College review

By Gautam Yadav (Class of 2019) , 3 months, 4 weeks ago
User Rating
3/5

The department is strict and the classes are regular and on time. Some professors are just mind blowing, I feel lucky to have them. They don't just come to teach but to interact with us. They encourage you to think out of the box and advise you to read many wonderful materials that’s not in syllabus. The syllabus of the English hons. hasn't been updated in the last few years and it requires some changes. Talking about infrastructure and facilities, the college lacks even basic facilities like clean toilets and running water coolers. There isn't even in-campus Wi-Fi and frequent power cuts are no surprise either. The condition of the toilets are miserable and the concerned people just don't give a damn about it.


Not the best but one of the most demanded college in India

If you are in dilemma whether to come or find something better then I will suggest you to come. Teachers are co-operative to needy. You will not feel any gap between teachers and students. Students are somewhat dull. The air here is full of tradition and culture.
