The event took place on 28 September 2016 at the college library with nearly thirty five students from various departments. The test consisted of multiple choice questions wherein students were supposed to tick the right answer and arrange all the answers in dictionary order.
To develop the understanding on usage of Dictionary, a powerpoint presentation was made to students in College Auditorium. The presenter, Ms. Sabitha, Department of Business Administration explained the presentation to all the first year students of the college on 3 October,2016. Ms. Charumathy, Department of English explained the powerpoint presentation to second year students on 4 October.

They were told to find out the location of the word along with the meaning in dictionary.
The primary purpose of this event was to help our students gain a deeper understanding of Dictionary such as about usage, finding the meaning, spelling or other details.
