it feels like to win and lose-it teaches you about life.
Sports are always considered as the best source for getting mental and physical health and to be fresh and healthy in the life and when are talking about the students we should not forget that sports is one of the most significant constituent of an student’s life.The sports teach the students how to behave properly and at the same time the sportsmanship is also being promoted. The student enables himself to strive for hard work and to have the hunger of the win and at the same time will able to cope up with the defeat and how to drive positives out of the loss and giving him or her the proper attitude of dealing with the winning and losing situations, which plays the vital role in the personality development and grooming of the student.
Keeping the same in mind, DME has a sports society which focuses on different sports like cricket, football, basketball and other. We conduct intra college competitions every semester to encourage our students to participate and showcase their talents in sports along with academics. Our long term goal is to take this to inter college level.
