Akansha Bachelor of Arts [BA] (Economics), batch of 2018
ACADEMICS & FACULTY
The college timings are good. It is from 8 A.M to 1 P.M. It gives us adequate time to go home and study or engage in other activities. The variety and quality of projects and assignments given are excellent.
Examinations not only deal with just mugging up but critically thinking and evaluating the discussions. Ample number of presentations and documentaries are shown and workshops are conducted. All round development is empgasized.
Students having high academic as well as extra curricular capabilities get admission here.
Faculty for Literature, Sociology, Anthropology are really good. Audio visual is used when required. Abundance of books in the libraries for reference is available. Also, the canteen has a variety of categories for food. The overall experience is amazing. It's the best environment any one can ever get in a campus.
The campus has its own counselling centre, chapel, labs and many more. The architectural beauty is amazing. It's worth an experience! However, the crowd comprises mostly of people from elite backgrounds. They expect you to cope up with them. Also, the students over here are obsessed with Malhar. Malhar is a fest where people just go to play games and chill out with friends. If you ever get into St Xavier's College, don't go for Malhar! It is the worst experience ever. It is hyped too much. However, the college facilities are amazing! The negative point lies with the crowd and not the college! Please do get into Xavier's. It's once in a life time experience!
For girls options of nearby hostels and Pg is easily available.
You can get a quite handsome variety of food items in the canteen with reasonable and student friendly rates. Also Xavier's canteen is listed at the top most level as compare to other colleges in Mumbai.
Library and internet facility is also provided to the students for academic purpose. As I mentioned earlier, labs are well equipped with the instruments and other essentials required. Infrastructure of the college is very good as its one of the very old institute in Mumbai.

Being a Xaverite it gives me privilege to review my college out of great respect for the institute. The embience and the environment of the college itself gives me inspiration to do something in life. It was luck by chance and also because of my grades that I got into this college for the post graduation course in microbiology, and to my expectation it was a level higher which encouraged me to do well in academics.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY
Academics in Xaviers is somewhat heavy but quiet manageable. There is exposure for application of knowledge in practical through different projects. We have semester system each semester being 6 month long. So there are 6 semesters in total in 3 years. Marking system is GPA system. Professors are really excellent in delivering their knowledge and are ready to help students outside the college too. One needs to be really particular about the attendance though.
