Our college has good curriculum, helpful teachers, and good campus life.
Placements: TCS visits our campus to hire students. Our batchmates want to pursue higher studies, and none of them got placed. In the previous year, many students were placed.
Infrastructure: Our college has a huge area with many buildings, and our campus is greenery. There were two libraries, one for science and another one for the arts. Departmental libraries were also available. The libraries were well-stocked, and several books were available. There were many classrooms, and each one of them was very spacious and airy. There were galleries and smart classrooms as well. Our college provides hostel in Saltlake with modern amenities and rooms were well-maintained. The food served in the canteen was good at a reasonable rate, which was ideal for day scholars.
Faculty: All our professors were very helpful and kind to everyone. They were always one step forward in helping us in every way possible. They were friendly and very knowledgeable. Our course curriculum had data analysis and econometrics, which every company looks for. The topics taught were relevant. Semester exams were not very easy, but our professors prepared us in every way. The pass percentage was approximately 85%. Students were among the top-ranked in the city.
Other: Our college organises an annual fest Aalap. We had inter-college competitions and concerts. We also had an annual day where students and alumni were felicitated. This college organised a Bengal economic meeting where eminent professors from all over India attended and gave paper presentations, which were very insightful and good for education. State scholarships like Kanyashree were available for students. Sports day was also conducted every year, and many students and teachers participate for entertainment.

Bethune College provides good campus life and good academic life.
Placements: Bachelors don't have placement services in most colleges in West Bengal, but Bethune gets a placement offer every year from Tata Consultancy Services. In our batch, no one was interested in getting placed right after our bachelor's. Most were pursuing Masters and the rest were preparing for various government jobs. From the previous batch, two of our seniors got placed in TCS.
Infrastructure: Bethune was the oldest women's college in Asia. The majority of the infrastructure was from the colonial era and was well maintained. During our college years, two new buildings were inaugurated. One building contained the common room for students and the other building contained a teachers' meditation room. The other building was the auditorium building. The labs were well maintained. We have a sports room and a union room. There were two libraries, both of which were well maintained. The canteen food was good and affordable.
Faculty: The course curriculum was interesting and will prepare students both for industry and academia. Professors were student-friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. There were elective papers in the 5th and 6th semesters along with the core papers. The students have to write a 5000–7000 word dissertation on an issue in Indian Economics in the final semester, which will be supervised by the professors. The semester exams were centralized exams taken by the University of Calcutta.
Other: Our college takes pride in providing a fun student life. There were various extra-curricular activities, seminars and workshops being hosted. There were various clubs like photography, film and drama, debate, etc. The students' committee was a large part of the college. The annual college fest, Aalap, was very fun and was organized by the students and the teachers' committee.

Review of Bethune College.
Placements: Around 95% of students were placed. The average salary package offered was 4 LPA. TCS, Infosys, and Wipro were the top recruiting companies. Most of the students were not interested in placements, and they opt for higher studies i.e masters' and Ph.D.
Infrastructure: Our department was well-equipped with air-conditioners and a computer laboratory. The campus atmosphere was beautiful, and the environment was peaceful. The library was well stocked with every book needed for the course. It provides a separate sports room where every kind of sports equipment was available. There was also a gym for students to use.
Faculty: Faculty members were well qualified and cooperative. They give equal attention to every student. One can easily communicate with teachers in case of any difficulty. Classes were taken regularly. In our previous semester, students were given compulsory projects, and the professors were helpful.

Our college provides helpful faculty members and nice atmosphere.
Placements: Placement cell rarely provides information about recruiting companies. None of the students were placed. The top recruiting company was Cognizant.
Infrastructure: There is no hostel in the college. Psychology classrooms and labs are good. Library facilities are not good because the librarian is not helpful. Wi-Fi connection in the library is very good. Canteen is fine and the food quality is good. There is a games room.
Faculty: The pass percentage is 33% and it's under CU. Semester exams were tough. The course curriculum is relevant but doesn't make students industry-ready. Teachers are helpful, knowledgeable, and qualified.
Other: Events and fests were fun. There are no extracurricular activities except annual sports day or annual programs.
