Easy going and enjoyable experience.
Tips: We should know that not every college will have what they want. We have to adjust sometimes to the rules of this college. The rules are not that strict. The food options available are also good. For holidays we can take leave whenever and it does not matter.
Likes (Public transportation): I travel in the metro and it is very convenient and comfortable. There is no pushing and the metro is not overcrowded. Also sometimes I go in my car so that is more convenient. But using the public transport is good and I can commute easily.
Dislikes (Student Life): All over there is a pretty good lifestyle but I still feel there is time to improve. You do not have to worry about what people will think. Everyone minds their own business and you have to just enjoy what you are doing.
