    The college has good academic status. Thus does not provide much support for cocarricular activities. college has good area of expansion but location is so remote, thus has less connectivity. The college bus is the main mode of transport of the students.

    The location of the campus is very far from city, well it though saves us from the hustle bustle of city but sometimes we feel as if we do not have as social life there because we really lacks in eating joints plus gaming facilities and hangout sessions are really less.

    Overall college life here is good and teclaches us the good and bad aspects of life, They not only teaches us the subjects but also teaches the harsh reality of life. Negative point is that the college has too much of rules and regulations.

    As of now, there has not been many placements or job opportunities created by the college. But they have promised to bring authorities to provide us with placement opportunities in the future. Last year, just 2 students got placed from our college and this year, the Training and Placement Cell said that they would bring as many as agencies as possible to the equation.

    Campus placement is almost nil. But again in architecture this is not how usual placement happens. Few NITs and IITs have campus placements because T&P cell has already been established. But this is not much of an issue as SPA alumni are easily accepted into architecture firms upon application, in most cases, preferred.
