College Infrastructure
Decent but not upto the mark. Could have been better. Lots of areas to improve. Quality of classroom facilities need to be revamped to modern taste. Basic infrastructure is decent though. Canteen can be improved.
Academics
Mainly focuses on commerce field. Some of the teachers are very good. But classes were not held regularly during my time and attendance was a big issue. Hardly half the class went to college everyday.
Placements
Very poor placement support. Practically nil. No company comes for campussing. College should be much more proactive in training students focusing on jobs. Only teaching regular classes will not be enough.
Value-for-money
Tuition fees are very less which is a good point.
Campus Life
Practically nil. Maximum initiatives are on behalf of students.
Anything Else
Decent college but could be much much better.

College Infrastructure
South City College has only one building which is 'U' shaped. It runs 3 colleges in the same building (Morning, Day and Evening). It has a canteen, two libraries (Central and Seminar), Girls Common Room, a very small field, IT labs, WiFi (Basically you cannot use it as it gives very less data). Infrastructure is simply what you get in a government college.
Academics
South City College is famous for its commerce department. Most of the teacher's provide quality education. The semester results of this college comes quite good and you will only get a supple if you don't study at all. But don't expect full marks in internal as teacher's purposely don't give.
Placements
Placements Cell of this college is more or less below average. Companies like TCS, Indigo etc visit for campus recruitment but hardly five or ten students are recruited finally. Some companies come with Internship opportunities every year. So don't expect anything big unless you study in a private college.
Value-for-money
Though our Bcom(Hons) course was supposed to cost Rs 5640 every month but after first year they started taking fees semester wise for which we had to pay higher fees. They also charge higher semester examination fees than as mentioned in the Calcutta University payment slip.
Campus Life
The college has NCC, Football team, Cricket team etc and takes part in various tournaments. Teachers are friendly with students and you can approach them for any help. Ragging is strictly prohibited in this campus. This College is located in Golpark nears Ramakrishna Mission.

Heramba Chandra College popularly known as the South City Day College because of its day shift college. Heramba Chandra College is one of the most renowned colleges in Kolkata for Commerce. A simple yet elegant college for everyone with excellent faculty, green environment, big airy classrooms and yes very good and helpful seniors! Loved spending 3 years of my life here. Spent the best memories of my life here.

Where do I start? Actually, it was a great experience to me studying there. I remember the first class of the first day of my college. Our class teacher was very helpful and gentle. The atmosphere was also fabulous and the seniors were very friendly to us too. Infrastructure, library, canteens and all could have been much better.

Everyone is very cooperative.Teachers are very experienced and teach in a very good manner. The building and infrastructure could have been better .No playground does not help,and the canteen is also unhygienic and gross. The fees are very low,so that's a positive . Everything is very simple and not extravagant! The seating facilities could be a lot better and even the washrooms! The crowd and the atmosphere of this college are very very vibrant.People are very helpful and extremely friendly.

Despite being in the centre of the town, the college is very peaceful and meets the needs of students. The teachers also possess high standards as they are very well aware of the subject they teach. The ambience of the college is awesome and refreshing thereby attracting a decent crowd of Kolkata

This college tends to be one of the best in Calcutta University and it's equally good when it comes to studies but classes are hardly held and the attendance is not a problem but at the end of the day the marks are what matters hence it is decently well if you were to take my view.

Amidst the modernisation of south Calcutta dwells this college wd capacity of 10000 or more students. Over a vast area, this college spreads its wings along with a playground,common room for boys and a canteen. Also not to mention there is a beautiful park(lake gardens) located within few metres where we will find our college comes over there.;) Within my 3 years of college life, I enjoyed the most of the time hanging with my buddies in boys common room nd in playground kicking off the sweat from the body. It's worth mentioning about the faculty over there are very very friendly nd helpful and helped me countlessly in studies. Apart from all these not to mention my college crush...;) oops sorry its crushes...:p From dating to cafe coffee day to hanging out in shopping mall we used to chat and have a wonderful time. In short, I have enjoyed my college life to the fullest!!

Heramba Chandra College provides me the 3 golden years of my life. I miss it every moment.The college did not provide any opportunity for placements nor there were any campus interviews organised but the professors individually helped us by providing some referrals. Those referrals were of big help as those paved a smooth path for us. Also, at that time the name of the college was enough for a student to get a job. The faculties or the professors, rather, were very good and were very helpful. they did not look at the subjects they taught as their profession only. There were students from all religion like Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Christians. The course curriculum was elaborative and detailed everything that I was looking for. The same was a comprehensive guideline as to how I should progress in the course. The curriculum helped me in assessing the subjects and the main focus that I should give to. No, the college in which I studied did not provide any internship at that time. I am unaware if the same has been introduced nowadays. We celebrated the freshers' welcome where we got welcomed in our first year. The freshers' welcome was organised on the last day of the college before the pujas which made the event more important as we all were in the festive mood. The college social was organised just after the pujas and it became the medium of celebrating Bijaya. Many artists of high repute performed on both the occasions. I did not avail of any scholarships though there were scholarships available under sports, commerce and extraordinary performance in language. There were no loan facilities provided.

College life can be summed up as pretty much satisfactory. The start of term was pretty good. All the buzz and excitement but however it started to fade away sooner than expected. The teaching faculty is good. The teachers encourage students to give their best ultimately succumbing to the lack of lack of attendance which doesn't help them succeed in their endeavour to bring out the best in every student. There is a huge problem regarding lack of attendance in college which is, however, being looked into by our new Principal. Infrastructure wise I would rate my college below par. The classes are very old and the fans are as good as non-existent. The library has a collection of almost every book that a student would require in the 3 years of college life. There is a lot of encouragement in extracurricular activities and participation in various college fests. Regarding placements, the procedure was very chaotic and haphazard. This led to a lot of students backing out of it. Overall the college is good but there is a scope for improvement or it would be appropriate to say that there is a need for improvement. Beyond a certain point of time students start losing interest and the whole curriculum is disturbed.

The college focuses on strong academics and extra curricular activities as well. It has a very good faculty panel. It offers a variety of subjects to choose from. Overall it will be a very good experience for the student. There are a lot of events which takes place in the college which will enhance the learning experience. College conducts regular examination so that constant learning is there.

The teachers are very warm, they are polite and quite experienced which is good for us. There is a pre-assuption about the presence of the unions but they are not harmful at all. Overall it's a good college. There are a whole lot of activities in the college. The canteen and the ground could have been much better, in short the whole infrastructure needs to be reconsidered. One problem for non-bengali students is that they have to talk in bengali which is not possible.

It was a change from school to college. Everything was so new on the first day but thanks to my helpful seniors, I could adjust very easily to the new environment. The college faculty were excellent and they helped me throughout the 3 years. They also encouraged me to participate in a lot of extracurricular activities like taking part in debates and discussions. I have learned a lot from my college life and really miss those days.

Heramba Chandra College, popularly known as South City College, is located in gariahat area of kolkata. It is a Co-ed college. The education system is quite good, the faculty as well. What prevents it from being best is the political involvements and students union. The cultural activities like sports, annual functions, rabindra Jayanti celebration should be looked after upon, and political activities should be minimised.
