Well, the lecturers at Jai Hind are pretty good, atleast the students are satisfied with their teaching. Professors of Science and Commerce department have detailed knowledge about their subject and are co-operative, at times. Most of the communication takes place in English but some teachers become extra friendly during lecture hours and start off with Hindi. As it is one of the most ideal colleges in Mumbai, undoubtedly some of the credit goes to the teaching staff.
The College authorities have mentioned a strict 75%, but you hardly see somebody following that mark. Students say it’s pretty chilled out at Jai Hind and an attendance of around 50% is tolerable. Students who fall short of this mark are put in the defaulters list following which their parents are called or left with some strict warning to attend all the remaining lectures.
You ask anyone about Jain Hind crowd and the standard answer would be, ‘BAAP’ (Rocking, we mean!). Yes, probably the best crowd in any college in the city, Jai Hind has a good blend of smart, stylish and sincere students. Most or almost all of them are ambitious, have great communication skills, decent background and good looks. From hot girls to macho studs, the college has an awesome crowd especially students from the Commerce, BMS and BMM background. You see students working for college committees and festivals and they turn out to be the topper of the batch. Ideally, you’ll make of the most rocking and amazing friends. A dream come true for any student. Nevertheless, there is a Sindhi Minority Quota in the college, so you often bump into a lot of Sindhis.
As Jai Hind is located right next to Marine Drive, there are hundreds of expensive restaurants like Pizzeria, Indian Summers, Café Mocha and Relish. A few local restaurants include Shiv Sagar and Satkar. Having said that, you’ll still find most of the students either in their college canteen or the roadside food parlour outside KC College.
The canteen of Jai Hind college is above average, serves good delicacies at almost affordable prices. Though there aren’t specialties, students are seen chit chatting with friends and a cup of tea.
Talaash, Entourage and Detour are the annual festivals of BMS, BBI and BMM departments respectively.
