It is a good college, but it can be much better.

Placements: Our college was very good, but they provided very low placements. Only 10% of the students get placed from college. The highest salary offered was Rs. 17,000 per month and the lowest salary offered was Rs. 10,000 per month. The average salary offered was Rs. 12,000 per month. Students got placed as a content writer and reporter. Only 50% of the students got internships from college. All the internships were unpaid. Our placement cell was not so effective.

Infrastructure: Facilities provided in our college were good. We had Wi-Fi, classrooms, library, practical room, cultural society, newsrooms, and theatre society. Our college was small, but the quality was good. We never faced any problem during our tenure at the college. Our hostel was fine. The food served in the canteen was good but a little expensive for us. There was no medical facility in our college, neither there was any ground. The lab-quality was also good.
