Despite being a nation with full of competent youngsters, India's record in the Olympics has not been spectacular. The lack of institutions that can identify and develop the sporting talents is one of the major reasons behind the country's poor performance on global athletic championships. Interestingly, Shri Shankarlal Sundarbai Shasun Jain College for Women located in Chennai is striving hard to change India's fortune in the 2020 Olympics. With a motive of bagging medals in the upcoming Olympics, which is proposed to happen in Tokyo, Japan, the institute has launched 'The Mission Archery - 2020' where they train their students to compete against the international sporting stars. Indeed, the results are already there with the girls of Shasun Jain College bagging 10th Tamil Nadu State Archery Championship as well as Pondicherry Chief Minister's Trophy.

When it comes to the delivery of latest knowledge, Shasun Jain College never goes for any compromises.

Taking up such missions of national eminence, Shasun Jain College - a front-runner in women's education - has always proved to be a forward-looking institution. "Our focus is to ensure that the traditional system of education is modernized with the value-based approach. The courses offered here are aligned accordingly so that our students can stand out from the crowd once they go out from the college," says Dr. B. Poorna, Principal, Shasun Jain College. Established in 2004, Shasun Jain College is supported by Sri Swetambar Stanakwasi Jain Educational Society that has been rendering yeomen service to the community by nurturing learning experience and enabling students to realize their inherent potential. In the eight decades of presence since its inception in 1934, the society has established several premier educational institutions and moulded the young generation into competent, self-reliant and socially responsible citizens.
