Our college has 4 blocks for hostels for both girls and boys. The First years stay in the newer blocks which have spacious rooms and are double sharing. 2nd year onwards, students shift to the old block where the rooms are small but are single. There’s an academic block in the shape of the Parliament of India which has all the main buildings including the Registrar’s and VC’s office. We have grounds for football, cricket, volleyball. We have 2 basketball courts and a state of the art Lawn Tennis Court.
For the first years there are double sharing rooms whereas the seniors get single sharing rooms. Rooms are cleaned everyday by the Clean Tech people and there’s a gym, TT Table, Badminton court, and a common field area for both the hostels.
Faculty and Academics
The standard of Faculty is a pertinent issue. While some of the faculty are really good, some makes us doze through our classes. But it has been improving constantly with the addition of new faculties. We have B.A.LLB. Hons. in which Political Science would be the Major.
Rs. 1,80,000 per annum
We have a cafeteria at the backside of our college, next to the tennis court. All types of delicacies from veg to non veg is served. There’s also a lake at the back side of the cafe to spend the evenings in love with the nature.
Student Culture and Activities
We have various societies like the Moot Court Society, Cultural Committee, Debating Society, Sports Committee. All of these committees are student run and can be joined by any interested student. There are various activities which keep going on weekly.
We had 12 PPOs and 56 placements in our batch of 2017. Close to 95% of the people who sat for placements got their job at prestigious law firms like Amarchand, Trilegal.
It’s away from the city so it’s really peaceful. The college gives you free time to pursue your interest. Our college also grants funding for all the Moots and Paper Presentations so all the deserving students can take part without worrying about the finances.
Being so far away from the city, even getting a hair cut takes you an hour just in travelling time. The faculties are one of the issues too.
Any Other Comments
You might not really be impressed by looking at the college in the first place. It’s a huge campus. But with time, you fall in love as I did with my 3rd year approaching.
