Overall this college is a good choice.

Tips: Before joining one should check how financially strong they are and also depends on one's area of interest and aim in their life. But on overall basis it is the best college. People nearby are mostly Indians and especially from Telugu states hence it will be good choice for women if they are having any safety concerns.
