FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee for one academic year for B.A. Honors in History subject rounds up to Rs.2600. I find it very feasible and affordable, for the quality of education and the infrastructure and other facilities this college provides. When everyone in the college is helpful, supportive and approachable, paying this much amount of fees feels worth it because you know you are in a good environment academically.
I had taken admission for Bachelors of Arts in History and the procedure then was through online means. We had to fill an online application form and upload all the necessary documents online itself. On the basis of the documents uploaded and the eligibility criteria, there would be a merit list which will be released on any particular date given by the management. That is how you know that you have been selected.
The senior students help us in every way possible for them. The alumni network is very strong and also conducts Blood donation camps, health drives and seminars, awareness campaigns etc. so they can make the students participate in extra curricular activities. The Association of Alumni was created long back, around 2002-2003. Since then, it has received successful response and active participation from all the students.
The faculty is amazing and they will behave as friends with the students. They are approachable and extremely intelligent teachers. Two of the assistant professors have done their M.Phil. in History. All the teachers have a M.A. degree in History. Teachers tell us about their wonderful experiences and findings during their journey all this while. It is interesting to listen to an experienced person imparting their observations and views on the world. History department has one of the talented faculties in the college.
We have a huge library, which has also digitalised itself, so students can know which books are available at their mobile screens and easily accessible. We also have a Geography and English laboratory so that students can access information related to these subjects easily during working hours. There is also an auditorium in the campus for conducting workshops, seminars and guest lectures which has a capacity of holding up to 400-500 students. A group of students have also started college magazine where students passionate about writing and others as well take part in the formation of magazine actively. The magazine is in Bengali and English.
