Red_Arrow_Left1Infrastructural improvements.
Curricular Activities:
Ram Krishna College, Madhubani, has been  particularly attentive to the falling number of students attendance in class room. As such, several measures like- phone call, public announcement , distribution of pamphlet- notice, guardians meeting in campus, imposition of fine for non attendance of classes – were taken to enhance the turnout of students in classes and, these measures did produce encouraging results. In spite of paucity in contingency, practical classes were made to run smoothly. Classes were hardly allowed to be hampered by the eight university examinations that took place in the year 2007. Evaluation of classes XII answer books too were scheduled in a way that classes hardly faced any disturbance. Apart from the regular functions of the college, work at IGNOU centre continued in full swing and  the number of learners went up to 595 in different graduation/post graduation programmes. The self financing department of Biotechnology also registered phenomenal progress. Atop all the routine academic activities the department of physics hosted a National Seminar on ‘Emerging Trends in physics’. In course of all these activities the needs of weak students were addressed with special care.
Add-on-Courses:  
Remedial courses for students from weaker section was carried out during extra hours. Besides Coaching for Entry in Services was started for students intending to take preliminary / final examination for different Services-particularly the government jobs. Co-curricular endeavors obviously enhanced the caliber of all the students including those from weaker sections.
Co-Curricular :
The foundation for Academic Excellence and Access focused on improving the language proficiency and comprehension of students in language-especially English and brought computer literacy to them which, in turn, has aroused cyber-consciousness amongst the students. The two units of N.C.C. has trained students for parades at different National days. In 2007 fifty students passed the BEE exams of the N.C.C. and twenty students were successful at CEE exams. Likewise the two units of N.S.S worked together to organize at least seven socially/academically useful events like seminars on ‘Female education’, ‘Folk traditions’. National Integration etc. Frequency of such group activities undoubtedly encouraged the students to develop ever grater interest in sports, games and cultural activities.
Infrastructural Improvements :
During 2007 need was felt for the maintenance of various equipments placed in laboratories as well as the electronic gadgets like computers, printers, reproducers. As such, Instruments Maintenance facility was introduced at the college campus. Counseling and placement cell was brought to work in the campus.

Red_Arrow_Left1Curricular activities Red_Arrow_Left1Add-on-courses
Red_Arrow_Left1 Co-curricular activities Red_Arrow_Left1 Extra Curricular activities
Red_Arrow_Left1Infrastructural improvements.
Curricular Activities:
Efforts made during the previous year,i.e.2007, for ensuring the class-attendance of students obviously left some impact, as the student turnout, in 2008, went up to considerable level. This, however, engendered the crisis in management of classes as the number of  faculty members has come to less than skeleton. Department of Hindi has no teacher at all. The departments of Mathematics,  Geography and History has only one teacher each. So is the case of physics which has only two teachers. It was indeed difficult for the college to cope with the enhanced number of students with such a small number of teachers. Still then, the faculty members left no stone unturned to address the students in and outside their classes. Eight university examinations besides the practical examinations were conducted and evaluation of BSEB-Class XII answer books too was held in the college. The IGNOU centre at the college registered a minor dip and the number of learners came to 493 in 2008. The department of Biotechnology was rather constant during this year.
Add-on-Courses:  
Remedial courses continued as ever and coaching tor Entry in Services registered a larger turnout than 2007.
Co-Curricular Activities:

Personnel working for the Instrument Maintenance cell were pressed into service for instructing the students for the foundation course in computer hardware as well. However, this year, i.e. 2008, experienced a definite loss of interest in the FAEA project by the Ford Foundation which had hitherto financed  the programme. The two units of N.C.C. registered a phenomenal improvement with at least 137 students succeeding in BEE examination and 13 students in CEE examination. One of the cadets was sent to Bhutan under the International youth Exchange Programme. The two units of N.S.S held two regular camps in rural areas. Besides the regular programme of debate, Seminars and Quitz, the N.S.S. units organized gorgeous events on ‘youth day’ and Womens’ day.
