My college Is best college. I really feeling proud by being a student of Jadavpur University. The one who studied or studying here never going to forget this college for there life time.
It is okay. But definitely there is huge scope of improvement. In many of the cases the management and the administration will only be better if the people working at the lower level be more efficient.
In Jadavpur university there is both engineering department and arts department. And because of the arts department there college's reputation is hurt sometime. Also stay away from smoking and all those kinds.
Good, but need lot of improvement specially in hostel facilities, library etc.I don't like campus politics,they are ruining the system.labs needs to be improved a little.
Yes the college is better than other college of the country it is cheapest and best college all over India u will learn great things in it the atmosphere is so good my college life is going to be the best and beautiful part of my life.
