Great Experience & Student Life

I think this university is good for the people who prioritise education. It does hold many activities but they give special focus towards education . Please note that this university lacks facilities and only has apartments as dorms.

Okay. Not bad not that good either.

Not that many students. Old building. Cafe is so small. Few facilities. Not many professional lecturer. Management is so bad. But the environment is good. Students very friendly.

Very rewarding, but can also be frustrating

I was a part of the earlier batches of students, when many systems were set up in place. Courses were great and the classes were engaging, but with difficulties in administration certain aspects of the college experience were really frustrating.
