College Infrastructure
Quite good,the college infrastructure can be improved.A lot of new courses are being constantly included in the curriculum.Mnay new blocks are being constructed to accomodate the growing number of students joining for various courses.The college does not have AC's and smart boards etc,but we do have projectors for usage during lectures and presentations.The library is spacious and has a net centre and free wifi as well.The place is clean and the canteen food is decent.
Academics
I'm studying B.Voc sustainable energy management,our college is one of the first to offer this course which can be regarded as a next gen course and is a need of the hour due to the ongoing climate crisis and global warming.The course is still in the developmental stage as only 1 batch has passed out until now.The quality of teaching is fine.
Placements
The course gives sufficient knowledge to take up jobs but the campus placement cell hasn't still made its mark to bring in companies that can recruit students.Many startups from the field come for recruitment,they offer good internships .The placement process is conducted well and adequate training is given
Value-for-money
My course costs me around 20000 rupees per year which is a meagre amount compared to other colleges.I definitely feel that i got my money's worth because of the oppurtunities i got as part of the course.
Campus Life
The campus is located in a place called cathedral road,its a bustling place and is safe for students.Students are not allowed to use their mobile phones in campus which is a topic still debated upon:)

College Infrastructure
Fairly good.The college infrastructure can be improved.A lot of new courses like BVoc Sustainable energy management and BVoc food processing and quality control which are mostly practical oriented can have better lab facilities.New blocks are being constructed to accommodate the growing number of students.While Stella does not boast of great facilities like smart boards and AC's,we use projectors for presentations.The library has a net centre and free WiFi.Cleanliness is good and food is decent.
Academics
I'm studying B.Voc (Sustainable energy management),Stella is one of the first colleges in South India to offer this course which is the need of the hour with the ongoing battle of climate crisis.Since it was started only 4 years ago and only one batch has passed out,it is still in the developmental stage.The course gives sufficient knowledge to take up jobs but the campus placement cell hasn't still made its mark to bring in companies that can recruit students.
Placements
Placements are not very well established yet since mine is a new course.Generally speaking, placements at Stella are quite good.Avg salary offered is around 6-7 Lpa The placement process is smooth and the college provides adequate training.
Value-for-money
The course costs around 20000 per year.I personally feel that I got my full money's worth since we are exposed to lot of applications in the field and lot of opportunities as well.
Campus Life
With a lot of greenery,the campus gives a pleasant atmosphere for students.Stella encourages a lot of co-curricular activities which include sports, theatre, different clubs, student-exchange programmes etc and helps in holistic development of the students.Located near Cathedral road,the place is pretty safe, especially since it's a girls college.Students are not yet allowed to use mobile phones in campus

College Infrastructure
The college has equipments and laboratories. The library is well maintained and good . A new block has also been built so that there are enough classrooms .There is a basketball court , tennis court and NCC ground which are also well maintained.There is the main canteen where you can buy meals, then two small ones where you can get snacks.The food is hygienic and cheap. Although the college as a whole is small , it is well maintained .There is no transportation(unless the college takes you out).
Academics
Academics in stella is pretty good . The curriculum is well updated . There are also many extra credit courses that are available which is good since we can learn things apart from what we study . We also get to pick general electives ,allied electives and major electives which allows students to choose the subject of their choice and learn .
Placements
There’s a career guidance cell in stella maris . This helps students get placed . They also give you advices or training If you have doubts regarding anything related . They will also give you opportunities for internships .
Value-for-money
The fees for the first shift isn’t as much as the second shift . In fact it’s actually pretty cheap when compared to other colleges .
Campus Life
Students are required to have 85% attendance. It it’s above 80% you pay condonation . Only ten percent attendance can be claimed if you provide medical certificate or if you need OD( so people can’t participate much in other college activities).The gates are kept close . You can enter any time but you need gate pass from the HOD if you need to get out anytime in between . It’s compulsory for students to take part in students training program which could be sports or nss or ncc .
Anything Else
Because it’s a catholic college , students will be forced to be there during the inaugural mass which is kind of frustrating. Dress code is better than some other colleges . As long as you don’t wear sleeveless or shorts or three fourths , you’re good to go . The college as a whole is very strict , pretty much like school .

