Coexistence of fun and torture

Batch of 2017 | BDS
Many people don't know about the college because of less oral health campaigns in and around. Patient flow is questionable in critical situations like rains otherwise also insufficient in number. Faculty at my institute are approachable. College lacks in basic infrastructure. Bathrooms are never adequate n water supply is again a big issue, classrooms lack fans in sufficient numbers thereby making it difficult to focus during classes, hostel lacks in safety from pests n snakes, water n electricity most of the times. This is one major reason students resort to reside in nearby areas. Food provided in the canteen is not hygienic. Despite having space for various outdoor games n talent, management doesn't take any step to encourage. Library doesn't have sufficient books n access to a lot of mainstream books. The most frustrating thing about the college is writing case sheets as duplicate. On top of all of this quota, pressure puts a student to stress due to less patient flow. On the whole, not a nice college to recommend as it lacks in amending to the needs despite approaching the management. The college is keen on making money. If you opt for this college you are solely responsible for yourselves. But you can get real time friends as all of you travel the same boat!
