ST JOSEPH'S TRIVIA
The principal can smile a bit more. Other than it's good, try to understand that it can be difficult for students to adjust to new surroundings.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
It is expensive, to he honest. They do offer transparency on breakdown but at times it's not very valid. Like charging huge sum as lab fees when we are asked to bring our own laptop and work in class. Separate charges for reading room and library while it's technically the same.
I believe the placement cell has a huge scope for improvement. We students are asked to bring in companies for placement, rather than the college.
I was searching for colleges offering courses on Communications, Advertising and Public relations. This was my top priority, the availability of course. Next was the state. I wanted to study either in Bangalore, Kerala, Mumbai or Chennai. I came across St Joseph's in a website names College Dunia. I was called for a written exam. After the exam, the selected members were mailed and called for the interview.
Our college only has mens hostel, no ladies hostel. I stay in a Kerala paying guest house near my college and have to pay 10000 rupees, for three time meals and a 4 sharing room, which is quite expensive. However the rooms are good and meals are decent.
I personally don't know them. Being the first batch we don't have any senior batch. However we have seniors in the Mass communication dept, however haven't had much opportunity to interact with them, other than an unofficial freshers party.
Our classes, particularly because of the course- Advertising and Public relations are rather taken by industry professionals who have stood the test of time and gathered great experience in the field practically than theoretically. As far as the faculty is considered they are passionate and hardworking except very few.
Campus life is okay. There's a lot of groupism and students who don't smoke or drink have an extremely tough time fitting in. The Post graduation campus I very silent and no at all happening, while the under graduate campus is huge and lively, it is actually a happening campus
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
Since ours was a new course, and we are the first batch, hence it's a bit experimental, however the curriculum was planned and made by industry experts keeping in mind to groom us into professionals and give us out as market ready individuals. Our classes are mostly taken by industry professionals who have a much experience in the field.
Joseph's arrange huge freshers parties, however with the dress codes which are not followed by the organisers themselves. Occasions department fests, college fests, sports etc are all conducted. I personally haven't attended most of them, because it's the undergraduate student's events that dominate rather than the pg student's events.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
No, the college as such hasn't provided any scholarship opportunities to students, but I think some OBC scholarships are there, I don't know much about it.
