Campus life is not as good compared to IITs as their is lot of academic pressure. Gender ratio is also very poor. But from this year, some seats have been reserved for girls to improve it. If you are able to manage heavy pressure of academics, you can participate in sports and competitions which happen from time to time. The overall performance of these events is dependent upon students participation which is not so good.
