Review of Bethune College

Remarks -
8.7 /10

College infrastructure is very good. Faculty is excellent. Canteen need to be modified. No hostel facilities are available. It's a girls' college, which is famous for its amiability and amity. We promote anti-ragging ideas and make sure that no student is harassed by anyone in any way. Our Student Union is always there for the students, do are our professors. There is no reason to fear here, except the possibility of getting caught while bunking classes.

Bethune College

Remarks -
8.5 /10

Bethune college is the first woman college in India. Famous women of our country like kadambari Devi Chandramukhi Devi studied here and also there taught in this college. But only negative thing about this college is we need more teachers in our college and the the recruitment process should be enlarged and they should have to take care about the washrooms of our college.

Remarks -
8.5 /10

Our college has always helped us in academics as well cultural careers. They have been very strict in case of poor performance in classes and always organize a parent teacher meeting. They make sure students maintain a minimum attendence. Also our teachers are very helpful in reasearch and project works. The college has provided a clean and proper canteen where every staff can get food at minimal cost. Our college always embrace street animals and never posted a ban on them which encourages a care giving nature among all the people

It was good, overall. I had one bad impression-ragging. It created panic among us at the beginning of our college life. Though management was good enough and handled the situation efficiently. Overall, college life is a golden memory for me. All faculty and friends are assets to my life.
