      The hostel and college infrastructure are a little poor compared to other colleges but it is expected with the minimal fees given. There are a lot of festivals and programs and a healthy political atmosphere. The non violent conflicts between the two opposing parties lead to good development in the college.

      Positive is that we have 24hour open shops and hotels nearby so problem of being hungry, there is good stadium for those who interseted in sports especially athletics ( don't think that they support you ), we have reading rooms for those who want to study. As this medical college has huge amount of patients students can learn from them, And this institution is the asia's largest in terms of number of deliveries of new born, Bad is that large number of students when compared with faculties so students can easily get flop in their studies. No one to look students thus they get addicted to alcohols and smoking.
