10 /10

Both the programs offered here are unlike any other programs in the country.  Apart from lectures, discussions and studio sessions, the college hosts workshops every other week like film making, woodworking, illustration, etc that allow us to build on our skill sets simultaneously. The college also invites professionals from the field to give talks every week that allows us to meet and engage with people who are practitioners in the field. As far as the subjects are concerned, they are very different from traditional subjects offered in other architecture colleges. There is a large emphasis on making so all of our assignments and projects are more practical than theoretical. Our assignments are really interesting and range from sketches and essays to short films and building walls with our own hands. In fact, in the first year itself, we get to work on live projects that help us understand how different it is learning from the actual site instead of a textbook. We go on regular field trips every other week and even go on study programs as a batch to different places like Mumbai and Himachal Pradesh to allow us to extend our understanding of our subjects beyond the classroom. The exposure here is great.
Even our subjects arent limited to architecture alone. We have classes on sociology, anthropology, graphic design, etc and have the option to pick a minor field of study that could range from construction management and interior design to law, business or even psychology.
The entire syllabus is inter-disciplinary and we are allowed to structure the course as per our academic interests. The faculty might just be the best part. Since we have small class sizes, each student gets a lot of individual attention and everyone gets to engage in discussions. They are always approachable and help us in whatever we need, be it doubts from lectures or even things that spark our interest outside of it. We spend a lot of time with our faculty even outside the classroom, during casual lunches or conversations we pick up in the studios after class hours. Being surrounded by really qualified people all the time enhances our learning experience.

Campus life is quite eventful. Being a fully residential campus there are activities going on at all times and sometimes even through the night. There are multiple clubs and societies that any student can be a part of. These range from debate and environment society to dance society and Rotaract. There is always something happening on campus that students can get involved in whether it is a talk, workshop, open mic, or a committee for an upcoming feast. We have two large-scale annual fests- one cultural and one sports, students can be a part of any of the committees for the planning and execution of these fests. Apart from these large-scale fests, there are smaller fests held by the different schools or societies that happen from time to time. Festivals like Diwali, Holi, Halloween, etc are also celebrated with great enthusiasm and act as great opportunities for us to interact with students outside of our course. Apart from cultural activities, students can also take part in sports tournaments or even use the swimming pool and badminton courts for leisure.
