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.

The Alagappa Government Arts College since 1947 has been encouraging the importance of sports and games towards the total personality development of students.
