My daily routine is really busy. As you have to attend class early in the morning at about 8:30 am. And up to 1:30 pm you have to attend your regular classes if any teacher is absent then you have you miss your classes. If I talk about the quality of my college is average as the professors are well and highly educated with very high grades and they belong to very good academics. Their teaching method is really very professional. My overall experience is about average as there is a lot of holidays because of strict.


There are different and Soo many societies are available on my campus. Students have to give auditions and then they select. There are many festivals like the last was on sports, NCC, fest, internship program, Diwali Mela, Holi celebration and so on. My college life with friends is complete. The main role play is played by my friends.
