College Infrastructure
The infrastructure of our college is pretty good ,it is well designed and a lot of greenery all around, the campus is very beautiful and gives an aesthetic vibe. Our college has proper classroom, highly functional library, canteen and common rooms for students to relax and provides all kinds of facilities like wifi, laboratories etc.
Academics
Loreto is an old and well reputed college in Park street, Kolkata which is well known especially for its departments like English and Geography departments and B.Ed department. The professors don't like us to mug up any thing they want us to understand the syllabus .
Placements
The placement opportunities in our college is not much great as there is no placement cell but the college tries to expand the opportunities of the students by introducing them to various sets of skills.

College Infrastructure
Has everything you need. A great library, a common room where you can chill, there are gym equipments so you can even work out if you wish too, an emergency room, beautiful lawns and an affordable yet great canteen. It is inclusive as well for physically disabled people.
Academics
I am really happy with my department. My professors are extremely helpful and approachable. The quality of lectures is really good too. The professors give good quality notes along with lectures. They will also help you find appropriate references for your study.
Placements
Since it's an arts college, there is not much job placement opportunities. I hope it did anyway, However, the placement cell will have you registered with various organisations offering internships and time and again you will notified about them. In the final year you might be notified about some job opportunities but again most of them are not related to your field.

College Infrastructure
Loreto College has a good infrastructure. It provides the students with all the basic facilities like computer labs, library and canteen, sports field, which are well maintained and hygienic. In fact, Loreto College Library is one of the best libraries in Kolkata.
Academics
The faculty members are excellent and outstanding. I am presently pursuing English honors. The course is vast but the experienced and student friendly facilities and professors make the study an interesting process.
Placements
However the placement is not that great. A lot more can be done. Since Loreto is an arts college primarily so not much stress is given to placement, which I feel should not be so. More companies should be invited so that students get an increased scope of getting placed through college campussing.
Value-for-money
The course cost is almost 20 to 30k per year, which is affordable and quite reasonable. The infrastructure and the facilities provided by the college authorities are satisfactory and makes it worth the money.
Campus Life
The College is located at the heart of the city, so it is well-connected to all the corners of Kolkata. The Park Street and Maidan are the two closest metro stations. And it's a barely 10 minutes walk from the Park Street metro station and the front gate of college and a 3 to 5 minutes walk from Maidan Metro Station to the back gate of the college, which of course is the easiest route. The college infrastructure perfectly ensures the safety of students, especially during emergencies.
Anything Else
Starting from the outstanding infrastructure, brilliant faculty members and excellent educational facilities, the college has it all. However a little bit more emphasis should be given on the co-curricular activities and the annual cultural fest organized by the college. Overall, it's definitely a prestigious institution which can assist you in shaping your career sincerely.

Yes, my college has all the necessary infrastructure, facilities and equipments. The classrooms are largely spacious, have projectors, hence, facilitates studying making it more easier to understand things. The laboratories are well equipped with all the necessary manuals and equipments. We have a computer room and it is always well maintained. The living spaces are big, clean and maintained and the food provided in canteen is both hygienic and tasty.
Academics
I am pursuing English Hons and it is because I have always been interested in literature as it provides such vast view of the past and present society and hence, helps in understanding society and human mind better. The quality of teaching is beyond excellent. The teaching staff is extremely knowledgeable and always ready to impart that knowledge and help the students whenever needed. The curriculum is updated and it includes everything needed. Yes, I am job ready.
Placements
We don't have direct placements done from our college, but studying in Loreto College opens wide range of options for the students as we are not only trained academically but also we are taught to enhance our soft skills, personality and public dealing. Therefore, students when go in the outer world are always welcomed. We can find a Loreto student in almost every field be it fashion, events, acting or other educational fields.
Value-for-money
Loreto is extremely pocket friendly and we get every worth of the money we pay. We have the best staff who impart the best education to us and do everything in their efforts to help us. The library is well stocked and we have wide range of books for every course and from every era possible. The canteen in college always provides tasty and healthy food.
Campus Life
The campus life in Loreto is peaceful, but enjoyable. We have lawns covered with lush green grass and huge trees. The best feature of our college campus is the canteen, which is never found empty. The students are all very friendly and so are the teachers. The student-teacher relations in our college is remarkable as our teachers are always on toes to help us with our studies. The college is located in a prime location and is safe.

