Personality is the reflection of individuality, and can be defined as the total quality of an individual’s behavior as revealed in his thought and expression, attitudes and interests and the manner of acting. To those who may of wonder what has sports (or) physical activities got to do with education in general, one is tempted to borrow Gandhi’s maxim to counter that thought namely “Physical training should have as much a place in the curriculum as mental training”. Gandhi’s comment on physical education has become an integral part of any enlightened academic programme. This is true in view of promoting sports not only through participation to develop and nurture talent but to meet the immediate objective of changing and developing society.
S.I.V.E.T. College since 1966 has been encouraging the importance of sports and games towards the total personality development of students. Prof.S.Janardhanam joined as the first Director of Physical Education. He was an outstanding sportsman and academician who rendered his services to the development of sports and games in the college. After his retirement in 1993, Prof.R. Saravanan was in charge of Sports and Games. Since 2000, the Department heads towards excellence under the stewardship of Dr.M.Pari. The Physical education department has a good infrastructure and conducts tournaments and matches equal to IPL matches. The 20 twenty matches have created an impinging effect on the reputation of the college. The teams from different elite colleges do participate in these matches.
