    Best location for studies with different culuture. Its been a great experience for me the University is located in the srinagar city besides dal lake which remarks a beautiful destination to live. Well qualified scientists are there. This university ia also among top agriculture universities of india. We can get enough of time for self studies and but the only bad thing about this university is that there is lack of variety of students.

    Our college has experienced and high quality teaching faculties. They are always helpful and nice toward students. They complete the portions required on time and prepare us well for the external exams. The average age is about 30 to 35. They use presentations and other technology in order for students better understanding.

    As our college is under development and is not fully developed. So the problem we face is in hostel facilities and our own play ground. College will get developed in coming years. But these two problems are there.
