    College Infrastructure

    The infrastructure of my college is amazing and it has a beautiful campus. It has well equipped laboratories for the respective departments. The teachers here use boards as well as projectors for teaching. The library has numerous collections of books and magazines. The college does not have a hostel facility of its own but many PG's are available within a distance of 1 km. The canteen is the best place here with several food items and the quality of the food served is also great and hygienic.
