What do Students Say About the College?

Even though Hindu provides you with the academic space to learn and grow, it can be much
better. Co-curricular activities often end up taking precedence over academics here. Hindu
does provide you with a very diverse crowd to mingle with, so you have people from different sections of society all coming together to study at the same place. Thus, it provides students with a lot of exposure. You learn how to deal with all sorts of people. In terms of sports facilities, although some facilities do exist, I think the college could do a lot better.
