Out of the two choices that I had between Chandigarh University and RBU, I chose Rayat Bahra University and I still don’t know why? There’s nothing about that distinguishes it from the other private universities. Still, if I have to choose a thing, I will choose faculties because they were better than most universities in Punjab have. The university played defensively as the portions were vast but they choose just to brush up on most of the topics and bath with only the important topics. So, shortcuts in a professional course like BBA never works and it showed up during the placements when hardly any placements happened. To take it a step further, we were trained but not trained with the skills that requires the most during interviews and that is communicating. Punjab is anyways weak in education and I am sorry to bother all with such statement but it is what it is. So, it was bits and pieces and I will use both the words loosely because the university was good with some part and equally bad with some. So, if one expects leaps and bounds at RBU, then sorry, it’s not that pace to be honest.
The worst part of academics here was that it never ignited a spark in us because some topics were taught so brilliantly and on some the faculties were like no need as this part hardly counts. The academics here were not imposing and that was in a way beauty because we had all the time in the world to do things that we had interest in. So, the game changing moment in academic never came as it went with one flow and continued the same semester after semester. One thing though which I would like to add is that academics at RBU may be bits and pieces but the academics here made me confident.
We are talking about the best personalities as the faculties here had a personnel, mojo and charm of their own. While talking about them let me clear that we are talking about the ones who have dual PhD and over 100 research papers published. So, the university as a whole may be bits and pieces but the question of them being bits and pieces, I will discard any day. The only problem them was that they were brilliant in the classes as they would joke around keep the atmosphere light and sound but off they go and it’s hard to get some juice out of them. So, the reason why students maintained the attendance was the faculties if not anything else.
When I saw Rayat Bahra University placements details on their website that students are placed in this and that and with a package of this and that, I have been itching myself to go and check at the university. We were not offered any placements and yet were trained and made to appear for just a couple of interviews whose results never came. I mean we were told that they couldn’t our profiles interesting or worthy enough to work with but still they should have at least done some bit to sneak a chance of placements. Well, they were simply none at least during my batch.
There were two boy’s hostels and each hostel had four to five blocks which could accommodate around 1000 students each. The hostel ran at around 60% capacity then but I am sure many new would have come up now because the university may not have grown in stature but since the departments have been increased the number of students too would have been increased. There wouldn’t be doubt in anybody’s head that hostel of RBU needs any changes because they were just one thing and that is World Class.
Rayat Bahra University campus area is huge because a land of 25 acres many not be the biggest when it comes to facilities I can think of no other college or university. I mean CU and LPU are bigger and better but RBU at least in infrastructure have matched them in terms of facilities. The library was made accessible to hostel students 24*7 and mind you the library doesn’t just have the academic books but a hell lot of interesting and amazing non-academic books too. Being a Punjabi, we just haunt for food and there were plenty of options for it at the campus and that at rates which were easy on pocket. Other facilities that need mention are ATM facilities, auditorium, and salon among many others.
The academics here were a decent bullet to go as there were no body blows but fist pumping all the way. Yes, but there’s no rest if by chance you have involved yourself with other activities at the campus. Every single event at the campus is celebrated like a festival and the crowd engagement is always high at the campus. Punjabi’s love over the top celebrations and if one wants to see what is over the top for people of Punjab, they should be a part of campus fest once.
Chandigarh is the best place to study in North India after Delhi. The Universities in Chandigarh, like Chandigarh University, Chitkara University, Punjab University, and Goswami Ganesh Dutta Sanatan Dharma College, are highly rated Universities and Colleges. RBU came out of nowhere as the University was near my place, and I saw the completion of the University from my eyes while it was getting built. I jokingly used to tell my family and friends that I would be studying there, and as Jinx happen... Read Full Review
I joined 'RBU' the year it was incepted. Chandigarh has way too many Colleges but all with a certain criterion as Chandigarh has decided to compete with Delhi. Chandigarh University and 'RBU' were the only two Universities where I could have had admissions. RBU because it was close to my home, my parents asked me to go there. The University had twenty courses then as rest all were in planning and today, they offer nearly 100 courses. BBA was more out of seeing everybody doing something because s... Read Full Review
