The physics dept. is under DBT Star status scheme, under this new equipments, and good amount of funds are given to the Dept. Every year. Physics students are given proper exposure and experience to decide their interests in the field of physics.
I am studying physics. Its the only college in NorthEast which provides three subject combinations in physics like (Physics with Mathematics & Chemistry), (Physics with Mathematics & Electronics), (Physics with Mathematics & Computer science). It helps the students to learn whatever interests they have whether its Biophysics, Electronics, Computational physics or etc. The students can choose the combination they desire to learn.
I am not aware about placements in the college but i have heard that students gets some jobs and all. Most of the students in the college goes for higher studies. How much i know very less students apply for job after graduation majority goes for higher studies.
My complete course for three years costed me 1 lakh apprx. And the money was worth it the curriculum is engaging and if you wish you can join so many clubs like science club, chess club, book club, art club and etc.... And NCC, NSS and IIC cells are there. And we get a lot of study tours and experimental exposure in the field of physics that's worth everything.
The college campus is very beautiful. It has a lot of cherry blossom trees. In the month of October whole campus is covered under the pink colour of the trees. There are students corners like cafeteria (For coffee breaks), boys common room(For Indoor board games) , girls common room.
St Edmunds college shillong is in close proximity with the school and highschool , therefore it is very spacious. The campus is clean, well maintained and has many trees and plants planted all around. It doesn't have Wifi for the students, a library and laboratories. The cafeterias are small and crowded. But the food is clean and hygienic.
I'm currently studying my Bachelor's degree in Sociology. The teachers are mostly PH.d holders But sometimes it seems that the teachers are least brothered about their own students. Some teachers can really explain well while some teachers no matter how hard they try we just can't seem to understand them.
I don't think are college has any placement cells because I haven't never heard any of the teachers nor students mention it. Our college needs to focus and stress on this because most of us won't know what to do after passing out.
Our course costs about 22000 per year. For 22000 a year I feel like the college could be a bit better. Our college stills lags behind in many things compared to other colleges.
Friends make my campus life better. Their is a coffee shop where most students hang out. We have a football field and basket ball court. We have a college week known as "edblazon" which last for a week. This is one of my favourite time of the year. Where we can truly enjoy our college life.
Many students from all other states In northeast India come to our college to study, So I think it's safe to say that it is one of the most recognised college In Northeast India.
Yes the college has all the necessary infrastructure, Classrooms are quite simple with a projector and screen for presentations, No sports center's and the gym is always closed. We do not have WiFi for students. And the food is clean and the canteens are well maintained.
I'm currently pursuing my degree in Sociology. I would say that the teachers of our department are quite average because they couldn't care less about their own students. I think what we're studying would not make us job ready.
There are no such things as placement in our college. I have not heard of anyone getting a placement out of our college. But I won't be surprised as most colleges in shillong do not give. Students such a thing
About Eleven thousand per semester. I would say not quite my money's worth because with the level of teaching it's not that good.
The campus is quite big. Best feature would be the Auditorium and the playing field. Students going there are very helpful. For the staff I would say no they are just too rude sometimes. And as of the location yes it's very safe and it can handle emergencies as the nearest hospital is only about 5 minutes away and even a police station and a fire station.
Hope you are doing well and keeping great...
