Smart boards and projectors are recently installed in all classes, but almost all professors restrain themselves from using it for reasons unknown to me. The library is a little out of sorts; sometimes important books are not available. There is an adequate number of hostels and construction of new girls' hostel is recently finished and that of boys' hostel going on scheduled to be finished within one year. Apart from hostel foods, there are some canteens and restaurants within college premises who provide reasonably good food at affordable price.

The routine is not so strict as compared to other private colleges. Class timing is effectively from 8:15 am to 5:30 pm. But during off periods or lunch breaks, you can come back to the hostel or go to the library or outside of campus. In every department, there are some teacher(s) who are student friendly and some who are not. But if you can pass the early storm up to the 4th semester, you can enjoy the college life.


FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP

The fee fluctuates every year because the college is funded by World Bank. Regarding this consult college website. The SC and ST students, however, have the opportunity of tuition fee waiver.
