The infrastructure of Christ is something other worldly. The central campus in Bangalore has many blocks, two libraries, play area, admin block, places to sit, a huge canteen and also includes the hostels. The technological infrastructure is also very commendable and there are many desktops in the library, open for student's use. The campus is very green and uses solar energy; it is a "zero-waste campus".
The best thing about Christ is the people there before anything else. They are helpful, generous, always up to solve any issues, very sweet, and understanding, and do not leave you alone. The amount of multiculturalism present in the university is amusing as all different kinds of people mingle together in one space. This was also one of the reasons why I had wanted to be a part of Christ. Cultural diversity is a thing of beauty, to be honest. And while Christ admits people from so many different backgrounds, it also celebrates this diversity through events like Bhasha Utsav/Ethnic Day. Socially and culturally rich, I have encountered people from India and outside India too. The social environment at Christ, even in the online mode has been jovial and generous. Opportunities: There are endless opportunities and if you are a multi-tasker, good for you. Even after taking up just two things together, I felt as if a lot is going on.
The hustle-bustle of college life is amazing, especially during fests as I’ve experienced during the online fest that took place. Christ is very swift in its approach too, as they have very easily and efficiently shifted everything from classes to fests and competitions to the online mode. There are several societies and clubs you can join. I am a part of the Student Welfare Office [SWO] and the volunteer body within the Centre for Social Action [CSA] which is the two major sectors of Christ. There are others such as Debate Society, the Cultural Team, etc. which have selection processes to be a part of. Once I enrolled in Christ, I was exposed to so many people and opportunities all at once, that it was a little too overwhelming. But after a few days, I was able to sort out things that I really wanted to be a part of and things that I could skip and try if I ever get any more time later. But one thing that I have come to realize is there is a lack of time in Christ. The first thing that I did was take part in the smallest of activities which led me to make a network within the university. I now know some of my seniors who are heads of committees. This has also led to me being known by them and I am asked my availability for any work that I can do. This has also exposed me to opportunities more than anyone else. I have thus been able to be a part of organizing an event, work on projects under my seniors’ guidance and learn from them.Read Full Review
Christ University Bangalore campus sprawls for about 25 acres of land and is well equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure facilities. B.Com classes are mostly in Block II and IV, wherein the classrooms are spacious, well maintained, clean, and equipped with LCD projectors and speakers. The blocks provide with both stairs and lift facilities along with kiosks and food courts. There is a dedicated commerce lab, IT lab, entrepreneurship cell, innovation center, gym as well as group study area. Christ houses a library of more than 2,50,000 books and periodicals and the University library is a sheer knowledge haven that spans to 4 floors where books can be borrowed for two weeks’ time. There are two auditorium halls, three food courts with dozens of canteens, and health clinics which are well maintained.
Christ has a beautifully scenic campus that nestles diverse set of students, faculties as well as a range of flora and fauna. Amidst all the academic rush, my go-to spot is the birds’ park, a beautiful corner that echoes the constant melody of chirping birds not failing to soothe your soul and help find a momentary escape. Although the college operates on the pillars of discipline and has couple of strict rules and regulations when it comes to attendance and dress code, it is not really a big deal once you get a hang of it. The mandatory 85% (per subject) attendance can be quite intimidating, but it is totally manageable as the attendance lost engaging in all the extra and co-curricular activities can be claimed easily. The college is one of the most happening places with a myriad of fests and events happening every week. As a student you have immense opportunity to venture into and pursue your passion with multitude of clubs that range from cultural (dance, choir, theatre, art), sports, social work to MUN, entrepreneurship and B-Quiz. The college also organizes ‘Prayas’ a fest dedicated to only freshers (mandatory to participate) which lays the ground for all the budding corporate minds and nudges the entrepreneurial instincts out of every student.Read Full Review
This is one thing where Bangalore colleges stand out. A campus of nearly 80 acres is unimaginable in Delhi. There are four colleges in the Kengeri campus and all departments have their personal buildings. School of business and management had a library hall, 2 computer labs, a discussion room, and a student area to chill and have fun with friends. The campus has two auditoriums, and one of them is an open auditorium. The open auditorium has a seating capacity of over 2000 people. Open spaces of the University need a special mention. From various eateries to four cafeteria's one can manage everything inside the campus. The whole campus is Wi-Fi enabled, and residence halls and college buildings are ICT enabled. The surrounding is serene, and sporting facilities are again something to admire for.
South will always be south, and knowing a bit of local language always helps. Although no faculty and student will ever speak in Hindi or local language, knowing Kannada is beneficial. It was lovely to spend evenings in the quadrangle tables of the canteen and enjoying the lake view. More than anything, MBA is quite hectic, and after a point it does become boring. It wasn't the same with all, but I would still rate my life in Delhi better than that of Bangalore.Read Full Review
