Review of Southern Academy of Maritime Studies.
Placements: SAMS College was good for students who had sponsorship on a DNS course. It is better to choose another marine college.
Infrastructure: Facilities were not good and facilities were so pathetic. Everything over here was fake. They needed some money. Our hostel facilities were not so good. They said that there would be air-conditioning and washing machines but there were none. Medical facilities were not available. They wouldn't allow for medical issues. The food served was not good and the mess was not cleaned up even in the hostel.
Faculty: Faculty members were almost good but they won't complete the chapters at the time of the exam. There were no study materials. Everything in our college was so old that many things wouldn't work. They didn't have proper facilities for students' practicals.
Other: Our college was strict and they did not conduct other functions.
