Crazy hostel moments

With the first floor having the television stationed in the common room, students are often seen with their evening snacks, munching and surfing channels or enjoying movies. The 3rd floor of the hostel block has the foosball and TT tables. You literally have to wait for your before you can settle your score with your opponent over a match.
During assignments and last-minute deadlines, the night canteen becomes the go-to place for the procrastinators and the nocturnal humans on campus. The place opens at 9 pm in the night and operates till 1 am - serves hot beverages, juices, fruits, egg omelet, and crispy puffs to answer the midnight cravings. The menu gets re-zigged and even cooler stuff makes it to the kitchen of the night canteen on some nights.
With Guntur and Vijayawada within an hour’s drive, SRM-ians plan their weekends to make it to the city for relaxed weekends. The Amaravati Museum, the Bhavani Island, and the Undavalli caves are among the favorite tourist spots for students coming from various parts of India and the globe. Gandikota Fort, Grand Canyon, and the bird sanctuary are places you just shouldn’t miss while being in Guntur.
