Campus Life :

I have a great experience in my college life and which moulded me to face any situation with a smile and the ability to face any challenges. And our campus is having equal gender ratio in most of the class. We Have NCC and NSS division in our college and there are camps conducted druing that time. We have build a nearby road during ours NSS camp. Arts and Sports day are celebrated with arts and sports competition. Ours college has a Excellent Science Lab, but I have taken commerce group so no need for to visit lab.

Course Curriculum Overview :

Our college was under M. G. University, the Course curriculum will be provided by the University and also exam too is conducted by them. During our time there is no industrial visit, but it is research driven and very fair too. Ours college has given enough freedom for us with slight restricion, with that most of us become better in ours future life.

Course Curriculum Overview :

The course and the faculties were really good. But when it comes to curriculum I feel like it’s not been updated properly. We were taught the same subjects which were taught years back. Actually the curriculum has to be changed every year. But it is not happening here. I don’t blame my college, M.G. university is responsible. And the curriculum is more theoretical the application level is low and the industrial exposure as such was low because there was no industrial visits or Such takeaways. One of my favourite faculty is raj kumar, he taught us accounting part.

Remarks :

Good teaching, college timing is the main element attracted me it was from morning 8 to afternoon 1. College has got a friendly environment which helps to adopt in to the learning aspect fast, teachers are really friendly, I got good review from the ex students studied in the college.As the college is a private institution they give utmost importance to studies. Teachers provided all the necessary notes and Chinmaya mission as it is more of disciplined and had a systematic practice of moral values that is nurtured to the students.

College Events :

My college life was pretty good. I got chance to participate in inter college fest and also got chance to participate in various events which are conducted in the college so it helped to come out of my comfort zone. We didn’t conducted any fest in our college, because college was not that big enough to accommodate the outsiders. But we had different events and functions like arts day etc which was conducted for us in my college.

Admission :

A student’s record in and outside the high school classroom demonstrates to an admissions officer the kind of contributions he or she will make at the college level. Colleges are looking for candidates who perform consistently well or show a record of improvement in rigorous or college-prep courses. This means the right coursework, good grades, and activities that have a positive impact should be a continuous focus throughout high school.

Campus Life :

Extracurriculars are one of the best things in cms we have sports arts day union day and all both girls and boys are included in these programmes but usually girls are more in cultural day programme while boys are more participated in sports programme. There is no politics inside campus because the College became autonomous and the College banned politics inside campus. The College have more girls than boys but not by a huge margin

Admission :

The mark I achieved in +2 was not enough for attainig admission in college I preferred. So I decided to try in other colleges for admission but i failed to get there too, then i applied for the management seat in the college where I am studying now which was referred by one of my relative so I did it accordingly. After 1 week they called me and said to join.

Course Curriculum Overview :

My opinion about my course curriculum is good because it is the course which I wished for.The course which I took is Bcom Finance And Taxation The exam stucture is that we have six semester exams and in each semester we have two internals.The mark we achieve im internals will reflect on the semester examination which determines the grade.

Alumni/Alumna :

The seniors are very good in approach and they treat us as their own brothers and we do the same. The seniors are very helpful and kind and we often spend our leisure time together with seniors. I am happy and lucky to have seniors of having same wave length of thinking. Me and my seniors shares the same school of thought.

Admission :

As I did not have the minimum required marks to get into college I had to get my spot through management seat by paying a certain amount of money which guaranteed my place in the college. By through on the basis of recommendation the money I had to pay was less as compared to the regular fee.

Placement Experience :

The placements and job opportunities provided by the college is non satisfactory. Mg college does not provide internship for my course but provides internship for other courses such as B.Voc etc. I feel the after college opportunities that this college provided in not sufficient.

Fee Structure And Facilities :

The fee structure is paid on a monthly basis. It is compulsory for all. Scholarship programs are provided by the college to help in a student's education. Students coming from a backward class family gets fee exception. The fees for the college are really cheap.
