College Infrastructure
Women's Christian College has a very good infrastructure spaced approximately around 20 acres of land with all green fresh environment. A very good college for both day scholars and residents. Very good classrooms, spacious, well lit and comfortably furnished. The labs are all equipped well to provide students with a hands on experience on their chosen field. A very spacious and peaceful library for reference...one can find books from both foreign and Indian authors, very well organised.
Academics
I studied Nutrition and dietetics undergraduate course and I had a good exposure in all the fields of my course. We were encouraged to do a deep study for our projects and seminars. This enabled us to top our placements in either higher studies or in career. Currently I'm pursuing my higher education and what I have learnt in B.Sc has certainly proved to be helpful now. We were not only exposed to curriculum but were also encouraged to do Skill Based Courses (SKB) and Non-Major Electives (NME).
Placements
Our college currently has 100+ placement tie-ups with major companies like Nestle, Britannia for food technology aspirants, top diet and sport counselling centres, also has placements in banking sectors, CGS, Cognizant and so on...The college has career guidance cell, where you can walk-in and talk freely about your career concerns and receive suitable advice. The college also has a system of recording student' achievements and updating them once in every semester, which is very useful for us.
Value-for-money
WCC offers both government-aided and self-finance courses. The annual fee may range between 20-25k for the former and 30-35k for the latter. I feel its really a worth to study here for all you get is knowledge and vast exposure in a very peaceful atmosphere and friendly teachers. You not only gain book knowledge but also practical knowledge.
Campus Life
WCC has one of the most beautiful campuses with a variety of flora and chirping birds. The college is well kept and maintained. The hostel is the resident's paradise. I have not once heard a resident complaining about food or room. There are NCC, NSS, Rotaract, Eco-Club, 1 year of compulsory sport and also inter and intra college cultural programs every year. We can opt to study the final year in America or Britain by qualifying for transfer programs. Both Indian and international students study
Anything Else
I am proud to say that I am an alumni of this renowned institution.

College Infrastructure
My college has a very good infrastructure which includes Xerox shops, libraries, laboratories and a Green box which supplies fresh and healthy foods and the college has banned junk foods including chocolates and chips recently and it also has an atm machine to facilitate both hostellates and day scholars.
Academics
I have chosen bca which is an computer oriented stream and my department has modified the syllabus 5 to 6 years back. And I think it's not up to the level when compared to today's advancements in computer field. And the management is currently in the process of modifying the syllabus which will benefit the upcoming students and they will have a better view about the subjects
Placements
Currently I'm in 2nd year, usually students will get their placements by the final year. According to what I heard is that the placement process took place smoothly even though the number of companies which came are quiet less compared to other departments but most of the students are placed in.
Value-for-money
The cost of my course is rs. 55,000+ and I think it's quiet higher because my department has less staffs and have a single lab.The reason I felt this way is that there is no extra course materials to develop our knowledge and there is no means to tell us about the careers we have through this. I think they can reduce it to further more like atleast 6 or 7 thousand
Campus Life
I love the college ambience surrounded by green environment and it has all the facilitates it needed. And the college have 6 to 7 clubs to enhance the students abilities and the location is safe and convenient. The main negative thing what I think is the limited time. As the blocks are placed far away, we have to rush in every hour before the attendence.
Anything Else
I love this college personally and it also have some strict rules which annoys you sometimes. I would recommend this college if you can tolerate all this rules.

College Infrastructure
The college has a good infrastructure. The blocks have enough classrooms and laboratories for each department. There is a library where various books are available. They also support online classes. The canteen is available during college hours and they are well maintained. The hostels are comfortable and safe ,and the food provided in the mess is hygenic. There is a gym that helps the students to remain fit. There is also a sports club that provides many opportunities for interested students.
Academics
I'm studying BCA because I'm interested in programming. The quality of teaching is good. The curriculum is updated each year to the level of current standards. This is done in consultation with the students. I believe we will be job-ready because I think we are up to date with the knowledge in our field.
Placements
As I'm just in my first year I dont know about the placement processes and trainings. There is a placement room in college where students can collect information about placement offers and job opportunities.
Value-for-money
My course costs approximately 50000 per year. I don't feel I get money's worth of satisfaction. Though the college provides various opportunities we are unable to grab on to those opportunities because we can only focus on academics at a time and can't spare time for other activities. They must allocate time for each activity so that we can make enough use of them.
Campus Life
The campus is vast and there are many different types of trees. There are clubs and committees that gives students opportunities to participate in co-curricular activities. The college has an ATM inside to handle financial emergencies. They have an Apollo shine clinic to handle health emergencies. The location of the college is comfortable for students for transportation.
Anything Else
The college has a good reputation and they keep it up. The college is very old and the buildings are also old. They also have long old traditions that makes the college life joyfull.

