Snigdha's review on Loyola College, Chennai | Written on: 04 Feb 2015
ACADEMICS & FACULTY
- The faculty is impressive; at least they have made an impression on the students.
- The faculty is not too friendly, nor too strict. They get along well with the students.
- The students are even taken for an industrial visit during their course, although it is just a day visit.
PLACEMENTS & ALUMNI NETWORK
- Only IT companies visit the campus.
- Most of the core branch students have to find their placements off campus.
- No help is provided by the college.
INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION
- The road to Loyola Institute of Technology is not constructed; it is in a very bad condition.
- The college has huge grounds and the college building and interiors are not appealing.
- Overall it looks like just another college on NH4.
- Labs have much non-functional equipment which is neither replaced nor repaired.
HOSTELS & FOOD
- Hostels are decent, just a notch above the mark which would classify it as bad.
- The tiny rooms are shared by 3 people. Toilets, which at times are a major factor while deciding on the hostels, are bad.
- Many of the doors don’t have knobs so you better be prepared to sing while you attend the nature's call.
- One-third of the students are from outside the city and consequently hostel dwellers.
- These students are from the South Indians states only. The rest are from the suburbs of Chennai.
- Loyola does have a few North Indian students too, who initially find it difficult to adjust here but later they mingle well with the locals.
- If you are from a liberal school of thought then you might find it difficult to adjust to the environment here.
