College Infrastructure
The college infrastructure is not so good. The classrooms are not tidy. The washroom is not so clean. The library is not so big we can't go and find books of our choice we need to ask them to the teacher. The college doesn't have hostel facility. There is no wifi and smart boards. The field is too small and in not a good condition. There is no canteen.
As I am persuing Bcom from the college, the faculty for commerce is quite good and supporting but we don't become job ready here. They keep updating us with the latest curriculum. But still it needs development in many areas.
Till now we haven't heard anything about the placements in our college and it's my first year. I don't think there is any scope for placements and job in our college. The college doesn't even offer internships for us.
As of now we had only paid Rs 7000 at the time of admission, from then we had not been asked any money not even at the time of form fillup. I think the college is value for money but still it needs so much of development.
Campus Life
My experience is not so good in this college. Though the faculty is supportive but i don't find my classmates too supportive. The college is located at Saheed Nagar in Bhubaneswar which is one of the best places to handle any type of emergencies. There are hospitals, book stores, restaurants, medicine stores etc

College Infrastructure
The college infrastructure is a quiet old. The parking space is big. The classrooms are not so good, the are average. There is no wifi service and no canteen. There is a small playground that too in bad condition. The library is also small. The washrooms are not so hygienic.
As I am a bcom student, so for me commerce faculty is good in the college.They update us with the curriculum but somewhere it needs development. Some of the professors are serious about the career of students and some are liberal. But i don't think it makes a student totally job ready.
Am a first year student but till now we know nothing about the campus selection. I don't think there is any placement in bcom atleast. And if also there would be any placement then it won't be so good.
I had just paid rs7000 during admission and for 1st semester we did not pay anything. The college is worth money. It's a government college. But still the infrastructure and class rooms need to improve a lot including the college playground.
Campus Life
The college campus is average but the students and teachers are co-operative. It is located at Saheed Nagar where all types of facilities are available. All types of shops, hospitals, restaurants etc everything is available.
