The daily routine of the classes varies from stream to stream and credit score of that semester, but on an average, 6 hours of daily classes are there and the teaching quality is really good and the overall experience of the college is amazing. 


Name the skill set or any other co-curricular activity, and we have it. The societies and clubs are amazing. Their events are really amazing. They really take the college life to another level and provide us with so much of exposure and help us develop so many skill sets that not only help us in college but also build up our resume.

Last week I had started my college and the classes are on time. Best faculty with the best knowledge regarding their course. My daily routine is good and it's the best college all over the world.


There are lots of clubs in the college like Skill studio, Privahan and much more. Society fair is held in college and it includes karaoke, food fest. Life in college is a combination of both ups and downs. When we are with our friends we feel college life is best and some people teach us important lesson of life.
