Seminars: The Department of Journalism at the Government First Grade College for Women and Varadigarara Koota, a forum of media reporters in Hassan, have come to an understanding to conduct seminars and discussions on media regularly for the benefit of students.

The first programme was held on August 31. Senior journalist Ishwar Daithota spoke on new trends in media and interacted with the students. Mr. Daithota said such programmes would help the students understand the field better.

Roopraj Chandan, Principal of the college, said that the college was eager to conduct such programmes every month in association with the Varadigarara Koota. “Ours is the only college to have a journalism department in the district. In the recent years, more students are attracted to this subject.”
