Since a considerable number of our students are from rural areas and need to hone their English language skills for that coveted upward mobility and confidence, SSCW has set up a language lab to cater to their needs in this regard. This lab has 15 computers and is managed by well trained faculty. Excellent interactive software is used to give our students, that winning edge.
The cultural festival of our College, ‘Spoorthi', is a big hit in town, so much so that students of other colleges and the general public keep date with it and throng the auditorium. The reason for the phenomenal success of this programme is the variety of competitions which showcase the talents of our girls.
