    It was fun to let people know about my experience.

    College Infrastructure

    Ever since I was a kid I wanted to pursue law from no other institute but the North Eastern Hill University. It was a delight when I cleared the entrance exam and got the admission. When i set foot in the campus, it felt like one of those series & movie type of campuses. It was one of the best experiences ever and I absolutely loved it. Moving on, the teachers , infrastructure, non- faculty members, etc. Everything was just on point. My favourite is the Library! Just love studying here!

    average experience

    College Infrastructure

    I feel the infrastructure is basic but acceptable. The hostels are good but not great, especially for boys. The Wi-Fi facility is not great, especially in hostels. I had to survive without it. Labs are fine. Classrooms are fine.
