Our main cultural festival is called the Milieu that takes place in the late spring every year. Then there are three freshers' induction events, each conducted by the departments, the Students' Union, and the college. Apart from that, there are some more events and celebrations held throughout the year, such as the University Foundation Day, Teachers' Day, Independence Day, etc.
The college life is overall very lively as well as enriching and motivating.
There is one hostel each for the male and female students of the University - the Eden Hindu Hostel for boys, and the Presidency University Girls' Hostel. The hostels are equipped with all the basic amenities necessary for accommodation. They also have their own libraries and a mess system.
Classes are held in accordance with the college working timings, which is from 10 am to 5 pm. There are usually 3-5 classes on an average every day for 5 days a week, and each class is 50 minutes long, leaving some free periods and recess time. There are internal assessments or mid-semester exams, and end-semester exams conducted for each paper in the course. Projects and assignments, whether a part of the mid-semesters or not, include writing well-researched academic papers, conducting seminars, conferences, and other departmental events such as fairs. The more innovative and creative the professor is, the more eventful and enjoyable the projects they assign become. Classroom teaching quality is par excellence, not just because of the content taught, but also the methods implemented in teaching. Learning is not just limited to classrooms anymore, both literally and figuratively.
