There has always been a cultural troupe at the college under the aegis of the Students' Union Social and Cultural Department. They would perform at college functions, and at cultural festivals within and outside the state. In 2016, with cultural clubs of various local colleges adopting a name and identity of their own outside of the S.U., the Huiva Cultural Club was born on the 13th September 2016. A membership drive was carried out from the start of the semester in July 2016, and office-bearers were elected two months later.

The club members practise on Mondays and Thursdays after classes, and also engage in fundraising, having no sponsorship from any sources. They continue to perform at college events and participate at competitions organised by the Mizo Zirlai Pawl (MZP) and the Mizo Students' Union (MSU) primarily because these are meant for college level clubs. The club continues to work closely with S.U. leaders from the Social & Cultural dept.
In March 2021, the club participated in the Virtual Cultural Dance & Singing Competition organised by the Mizoram Dept. of Social Welfare & Tribal Affairs. Twenty five students took part in the Pipu Zai and Chheihlam categories where they were asked to submit videos of their performances. Due to the reimposition of an extended lockdown all over the state, results were announced only on the 8th September 2021. The club beat out competition from various college clubs to place second in the Chheihlam category, receiving a citation and prize money of Rs. 30,000.
