College Infrastructure
The Infrastructure is pretty average. The facilities are very basic. The condition of Labs and classrooms are clean. The campus is equipped with WiFi. Still, I expected a bit more before applying for it.
Academics
I did my BCom from here.up tothe mark. The curriculum has a lag even in getting updated. For example, when the New Indirect tax laws were implemented in the parliament, our university took time to adapt to and students were giving exams in old syllabus. Some professors are helpful, some are not that helpful. You have to perspire to make your way out.NotupupNot
Placements
Rarely companies come for placements. In our district there are industries like Emami, Birla tyres, etc but they don't come in regular basis. Even if they come the package they offer is like 2 LPA- 3 LPA
Value-for-money
It's a government University. It must have had the advantage on its own just because it's a government University. The fees are quite low 50k-60k for the course. But still, people who are not capable of going outside and do further studies, they make their way out and become successful on their own.
Campus Life
Campus Life is regular. Not much lively. Not much students. Although, some seminars and workshops take place but they are not enough for the students. The college council has to work on this, else it's highly risky if you don't train the students well. Yes there is canteen and library where students interact but it has to be better than this
Anything Else
If you are sure that you can make your way out without depending on this university much, you may go there.

Located in the center of Balasore city, FM College is the 2nd top most College of Odisha. With all the facilities of Canteen and Library it provides immense facilities to the students. Staff faculty are always here as helping hand. Extra curricular activities , Sports events followed by Annual functions conducted every year are a blast. The only negative side is there is no proper placement facility. Nevertheless my College is MY COLLEGE......

"HISTORY Balasore, which evokes an image of intellectual capability of its populace in the country has a glorious history. The name Balasore originated from a Persian word ‘Bala-e-sar’ meaning a sea- shore town. But the locals believe that the word Balasore is derived from its original Sanskrit root ‘Baneswar’, the citadel of a famous Saivite cult. A north-eastern district of Orissa, Balasore, is surrounded by the Bay of Bengal in the east, the district of Midnapur (West Bengal) in the north-east, the forest of Mayurbhanj & Keonjhar districts in the north and Bhadrak in the south. The town has long been known for its maritime glories, the golden sea-beach and defence establishments at Chandipur. Originally named Balasore College, Fakir Mohan College was established on 6th July 1944. On 2nd August 1949, it was renamed Fakir Mohan College after the great Oriya poet and novelist Vyasakabi Fakir Mohan Senapati. Since 1946, with the opening of honors in various subjects, the college has carved out a name for itself in the academic echelons of the state. The college has Post Graduate teaching facilities in Commerce (1979-80), Mathematics (1985-86), Physics (1988-89), Political Science (1992-93) and Oriya (1994-95). Conferment of autonomy in 1999 opened up new opportunities and challenges and the college rose to the occasion by capitalizing on the benefits of autonomy. The college was conferred with CPE status in the year 2006-07. The college also provides Degree Courses, (Self Financing) in Business Administration (Hons.), Computer Science (Hons), UGC sponsored Career Oriented Programme (COP)-one year certificate course in Business English, Two year Diploma in Journalism and Mass Communication, Lateral Entry- IGNOU Study Center-2106, IGNOU ODL Convergence scheme under Distant Education Council - FMC7501, Computer Point for Computer Literacy. The College provides Joint Venture Computer Education Programme in collaboration with Computer Point for the bona fide students of the college. It also has a study center of IGNOU, which facilitates lateral entry into various courses. LOCATION The college is located at Balasore town, 200 Kms. from the state capital Bhubaneswar, and 250 Kms. from Kolkata. It is well linked with other parts of the state and the country by roadways and railways. The college is 3 Kms. from the National Highway No.5 and 1 Km. from the Balasore Railway station, on the South Eastern Railways. CLIMATE The climate of Balasore town is moderate throughout the year due to its proximity to the Bay of Bengal. MISSION The college aims at providing quality education, transforming the students in to good citizens by inculcating a sense of values in them and moulding their character and conduct to face the challenges of life. VISION With a view to making the college a center for excellence, the college envisions to open more professional courses in Management, Information Technology, Bio-technology, Bio-informatics and Environmental Studies, etc., and make them effective by developing the existing infrastructure. It envisions to make courses more participating and career oriented. The college shall strengthen healthy practices and support services for effective implementation of education to real life situations."

There are just a few computers, no digitalisation. The library has good collection of books but the maintenance is very poor. There is no college canteen and the communication to the college is very poor."