College Infrastructure
As far comparing to other college in Chennai, I feel Stella Maris have good infrastructure. They have four good hostel for students with high security , laboratories with advanced equipments which helps students to take up their own research . the college also have many clubs like western dance club , event management club and so on for students which enables them to showcase their talents. To mention specifically it have ramps and other special equipment for physically challenged students.
Academics
A wonderful place to explore all knowldege and talent. The college more than 40 courses .The admission is purely merit based. You can find best teachers for the course . The content of the course is more comprehensive and elaborates. Each students is given opportunity to take up course from different departments which help them to explore other content too.At the end of every semester students were asked to take up a online review census about each subject ,the facilities.
Placements
The college have a placement cell , which is supported by the alumni of the college. Interested students can register themselves , college will provide special training and even conduct mock interviews. Students in final year will also get notified about the job vacancies in their field . other than this students can get placed in various other important and prestigious institutions all over the world .
Value-for-money
The fee infrastructure differs from department to department , for the course which i opted its 10, 000 per annum , and its completely worth of what I'm learning . students below EWS , SC/ST communities and various other sections were given scholarship and sponsors which obviously leading to huge empowerment of women in the locality. Hostel fee concessions is given for students who can't afford them.
Campus Life
There is a big campus for the NSC students and sports person. Study is the major concentration there . however the library was excellent . collection of rare books can be seen there .it's a whole new world basically , you get to interact with foreign exchange students , various other famous successful personality of your field .The management always try to create a friendly and eco friendly campus for the students. College is provided with height security since it's a women college.

Getting admissions into one of the best arts & science colleges was indeed a huge challenge. Only after I got one did I understand it's worth and only when I graduated did I realize it's true value. Many colleges claim to provide equal importance for extra-curricular' but Stella actually does. Stella gave us an ample number of opportunities to choose from and for all art forms including dance, art, music, mime. It not only gave opportunities for performers but also nurtured the organizers and leaders in us. This stage has shown different paths to the thousands of Stella Marians. It helped us identify our hidden potential and talents. There were also platforms for off-stage skill development in the forms of clubs. Also, Stella is one of the very few colleges to have a beautiful infrastructure amidst the greens. I think the best part about Stella was that everything was provided in right proportions- Rules:Freedom, Strict yet supporting faculty. The college campus placement opportunities were of great quality, however, less. But beyond all this, what any student looks for from a college is friendship and fun. At Stella, there is no paucity for both. Friends from different streams, different years and different cultures give one a whole new level of fun. If what you are looking for is not just a degree but also experiences and memories, Stella it is!

I would truly say this is one of the best girls colleges in the country. So much fun I had here. I was a Co-ed kid during schooling. I thought this transaction would be bad, but it really was great. I would surely miss this place when I pass out. The teachers, students my friends everyone together is making this place the best college. Every day of this final year we all are keeping track. None of us wants to leave this place now. But we all miss home too.

The college offers a good exposure to both academics & recreational activities. Teaches very good values & ethics. Grooms the individuals in all possible fields. Offers a wide range of opportunities for placements in many top companies of the world. Has tie ups with international universities to assist the students in further studies. College is well equipped with the latest technology systems. It also maintains one of the largest libraries in the city. Provides good reference for students for the research work(which is optional for students) students get an option to study a course of their choice apart from what they have already chosen. This gives an opportunity for the students to learn their hobbies or favorite subjects. Teachers are well qualified. They are very friendly and always ready to help. The college assigns a mentor for each student with whom the students can share their views & have a friendly atmosphere. The mentor would guide the student both academically & personally. They also promote leadership qualities. They emphasis for equal participation in extra & co-curricular activities. For students who have studied in vernacular/regional languages, the college has a language partnership programme with student helpers who would help the others in spoken English. It is one of the most recommended college for girls for bachelor in commerce. A lot of well know women personalities have also graduated from this college. And it is purely because of the quality of education & the values & ethics it offers.
