The University has a wonderful vibe and energy which is well-suited for students to study and interact with. However, student politics is also very strong with 3 leading parties struggling for power. The students will be put under no pressure to participate in such activities against their will. The authority is well-functioning but there is a lot of scope for improvement. All in all, the university provides a great space for students from all cultures and economic backgrounds to come together and study in.
No, they were efficient and helpful. They did their bit in time and I didn't face any issue for them. Sometimes I felt the numbers of clerks should be increased to cater to the huge student base.
I have gained a lot from this college in this three years. So all I have a very good impression about this college. The College management was very active and honest in their duties. The institute has an anti-ragging committee to ensure that there will be no such incident happen to innocent newly admitted student by the seniors.
