Make the best out of the lot.

Batch of Jan. 1, 2018 | BA Economics
Like every college-going student, I walked into my college full of expectations. A year later, few of them were fulfilled and many not. Well, getting into one of the top 3 colleges in India has its own benefits. Firstly, the college gives much scope to sports and has a great ground for football, cricket, and various other sports. Secondly, The infrastructure is really good, especially the main building which always gives a feel good feeling. The college has one old library which shelves more than 1 lakh books. Thirdly, this college can be singled out for the fact that it has the department of human excellence. This dept. encourages to step up and makes them confident. This helps a lot under-privileged to come in terms with standards and requirements of the today's employment scenario. The student union elections in our election give students a sound idea of what politics and student power is indeed. The Hostel mess is really good, it is often relied on by students who come from different states. And, the college gives you the chance to mingle with students from various states, there is much student diversity. And on terms of affordability, the fees quoted by the college seems fair and genuine. And they provide various scholarships to financially weaker students. As far as the security is concerned, the college takes all necessary measures to keep the campus secured. And on the downside, the faculty of the college needs reshuffling and the standards for the professors should be raised. The college should bring in more inter college cultural events. It is a big college and more often one finds lost in it. And although the college is said to be boys only college, few depts. in UG have co-ed which creates a lot disruption somehow. Some concrete decision needs to be made on that matter. The syllabus needs an update as well. But, on the larger scale, it is good college and one can have fun if they can guide themselves through the college without expecting anything from college. There is no ragging issues absolutely and it is very much student friendly. The college houses one star-studded alumni and right now runs on that glory and to sustain the glory for more years to come, it has to raise it standards. Don't expect too much and be prepared to make best out of the lot(worst). All the best!

My Pursuit in Loyola

Posted on 07 Sep' 16 by Johnn
Batch of Jan. 1, 2018 | BA Economics
I walked into my college with a lot of excitement and expectations. Being in Loyola, which always faces in the Top 3 when it comes to ranking across the country, was like being on cloud nine. After spending more than a year here, I am delighted with the college's infrastructure like a library, sports facilities, placement record, reasonable fee structure,hostel mess, discipline. The department of human excellence which aims at nurturing values and to build a socially responsible citizen is unique to our college. The department of outreach requires the 2nd year students to work in slum areas twice a week for their betterment. Although, when it comes to teaching, I wonder how some of the faculty got into the college as they are unfit for the job. Also , being frank the college is resting a lot on their past glory. I am someone who wants it back. There is not much of an encouragement from the college for many of both academic and extra-curricular activities. The college has just 2 departments in UG as Co-ed which has its own boon and bane from a student's point of view.

Batch of Jan. 1, 2019 | B.Com
Best college for academic activities and non curricular activities. Non-curricular activities also given equal preference. Outside exploture is being experienced more in college activities done by them. Infrastructure facilities is awesome. A big library to impart more knowledge on students. Teachers are being more experienced one who knows how the students understand and teaches accordingly. Fees is bit high when compared to other commerce colleges in the location. Your personality will be changed to a good one once you join this college

Is Andhra Loyola college good for MBA through apicet?

Era Madaria 2nd Sep, 2019
Hi Student

Placements :Loyola College is known for its placements. The best companies in the world including Google visit the campus for placements. The college stands among the top 5 colleges as well-reputed companies visit the campus for placements. Goldman Sachs hired one of my friends from the 2nd year for a 1-month internship in May 2019. The recruitment process was tough, and only the best students get selected from our college.

Infrastructure :Classrooms are good and they can accommodate more than 90 students. Each classroom is equipped with a 3D projector. There are mikes available for teachers, and each class also has 4 speakers. There is an amazing canteen available in Loyola college. It's one of the best colleges in India. It's a heritage college with a good reputation and a history of 100 years.

Faculty :Faculty members are not up to the mark considering the reputation of our college. There is too much of politics going on in each and every department. The badge holders are completely unworthy of the posts. They can't even speak proper English, and also the leaders have stage fear. The course curriculum is amazing, but the main issue is with the faculty members. They teach more than 36 subjects in a span of 3 years.

Other :The campus crowd is not that good, and there is also discrimination towards north Indians. Extracurricular activities and other activities give you a lot of exposure if utilised well.

You can comment your further queries in the comment section below.

Best Wishes
