VALLABH GOVERNMENT COLLEGE MANDI: A CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE
My good remarks is only for the academic achievement, what the college has achieved. College need to improvise its accommodation facilities. Campus placement should be initiated. More scholarship programme should be announced.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Since it is a government college, fee structure is expected to be feasible but in some courses like biotechnology and BCA, the fee structure is high because of the unavailability of permanent faculty. For other courses the fee structure is feasible. At my time we used to pay offline. Transparency was there in the fee-breakdown. Late fee was applied to the students who do not pay at the given timeline.
NO, as for now I do not have seen this placement system from college side. No campus placement has been observed by me, but I did internship in three different area related to my course work.
Admission into the course I opted is based on Merit plus interview criteria. Firstly I fill the prospectus of my college and mentioned the course I wanted to get into, then after checking the academic background, I was shortlisted for the interview. Thenence an personal interview was conducted and I qualified it. This was the criteria to get admission into my college.
Yes, In the first year of my course I accommodated into the girl's hostel. It was a single hostel with the pathetic condition. In one room 5-6 girls were accommodated. Food charges were high. Rooms were not well maintained. No proper electricity connection was there in the rooms. Washrooms were not up to the mark. It was my horrible experience in that hostel. and I left the hostel in the second year, started living outside. There was only one girl hostel in the college and for boys, there was no hostel facility provided by the college. Outing rules were horrible.
Alumni network is not that much active in the college but it should be. Seniors are always helping and available.
Well, I studied Biotechnology in this college. Everything was appropriate in term of faculty except the faculty for biotechnology course because there was not a single permanent faculty for biotechnology. We were attended by temporary teachers recruited by college.
Campus life was awesome and in my course gender ratio was 1:1. The campus has its own sports facility like a boxing ring, basketball pitch and others too. Annual Student fests were happening comprised of a lot of competitions such as Science quiz, declamation, debates, folk dances and different kind of cultural activities. On annual day function, we receive prizes for best performance in academics, cultural programme and other volunteer activities. College also organises NSS camp a camp of national importance. NCC training is also being conducted in the college.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
So, I was enrolled into an annual course system, in which final exam was conducted in yearly fashion. In middle of the year mid-year exam was conducted. It was a three year graduation degree course and the structure of course and conducting exam was similar throughout the course.
So, we celebrate the annual day of college also we celebrate there student fest organised by student association some time college organised rojgar mela, and youth festival. NSS camps NCC training also being carried out by the college. Vallabh Jayanti, science day, environment day and other important days are also being celebrated.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
I was availing the scholarship from DST not from the college but there were some scholarship which was being provided by the college.
