The Location: College Square, Cuttack. It’s a short walk from the main Cuttack station. Ask anyone and they will direct you.
The Campus: Huge. It takes ten mins to reach the Commerce block from the main gate. The buildings are more than a 100 years old, and are fine displays of Colonial era architechture. Surrounded by a plethora of bookshops.
The Faculty: They obviously love their state because they hardly ever speak in English.
The Infrastructure: We live in constant fear that the auditorium and the classrooms in the Arts block may give way any moment. What more can you expect from a building set up way back in 1876? The only saving grace is the Commerce block, which has a huge playground, a gym, four hostels and two big but ill maintained libraries.
The Crowd: Pucca Oriya with Mumbaiya attitudes. The verns (and there are one too many) can usually be found in the libraries or the newly opened Student Information Bureau.
The Canteen: The canteenwallah is popular among the fairer sex for his dashing looks. Students regularly crib about the lack of space and while the menu is nothing to write JAM about either, the food is good and affordable.
The Hangouts: Khana Khazana – popular among for vegetarians and couples, Cuttack Sweets Stall – for sweet tooths, Samrat Hall – for films. There’s also a number of trees to relax under.
The X-tra currics: Aside from the annual dramas, there are the elocution and debate competitions. The planning forum and SIB hold a number of uninspiring seminars on career planning.
Breaking News: The college will shortly be converted into an unitary University under the name of Ravenshaw Collegiate University. The UGC has declared it ”a centre with potential for excellence” and so it will receive a whopping Rs. 2 crore grant.
