Classes, timings, and all the experiences are overall good. Best faculty.
College life is overall excellent.
9:30 - 4:25 weekly four times lab. Labs are good. Teaching - 2.5/5. Not bad just okay.
Many events are celebrated in AKNU. To me college life does not feel as good as expected, having some pressure.
