- About Finishing School: The self-sponsored certificate course is aimed at personality development. The motto of the course - “to be a better human” - is the central theme aimed at student’s quality improvement.
Started in 2013 under the supervisorship of the then Principal, Dr. Tawnenga Pachuau, the Finishing School is a wholly self- financed school aimed at Personality Development and Skill Training for the students. The motto- “Mind Without Fear”- has been adopted to symbolize that the courses offered are specifically tailored to meet the needs of graduating students, who will receive the information and training necessary to go forth in life fearlessly, whether they decide to opt for higher education, employment or other pursuits.
The School was established in 2013 and was the first of its kind in Mizoram. The School has been held once every year since its establishment for the Final Semester students as a way of rounding off their education, with the notable exception of 2018, where students from the 4th Semester were also permitted admission to the School. Except for 2020 and 2021, when the School was held online owing to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the School has always been held within the college premises, with a few classes being held in other locations.
The Courses generally offered fall under Personality Development and Skill Development, such as Communication and Interview Skills, Etiquette, Life Skills, History and Traditional Values of India and Mizoram, Cooking Skills, Legal Awareness, Reasoning and Aptitude Skills, Disaster Management, Financial Management, Fitness and Nutrition, Basic Self- Defense, First Aid, etc. Feedback Forms are given to the students at the end of every School Session, and based on these, the Courses as well as the Resource Persons are evaluated and selected for the following year.CRITERIA FOR RESOURCE PERSONS:
