Sagar Mahavidyalaya ensures a completely ragging free environment in the college campus and hostel premises. Our College believes in an easeful space, where our new students unhesitatingly participate in various activities including teaching-learning with the existing students. The college assures that any activity – be it verbal or written, physical or psychological – by any student/a group of students causing damage to the other student(s) is strictly prohibited. Sagar Mahavidyalaya Anti-Ragging Cell monitors such cases minutely and informs the authority for appropriate action. The Cell, moreover, looks after that there will be no such incident of ragging in the campus.
