Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore, might have excelled with its quality education and infrastructure. However, its strict dress and monotonous campus life is a hindrance to the students.

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Coimbatore, is known for many things. But the one thing that has been the talk of the town is its unmatched college infrastructure. Nestled amid nature, AVV has been successful in providing quality education. However, education and infrastructure are not the only parameters a student looks for while aiming to spend the best of their young, budding college life. 

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham's strict dress code mars the students' life considerably. Students must compulsorily wear their uniforms to class. Going further, the college also imposes an authoritarian rule of prohibiting casual outfits like jeans, sleeveless dresses and non-vegetarian foods anywhere inside the campus. With such stringent rules and regulations, one is compelled to reflect upon the quality of the students' life spent on campus.
