Jawaharlal university is not only good in terms of providing u the good education but fulfills the main objective of education "IT FREES THE MIND" as Jawaharlal Nehru said about the purpose of education.
I think everything is just fine about this college faculty to management to politics to students to the knowledge/debates hub it is. The only thing I would like to get better is metro or bus connectivity.
I think they need to bring a system to keep track of alumnus out of college. They should also have more focus on placements in spite of good talented students placement is not that good.
I have only good remark about the university there is amazing environment freedom inhance your personality.
Its a excellent place for studies and do good research. But jnu authority must think about the infrastructure development, particularly in the hostels. There is no internet facilities in the hostels.
