    Clearity about NITR

    Remarks -

    A big campus with a power packed sea of opportunities. Students can get a best college life here and can pursue any dream he/she want. Just a single problem is that Rourkela is not that a big city. Placements are good and are comparable with middle level IITs. You can easily achieve marks while having a life here.

    NITR - Great Campus

    Remarks -

    I have already mentioned lots of positives. The negatives: Mess food (although the students from other colleges say we have much better) need to improve. At times, there's issue related to insects. It is far away from a major airport, so kind of becomes difficult to reach for out station students.

    Remarks -

    The college has mostly lived up to the expectations that I have had. The fact that this is a college that lived up to its claim of being free of ragging, is commendable. I often get to hear that despite all claims, most other colleges haven't been able to tackle this menace. Besides, the college has a mentorship system as well, where each fresher is assigned a mentor, who is a senior student, generally from the same branch. Negatives of the college could include its location, which is quite far from the heart of the city, and the fact that the city has no airport of its own, which affects the number and kind of visiting companies to an extent.
