BITS really rocks with its facilities provided to the students I never got to know when 4 years of my study passed and I was ready to get such an unexpected and handsome placement offer.

College is not owning its personal hostel which seemed like a problem at first look but later authorities provided me with details of different hostels under the tie-up with the college which made it easy for me so finally I liked my college.