College Infrastructure
Our college has all required facilities and infrastructure. Each department has the required number of classrooms and labs. The information resource center ( Library) has a vast collection of books, journals and magazine s.The library provides photocopying and internet browsing facilities and Wi-Fi to all the smart classrooms.There are 6 hostels in campus,they are clean and well maintained.Mess and canteen food is good & hygienic. There is a playground,gym and an upcoming indoor sports stadium.
Academics
I'm doing my 2nd year in B.Sc. Chemistry because I like chemistry. The teaching is good. The curriculum is updated and includes most recent developments . The tests don't include much of problem solving or analytical questioning, hence limits students exploring and studying in depth. The department offers students to work on a research project in the final year which can provide good hands on experience.The course is good on the whole but doesn't make one job ready in the same field.
Placements
Placement processes take place in the third year and it is for all courses. I'm not aware of the details of placement as I'm in my 2nd year. The college has a career guidance and placement cell. Software companies and banks provide placements through college.
Value-for-money
My course fees per year is around ₹30,000. It is definitely worth ones money. There are many events and activities that take place in college to develop oneself. The department also conducts lectures by eminent speakers & scientists. Free online courses from Nptel , language courses and life skill courses are also provided, some are mandated by the college. Govt. and management scholarships are provided.
Campus Life
The campus is small but beautiful with old buildings and trees. Sports and extension activities (social service ) through NCC, NSS, YI and Eco club is compulsory. There are student-run club activities (music, dance, L&D, quiz,art). There are students from different parts of India , teachers & other staff are friendly and supportive. WCC is located in the heart of the city , hence transport is easy and safe. The campus is safe with good security staff. There is a health facility with 2 nurses.
Anything Else
WCC is a good college and it provides a lot of opportunities to develop oneself through the college play,senate, various clubs and workshops etc. There are cultural activities and competitions as well . The hostels are good.

College Infrastructure
The college is nearly 100 years old and some buildings are old too. They are well maintained. Each department is provided with necessary teaching materials and spaces for better understanding and learning experience for students. We have an Information Resource Center (library) that has books on various topics. They also have access to online courses. The hostels are comfortable, safe and well maintained. The food in the canteen as well as the mess for hostel students are healthy and hygienic.
Academics
I'm doing BCA because I like programming and coding. The quality of teaching is average as we don't get much updated to the current standards though the management makes updates in our syllabus in consultation with the students and teachers. As there is a rapid growth in the IT field, I think we will not be job-ready when we graduate though sometimes we do get placement training sessions and career guidance lectures.
Placements
We have a placement room in college where students are free to approach and attain information about various company job offers. I haven't experienced placement process as I'm not yet ready to attend placements.
Value-for-money
My course fee for a year is around 50,000. I think it is worth the pay because the college provides various opportunities. I am satisfied with the infrastructure and the necessities that the college provide.
Campus Life
Apart from academics there are other activities like sports, extension activities and club activities etc that are available for the students. The college is located in such a place that transportation facilities are available easily. It is safe and secure as there are security guards stationed all over the campus through the day and night. In case of any health issues the students can approach Apollo Shine clinic where two nurses are present throughout the day.
Anything Else
On the whole I am satisfied with the college and I would recommend it for others.The courses are divided into shifts according to them being either government aided or self-financed. The timings of the college are also preferable for both shifts.

The college is an absolutely beautiful campus with numerous flora and fauna. It takes one time to understand the beauty of it though in the end the wait always seems worthy. It gives a sense of being at home, especially for the hostel residents. The faculty are all helpful and caring for the students. I feel that I have an emotional connection to the college and all that is in it. It gives me a sense of belonging that I have a lot of people who can stand by me and advice me. WCC has taught me a number of lessons on life. I believe that I will go out of WCC as a wonderful personality.

The standard of education is good and most of the faculty have done their doctoral degree and also their teaching ability is really good. Since I had a choice based credit system in place I was able to choose subjects outside my field. Since it is a government-aided program the infrastructure is not phenomenal but then it is sufficient. Placements are good for other courses probably because a lot of MNCs do visit the college but for life sciences stream it is not good. A lot of scopes is given for extracurriculars. Sports and service are compulsory for the first two years. we have a mixed crowd and college life was good on the whole.

Every college has its own stories to be told forever and so does my Alma Mater. A lush green campus in the center of the city known for its rich Flora and Fauna inside the campus , century old heritage buildings standing tall till date carrying a legacy and story to be told to its children, one set of amazing teachers and a lively student community will make the college worth it there. Studies is just not the only thing at WCC there is something more to it. Various events throughout the year starting from Twin Day( dressing up same with each other), School day, ribbon day, head gear day are some examples. various clubs that are present will enhance the students to make their presence felt in college more. The annual college fest FESTEVE , the most awaited event by all the art college easily fetches a crowd of 5000 people per day. Almost every department will have to make its students work on internships all three years , industrial visits, field trips etc will enhance the Corporate world experience for its students. Student exchange program with renowned two universities in the USA is an add-on to the profile. Placements are not that good but can still be worked upon more.Social service and physical fitness become a mandate in the curriculum for everybody. How can I not mention about these important food related things in our college where even outsider would want to come and taste. Brownies and chocolate buns from Hannah auntie, thick juices from our juice uncle, nesteas and maggies from our Kiosk and the health food center makes our pass time at college.This becomes a dream for every girl to at least study in this institution once and so did i . And mainly the fees is soo affordable that any strata of our society can be a part of this great institute. As only fees are what they take and nothing else. It was one magical journey which I'd want to relieve again.
