STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

Journey of 3 years, which I will always remember till my breathe

Remarks -

I do not want to share any bad remarks about the college where I studied for 5 years. I was an introvert girl in my school days. Step into Cotton College, when I met such intelligent students I was, of course, getting shamed.But gradually I manage myself work hard to get good results, makings good friends and those memories always bring a smile on my lips and I feel nostalgic.

Remarks -

There are some bad remarks about our college is that the seniors in hostel are sometimes getting very much offensive. The hostel guide doesn't take any stand for this. So it should be good if they change the Hostel guide. Else everything is great, come to
