In the library, you can collect more books. Classrooms are super. The hostel has good infrastructure, and it has a well-defined structure. It is clean. The canteen is good, and the mess is also good. Sports and games are good, and it conducts sports day for a month. The college provides good medical facilities in college.
Faculty: Teachers in college are not like teachers, they are like friends. They have a lot of knowledge, and they deliver their knowledge to the students. Their teaching quality is excellent. The course curriculum is relevant, and it makes the students industry-ready.
GGU Bilaspur :- You have to be on your own here, don't expect anything from the teachers. Students from branches other than cse can only hope for cracking the gate somehow and go for higher education. The student crowd here is not very good, the seniors are no better. Make your connections with other students if you want to achieve something.
