Sports, studies, research, fun and quest activities are also running under the banner of Karnatak College gymkhana. The college not only imports education in basic sciences but also in applied sciences like BCA & B. Sc. (CS) it is also great pride to know that the college is running PG courses in Chemistry, Physics & Mathematics, Ph. D, M. Phil programmes in Physics, Chemistry, Criminology & Forensic science, Zoology, Botany, Geography, Geology and other departments are being undertaken. For an all round development of personality the role of sports and extra curricular activities is indispensable. The talents are in born instincts, often known as god’s gifts, which can grow profoundly if nurtured properly.

In this direction the KCD provides platform to encourage the talents hidden amongst the youth by organising International conferences, seminars, National level workshops, extension programmes & UGC sponsored workshops and various extra curricular activities.

I take this opportunity to extend my congratulations to all those who have taken responsibility directly and indirectly in brining my Karnatak College as Vidya Kashi
