RBU

Remarks -
6.8 /10

Every university has its positive and negative factors that guide is notions in the long run. The sprawling camus is well decorated. The E.M bower tower, near sinthi more is the main campus of the university. The university offers many facilities to the students and it maintains the decor of the campus with high seriousness. However because of it's strict rule related attendance percentage, the students often miss out from major internship opportunities. Every department has its own story to tell, both positive and negative.

Positive: it has a good repute, has got good infrastructure and also big name faculty specially for the fine arts and visual arts section. Has a huge organisation, promoting art and culture in every corner of the world. Negative: My department, Western Classical Music is new but it hasn't got any good faculty yet. And so is the infrastructure which is not yet developed
