Studying in jamia millia Islamia is totally a different experience to cherished. This central university is a hub of variant courses and people. It has very well maintained campus and separate departments for each course joined with personal cafeteria and department library. I am personally very much fond of its architecture, canteens and gardens. Teaching and administration staff are very Co-operative and helpful while some exceptions does exist. Jamia works very effectively according to their rules and this sometimes leads to tedious schedule for students to cope up accordingly. However, colleagues and teachers are definitely a plus point. I have just completed my previous year and looking forward to the new experiences I might have.
