At the Assam Don Bosco University, we firmly believe in holistic development of our students. Education, for us, is only one aspect of overall student development. Sports and recreation are the two pillars that give shape to a complete being. That's why ADBU gives as much impetus to sports and recreation as to academics.
Sport not only nurtures healthy competition among students, but also teaches them the art of controlled aggression. It fosters teamspirit and imparts leadership skills. Playing a sport is also one of the most enjoyable ways to stay fit and keep the kilos at bay.
Recreation, on the other hand, is necessary for survival in today's fast-paced world. When students spend time on an activity outside the classroom, it helps them beat anxieties related to academic performance, seperation from loved ones, social and peer pressure, low confidence and poor self-image.
Among the sporting activities followed on campus at ADBU are cricket, football and volleyball in addition to indoor games like badminton and table tennis. We also have a sports club aimed at finding and harnessing talented sportspersons among our students. The university holds annual sports events and participates in various inter-college tournaments in a wide range of sports including track and field
So far as recreational facilities are concerned, a ready-to-use, well-equipped gymnasium is available for students to work out. We've also made provisions for music and spiritual healing in addition to forming literary, music & dance, dramatics and arts & crafts clubs for students to engage in activities they enjoy and feel passionate about.
