Seshadripuram College was average in all sense as the city that has colleges like St. Joseph, Christ University, and the Kristu Jayanti, Seshadripuram weighs down as the college hardly has anything special to offer. The college has balanced everything but haven’t outshined in anything and that’s make it an average college. All the top colleges or the university play their best card but unfortunately Seshadripuram didn’t have that sword. It does make a difference having one USP because otherwise, there’s no choice but you will always be under the shadow of being called an average. I think I have used the term average enough and therefore chucking that term for the rest of my review. I am rubbing out the placement part in overall because I would not like to share the details here as they were challenging. The residence halls as most colleges in Bangalore as halls instead of hostels. So, the baggage and immigration of campus life lied on the students as students were at least given a free hand in that. So, the kids here arrived with a lot of hope but most of them took the flight back empty handed.
Tumultuous time with academics because firstly the attendance were not compulsory. Everything was so unpredictable here that, I actually felt for academics and the Bangalore University too. With a very heart I have to say this that without naming I am saying that two of the semesters were quite similar. Just the books changed but the content inside them was more or less similar. So, at least in that I won’t be blaming the college but the Bangalore University because the college was affiliated to them. The college people had the knack of ignoring topics saying this isn’t essential and that it won’t come in exams. However, opposite happened many times.
Faculties were like they had no choice. It were like the airports, the flights, or none of the things were there in their control and yet they had to board an airplane in which they have to reach the class and tell the students that HOD has decided that lectures are upheld for a day or two. They tried their best to give students the visas but their hands were tied or rather and I am actually feeling sorry because while writing for them, I am having a laugh about them.
The placement cell called Vikasa did their bit in getting the students placed. 2015 was the year when things started changing as the job scenario was at its peak and yet the college managed just to place 50-60% of the students. The average packaged offered to BBA students was around 3 LPA. The lowest offered were around 2.1 LPA and highest was of 8 lakhs. So, placements weren’t that good but still for those who managed to get are doing well as I am in touch with some of them and even after investing two years in PGDM, we all are mostly on the same page.
If hostels or the halls of residence are supposed to be of a kind that can make you feel at home then they weren’t close to it. The residence halls buildings were right next our lecture halls so for the students who were staying at those halls, life became easy because I had to invest more than an hour travelling to the college. The accommodation cost was reasonable as there were various kinds of rooms and one can choose from single to triple seater rooms. Even there were rooms with shared bathrooms and common bathrooms, so depending on what your pocket allows, you can choose the rooms accordingly.
The auditorium of the campus was amazing as the two-floor building had the 1st floor for practice where there were few green rooms. The fully air-conditioned seminar halls were small but were one of the finest going around. While addressing the entire college the open-air theatre called Rangamandira was used. It was mostly busy as every now and then, we used to have some or the other meetings. There are two canteens at the campus and both of them were close to the main gate. The canteens were good as the quadrangle canteen didn’t have the seating facilities but in college life it’s better to stand and eat along your friends. We used to form a group and made sure that we have our evening feast at the college canteens.
The college boasts a lot of events as Rangamandira and the auditorium were always buzzing. I won’t say I had the best of time but those who sincerely put efforts and participated in college events had a lot of fun. I could tell it by the happiness of their eyes that they were never in danger because students participating in college activities had some added advantages when it came to attendance or some marks in the internals.
