Students with exponentially decreasing attendance figures such as 30% to 3% to 0.3% have been found to get away easily. So no problems on this front. “Just produce a fake medical certificate and it’ll do the work for you”, says one of their student.
Majority of the students come from villages. 5% are said to be ‘impossible to last a conversation with’. Students say that you cannot possibly hangout with this crowd except if you fall into one of the above categories.
The food was not edible once upon a time. At the most, you could have Pepsi. “With anything else”, says a student, “you may have been risking your life.” However, things have changed now and the canteen is a much better place. Students love the canteen now.
You will have to travel to Khargar or Belapur for spending some quality time with friends. There is a "tapri" outside college which is patronized by many students. Most of the students dont really travel, they prefer chilling on the campus itself.

Stay away if you want to live and have a life. The crowd is depressing and there are no pretty faces to give respite. Everything and everyone takes a lot of time in getting things done, especially anything which has some form filling.
