Good campus area, enjoyable crowd, average faculty members and low maintenance .
Placements: The college doesn't provide fair placement opportunities to the students. Students try to earn internship opportunities working under renowned lawyers and officials. The college largely provides internship opportunities, which are conducted for 1 month. Overall, students themselves have to earn placements and internships.
Infrastructure: The college has a wide campus area with a good number of classrooms and it has trees all around the college. The college has a good canteen facility with a variety of food available there at a very reasonable price. The college also has a lot of ground. The college also provides medical facilities to the students in case of an emergency.
Faculty: The faculty of the college has a sort of mixed personality; some teachers are highly educated and are of a very helpful nature and some teachers are really egoistic. The course curriculum is above average, covering varied subjects and knowledge about the Indian Constitution and prevailing laws. The semester exams are easy to pass if you just go through previous year's question papers.
Other: The college organizes various trips for the students. Sports meetings and various cultural events are organized in the college.

Integrated M.Com. - Batch of 2025
1Placements1Infrastructure4Faculty4Crowd & Campus Life3Value for Money
Satisfied with the faculty, events, and crowd. Not happy with infrastructure and placement.
Placements: No one got placement in my batch after completing B.Com., as they don't arrange placements for the students doing integrated M.Com. As no one from my batch got recruited, I am unaware of the highest, lowest, and average package offered. There is no internship in my course either.
Infrastructure: In my department, USFS, infrastructure facilities are really bad. A lot of times, there is no water in the washrooms, and sometimes, there is not even drinking water on some floors. On the 1st floor, in women's washrooms, 1 toilet doesn't even have a clock, and 1 doesn't get locked properly. In my classroom, two of the fans were not working. We complained many times, and they were fixed almost after 2–3 months of the commencement of the classes. There is no Wi-Fi on the campus. Classrooms are not cleaned every day. Mostly, they are left dirty. Not all classes have projectors. Only some have. I don't live in a hostel, so I don't have any personal experience, but my friends who stay there do tell me that the hostel facilities are also not very good, and the food is also not good.
Faculty: Teachers in my department are quite good. They are really qualified, knowledgeable, and helpful. For my queries, I have messaged them personally a lot of times, and they have always been answered in a very nice manner. In fact, I got the best teacher of my life at the university itself. Yes, this course curriculum is quite relevant. We are also being taught some software, which is definitely going to help us in our careers. So yes, it makes the students industry-ready. The semester exams are fine. They are not very difficult or easy. If you study, you can score really well. I am not sure about the pass percentage.
Other: I want to become a teacher of commerce, for which I want to do a B.Com. and then a M.Com. Here I was getting an integrated M.Com. course, so I chose this. I did not have to go through the whole admissions process again at the time of my M.Com., so that's a good thing about this course. At the time of M.Com. (only for integrated courses), research scholars are provided as teachers, which I think is not good. Students in integrated courses should also get proper teachers. The USFS department organizes one of the best events. Last year, they organized their first fest called AGAAZ, which was even better than the so-called best fest of the UBS department. At the time of farewell, there is a whole farewell week with paths, scribble days, group photography, and many more. The Diwali party is just fantastic, with DJs and all. Teachers Day is also very well celebrated. Jashan and the youth fest are also fun. Our department organizes a lot of extracurricular competitions as well.

Bachelor of Computer Application (BCA) - Batch of 2026

It is an autonomous college with NBA accreditation.
Placements: Last year, 60% of students got placed. The highest package offered was 6 LPA. Top recruiters are TCS, Wipro, etc. The college also provides internship opportunities, but many students have to find internships on their own. The college should provide more internship opportunities for students.
Infrastructure: The infrastructure is pretty decent. There are many computer labs available for BCA and CSE students. Hostel facilities are also available, and the quality of food is average, like in every college. Sports facilities are also available, and the college organizes tournaments every year for cricket, football, badminton, and kabaddi.
Faculty: Most of the faculty members are Master's and Ph.D. holders and are well experienced. After completing this course, one can easily get placed in an IT company if he/she has studied well enough. Semester exams are not very difficult; one can easily pass if he/she has attended lectures regularly.
Other: I was very interested in the IT sector, but I had not opted for Science in 12th class, so I decided to take admission in BCA. The college should provide more internship opportunities for students. Many events are organized every year, one of which is 'Prayass,' a cultural event.

Satisfied by faculty but bad placements.
Placements: I have not yet graduated, but the placement value of our college is zero. You can just get a degree but not a job from here. No recruiting companies come here for employees. 0% of students get internships from any course by any companies.
