NEHU is a great place to study as it based in Shillong. Life there is truly enjoyable with the people living in it are friendly always seeking to help others. Though the schedule may be a bit hectic NEHU provides facilities for recreational activities which makes it wothwhile. The placements are NEHU are good too with the best packages being around 12 lakhs every year. The faculty in NEHU are also very friendly and supportive. We can easily approach them to seek guidance without hesitating. The college hostels are good but a bit cramped to be honest. A bit of rennovation of the hostels will go a long way in helping the students live comfortably. Still the youthful people living in them make the environment merry with music being played every evening. The Central Library has over 230000 books and subscribes to about 400 foreign and Indian journals. It was also ranked 1821 all over the world by the University Ranking by Academic Performance. Currently the university offers degree in IT, Electronics and Communication, Energy and Biomedical Engineering. As it is based in Shillong the fests that are held are without question some of the bests in the entire state with metals bands regularly called on all occasions. Also the hillside scenery helps relax us at the end of a hectic day making it seem like a slice of paradise. NH7 Weekender is also held in Shillong every year which gives special offers for music lovers of NEHU. All in all, if you love music and nature, I highly recommend you to take admission into this college to enjoy life at its finest.

North-Eastern Hill University (NEHU) is one of the oldest universities in the area. It's picturesque beauty and comforting solitude is one you can never be bored of. If you're a nature person then this should be your go-to place. You can take long walks in the campus and there'll always be a new view. We all hate hostels but there are a lot of people here who don't feel like going home during the breaks because they're mesmerised by its beauty. The structure of the building is not one that you can admire. Most colleges boast of huge buildings in their prospectus and that is one thing that NEHU may lag in but there aren't any dilapidated buildings or buildings that make you feel like they're going to fall on your head any moment soon. The classrooms are okay and you can comfortably study here. Other than these, the university has a huge two-storeyed library, gymnasium, health centre, indoor and outdoor playing fields, etc. Next up are teachers. Most of the teachers here are friendly and are easily accessible. In fact, most of them stay on the campus and over the course of a few days or months, students tend to form a beautiful bond with teachers. Also, the students here come from various walks of life. There are no cases of ragging and the students share a united front. Another advantage of NEHU is that it is affordable. Its fee structure is low and you will never feel its blow on your pocket because there isn't any. (P.S: If you're a spend-thrift then this is a different matter) Over the past few years, NEHU has made a lot of progress in terms of placements. There have been many companies for the fields of engineering in the year 2016-2017. The list is satisfactory and it needs to work on this a lot. Keeping in mind the progress it has made, hopefully, the list of companies coming to NEHU would only expand further. A problem you may face here is the lack of events, seminars and trainings. Such events are very few in number. Also, there is no system of compulsory internship or industrial tours. Last but not the least, hostels. One of the most vital organs of a student's life. There are limited seats in hostels and the food is pathetic. Yes, we all complain about hostel food but if you're from parts of India where masale-daar food is eaten then you're in for some trouble. Here, the food is pretty bland and you would just have to adjust to this. BUT! Cleanliness is next to Godliness and the hostels are very clean so hopefully, you may just encounter God walking through the hostel corridors one day. (winks) Before you take admission here, you should remember that the administration is least bothered by the troubles of the students(as may be the case with other colleges) and they only look into our problems when some dignitary is coming to NEHU or some sort of inspection is going to take place. But then again, you can always place your complaint to the students' union and hope it all works out. P.S: My entire review is only for B.Tech department of NEHU and not the entire university.

The aim of education is not merely to land a high-paying job

For now.... College life is still yet to be discovered. Regarding recreational activities, there are so many activities in the college which is really an enjoyable experience in a good way. Infrastructure is good. Faculty are excellent. And girls hostels is separated metres away from boys hotels. What to expect more on hostel food but I think our hostel serves the best food. And according to me, University don't make good students but students make the university a good one. The aim of education is not merely to land a high-paying job or getting good grades and get the job. It should empower you to find a suitable work for yourself.
