The daily routine is hectic and strenuous but very enjoyable. Quality of teaching is good and varies from teacher to teacher but methods are awesome. Overall experience is nice.


The best part of our college is clubs and association. The seniors are very helpful and down to earth.Kashi yatre, technex and spardha are some of the main fests. College life is overall nice and interesting.