College Infrastructure
Loreto college has all the facilities that a college student will want-a big common room filled with games like carrom,chess and table tennis, a library filled with thousands of books,field for playing games, auditorium, concert hall as well as hostels.We even have a large canteen with hot fresh food.
Academics
I studied Economics Honours and the faculty in Loreto was very educated and helpful towards students. We were the last batch that followed 1+1+1 system of examination and the college also held selection exams for our benefits before the main exams.
Placements
Students in Loreto usually always get placed. we were the batch when covid hit, and hence did not get placements. However people in my batch mainly pursued higher studies . Usually companies like ICICI,Indigo, TCS etc comes.
Value-for-money
The cost was divided over 3 years and hence did not burn hole in pockets.There was assistance available for people eho needed it.
Campus Life
My experience in loreto was really good .We had fests and other programmes and activities all throughout the year. Every student had ample opportunities for participation in one thing or the other. We have about 20 cultural societies headed by students as well as a student council. The location of Loreto is very good and is connected to 2 metro stations and 1 bus stand hence is student access friendly.
Anything Else
I loved all three years there. I would definitely encourage people to come to this college for their undergraduate courses. Education and co-curricular activites will go hand in hand in here.

College Infrastructure
It is an liberal arts college with high values and morals. The college provides the students with golden opportunities for their future and a plethora of new possibilities both in personal and pprofessional lives.
Academics
The professors are extremely articulate and well informed about the systems and functioning of the university curriculum. They guide the students thoroughly via regular mentoring and assessments. The teacher student ratio is also great.
Placements
Placements are kind of hit and miss. But nonetheless the college does provide good opportunities. Seminars, webninars and internship opportunities are quite on the higher side whereas job placements can be more developed in upcoming years.
Value-for-money
It takes nearly 12,000-15,000 INR per year for a course. Given the amenities and the guidance. It is indeed a value for money.
Campus Life
Really engaging and encouraging activities apart from good education and morals are held in the college throughout the year.

College Infrastructure
The college infrastructure is very good. There is a common room available for the students which has gym equipments and board games that the students can utilise in their free time. There is a canteen which serves good quality food at reasonable prices. The college campus is not very big in itself which is the only drawback.
Academics
The teachers are excellent and are very approachable which is a plus. The teachers are also there to solve one's doubts at any given time. They are very knowledgeable. The colleges follows the syllabus given by CU which is a little outdated.
Placements
There is no active placement cell. There is also not much scope for the students to get internships with the help of the college. Most students opt for masters after graduating and getting their degree.
Value-for-money
The course fees is very low in comparison to other colleges in the city but the quality and content of the course is very good. Hence, a student will get their money's worth from studying in this college.
Campus Life
There are various societies for the students to take part in and one will definitely find something that interests them. There are also courses at very low fees available for the students to take after college hours. There are several events that take place throughout the year and teachers encourage the students to participate.
Anything Else
Overall, one will have a very good experience studying in this college.

I had a good experience in college. It provided me with great infrastructure as well as good learning exposure. The faculty is very experienced and was always ready to help me out with any kind of problem. My college was a day college and thus, had no hostels. All the students were day scholars. As a whole it was a great experience.

My college is the best place to be for career orientated students. The environment very much favors the student to bring about the best in her. Teachers are also very supportive and approachable. the principal is very encouraging and enthusiastic about students taking part in other activities as well as studies. The regular assembly and the fact that we have to write absent notes is irritating. Sometimes the rules and regulations get on nerves but all in all like my college
