The college management is great in terms of administration but if there is one thing that can be changed perhaps it would be the lift of clothing rules since a lot of students struggle to keep up with it.
The English department of my college is one of the best in the city with them offering not just several aspects of English Language and Literature to the students for study but also the faculty is extremely experienced and able. Besides, they have several seminars which allow the students to enhance their presentation skills.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee structure is comparatively feasible for the Arts and Commerce departments but for courses like Mass Communication and Multimedia and Animation the fees are too much for students coming form middle class families. And some of the Science departments too like Biotechnology and Microbiology follow lead.
The placements and the job opportunities are great since we have a placement cell devoted to the purpose. We see multiple companies, big and small alike from various sectors looking for employees. We apply, and then a list is released by the company of who should be present for the GD or the interview.
We need to upload the marks obtained in our 12th board examinations while filling up the admission form. Subsequently, they release merit lists. There are multiple merit lists depending on the boards that the students come from and also depends largely on the average index number.
Even though I haven't lived in the hostel, from the friends that I've had, the hostel facilities were pretty good with comfortable living space and food. There was however a time deadline by which all students were expected to be back in their hostels.
The Alumni network is super active and helpful. They too organise multiple events in the college and also lend a helping hand to students in need of help.
The faculty of my department are not just able and extremely experienced but they are also excellent guides. Not just do they make sure we are comfortable in the classrooms but they also ensure that we are able to grasp whatever is taught in the classrooms.
The campus life is pretty diverse and balanced in terms of gender ratio. There are plenty of extracurricular activities, competitions, debates and so on. Infact, we have a club/society dedicated to each art like we have the Sports Department, Debating Society, The English Academy, The Xaverian Academy of Dance and Music, The Fine Arts Society and so on.
We have the semester system with us being assessed at the end of every semester. Apart from the usual course that we undertake we are also assessed at the end of every semester on a compulsory course that we need to study like EVS, Hindi, Compulsory English.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
I feel the course curriculum is fairly balanced since we not just get to study and analyse the different aspects of English Language and Literature over the six semesters but we also have to complete our dissertation in our last semester. The dissertation prepares us for writing papers further in our academic research.
Yes, we do have a placement cell where we need to enroll in the beginning of each year. There are multiple companies from various sectors which offer internships and jobs alike.
We celebrate multiple events in our college. Every department has an event of their own and then there are few common events that are managed by the Students union. Some of the events managed by the students are Xavotsav, Xavier's Premier League and so on.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
There are some very good scholarships offered by the college, if the student is talented or aces his/her academics, irrespective of their economic background.
