Alumni Association of Sacred Heart College (AASH)

      Alumni Association of Sacred Heart College (AASH) functions as a nodal agency for maintaining liaison with the alumni and to involve them in the development and growth of the institution, which operates through its full-fledged web portal AASH. In addition to this umbrella body, the college has alumni associations for individual departments and chapters in North America, Middle East, New Delhi, Bangalore and Chennai, which meet at least once every year. These annual meetings renew their bond to their ‘alma mater’ and also provide an opportunity to draw feedback on the programs offered by the college, their effectiveness and the expectations of the industry, as well as sensing the trajectory of advanced research. The association assists the college in instituting scholarships, organising lectures as well as giving lectures, as well as providing financial and logistic support to the various programs organised by the college. The alumni join the college in its annual cultural festival “Heartifest” by taking part in the cultural show and raising funds for the event. They regularly give feedback on the activities of the college and have always lent a helping hand in its march towards excellence.
