Value-for-money
Although Being one of the premier colleges in kolkata the course fees were minimum , roughly 15000 if i recall correctly. Controlled by the dedicated representatives of the church the college is a mission.
Campus Life
I attended the morning college starting at 6.10am . The college was over by 9.40 am. Not much activity to engage in other than attending classes. Students were busy with studies only. Teachers and support staff were excellent.
Anything Else
Very lucky to have studied in xaviers. The focus and goals in life changed and rather than choosing a job after graduation i chose to take up higher studies. Completed my chartered accountancy course.

College Infrastructure
I studied at the Park Street Campus. The infrastructure of the College is average. The basic amenities are met but the facilities in terms of having sports grounds and state of the art classrooms / laboratories are missing
Academics
The teachers at the Park Street Campus were generally well reputed. However there were some teachers who were strictly below par in terms of subject knowledge which forms the basic criteria for a Institute with great reputation.
Placements
In terms of a Bachelor's Degree there were certain good companies coming in for hiring however the percentage of students getting placed was pretty low. The reason might have been most students at St. Xavier's have higher educational goals and do not opt for a job yet certain willing students were also left behind.
Value-for-money
The cost of pursuing is degree at St. Xavier's is pretty reasonable considering it's national reputation. There is certainly room for improvement and with the new New Town campus opening with much better infrastructure I can certainly see the value for money going up.
Campus Life
The campus life is enigmatic with multiple student clubs and councils actively organizing competitions and fests. Students can be assured of personality development and networking at the buzzing campus.

College Infrastructure
Yes, this college has all the necessary infrastructure, facilities, and equipment. the facilities in classrooms libraries sports centers and hostels for eg. WiFi, smart boards are well-maintained and they have an e-book facility as well. The living spaces are clean, not sure about the canteen as the college is closed due to pandemic, we never got to try that.
Academics
B.com HONS, because this college has a morning facility which helps to utilize the rest of the day more effectively eg. for CA students or students who has to attend other part-time works or courses. Yes, the curriculum is updated and includes all the recent developments in the field.
Placements
I am not sure about that as I m still in 1st sem.............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
Value-for-money
Rs. 100000 (approx) . Teaching is effective and easy to understand. Teachers go below avg. level to meet the student's understanding. Many opportunities to understand the real world better while being embraced by the university. etc

many cultural events take place throughout the year and helpful faculty members

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure could be better but it's not the worst of all. The canteen is a place to improve. The library is one of the best and the classroom could be improved as well. It's really old. The washrooms is another place where improvement can be done.
Academics
The academics is very theoretical and the teachers follow the same teaching standards and methods of the old times. I have also seen discrimination on the basis of marks and classification of first benchers and last benchers.
Placements
I cannot comment on this as I am an undergraduate. The requires 200 characters so this is me writing anything just to fill this part. Their is a placement cell in the college but I don't know how effective it is.
Value-for-money
The cost is around Rs. 50,000 per year and according to me I am getting enough features for this amount.
Campus Life
Being in the morning section which is all boys, I have the worst campus Life.
Anything Else
No thank you.

College Infrastructure
Infrastructure is good (with common room, games room, AC buses for anyone who wants to avail them, sports centres,hostels, computer labs, cafeterias, a separate student WiFi connection, etc) except for the library, it has very peculiar rules along with loads of empty shelves. Highly disappointing for a Xavier’s level university. The campus, however, is spotless clean and very well maintained with separate amenities even in the women’s washroom.
Academics
I am doing bachelors in English honours and our department has a very good and strong faculty who are well informed and experienced in their field of work. Classes are mostly good and sometimes professors go out of their way to make them better and more progressive than just lecturing and noting.
Placements
There is a placement cell which allows students to look into internships while studying, along with job placements post graduation. Although, that is all I know of it. The cell caters to the needs of all kinds of students from all kinds of departments when it comes to internships and you can ask them to look into specific internship programmes you are interested in.
Value-for-money
Considering the infrastructure provided by the college with the exception of the library and the course I opted for, I would consider it value for money.
Campus Life
Campus is very poor because the rules and regulations are very strict and students are hardly allowed outside the classroom. My course has five hours of classes per day, five days a week and attendance is given top priority. Students cannot leave the classroom during class hours and cannot even sit according to their own will inside the classroom, we are required to sit roll numbers wise. In a nutshell, there is hardly any campus life at all.
Anything Else
If you go to college thinking it’s a school and not a college, you will not be frustrated or disappointed. The professors are friendly and supportive, and the students are not unfriendly and don’t bully.

College Infrastructure
Classic old style buildings and looks epic. Each and every entity in college has been named after a significant saint. All the classrooms are well equipped, WiFi on campus and library has e-resource center as well. There are cyber rooms, departmental wise offices, halls and auditoriums which speaks legacy. The spaces are clean and tidy.
Academics
I am studying Master's in Commerce here because I want to pursue lecturership thereafter. The quality of teaching is high class, extremely extremely articulated professors who help you any how. The curriculum is absolutely updated and the college makes you job ready with all it offers.
Placements
The Placements are impressive and the placement cell here is very active. About 35 companies come here every year. Companies like Deloitte, EY, TCS, Exide, etc come here on regular basis. Although I don't seek to enter the Corporate life but still I can convey what I know. The packages offered are decent enough which ranges from 3 Lacs PA to 12 Lacs pa.
Value-for-money
The college's fee structure is of around 27000 for every 3 months and around 120000 per year. At times I feel that the fees is a bit high but the kind of exposure and everything that college offers is beyond money. Students learn a lot by engaging in the activities.
Campus Life
There are a lot of societies and cells who conduct a lot of competitions and events on the campus. Participating in them is a learning experience and helps you build your network as well. My favourite spot on the campus is the green benches where I have done my assignments and homeworks. People are really busy out there and it's a worthwhile Experience.
Anything Else
You must be smart with the time management, because attendance is stringent here.
