National Sports Organisation (NSO) is a compulsory society of Jesus and Mary College. All of NSO’s activities are organised under the aegis of the Department of Physical Education. It is one of the largest student’ssocieties, consisting of more than 600 students. Out of these, about 300 students have got admission through the sports quota, and the rest are non-sports students. The students outside of the sports quota, who have opted for NSO, are required to complete 30 hours of activity per semester.

"Sports may not be a profession for everyone but it may be a passion for many." Keeping this thought in mind, the “FIT INDIA” initiative has been incorporated into the organization’s ethos. NSO has been providing sports facilities to students who may have lacked sporting avenues in the past, but would like to start learning and playing seriously now. If any non-sports student displays quality performance in any sport, the department makes sure that they get ample opportunities to demonstrate their talent at the inter college and university level.

The NSO also organizes a plethora of activities allied to fitness and physical well-being. Some such significant events organised by NSO are:

  • Zumba/Aerobics Workshops
  • Meditation (Music Healing) Sessions
  • Talks on Diet, Nutrition, HandlingInjuries etc..
  • Intra-organisational Quiz and Essay Writing
  • Annual Sports Week and Sports Day
