It provides numerous activities like sports field, swimming pool, shooting area, yoga centre, gym, Arcadia etc. The classrooms are big enough to fit approximately 50-60 students. Every block has its own shop for photocopies and printouts which a necessary part of a students life. You can find energy bars and sports drink vending machine at the entrance of the block. There are lots of canteens and the H block along with the hostels is a food court you get Normal canteen/ mess food, Dominos, Subway, Popcorns & more, Mama Mia and yes Amity university has a restaurant named Wall Street inside the campus. Amity comes with many facilities inside the campus, you have Loreal Beauty Saloon (which is costly), Fruit Shop, Amul Counter, WH Smith Department Store, CCD, Teksons the book store etc. The exterior grounds are all decorated with nice flowers to freshen up the morning of every student. It does get hectic throughout the day but one glimpse and fragrance of those flowers and you’ll leave all your problems behind.
ACADEMICS AND FACULTIES
The faculties are very helpful and understanding, they do make you beg for attendance and die inside (pun intended). They’ll guide with your career on every step of the way, and encourage you to push your limits. They’d paint you the realistic picture of what have gotten yourself into and how you have to do the handwork to get out better and stronger!
As for academics, they cover each and every possible subject in the field. The course is very exhaustive. The teachers stick to the bare acts which is the most important part of life for a lawyer. The time table could be better as they either give 3 hours break or no break at all, yeah amity runs on extremes! THEY WILL NOT GIVE YOU AN OFF EVEN IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT!
Evaluation is according to the internals, assignments and PSDA (which btw never happened).
ADMINISTRATION AND FEES STRUCTURE
Fees is literally very expensive, they take approximately a lakh per semester, and increasing every semester. They do offer scholarships.
The administrative department is really nice and understanding.
Every block has its own cafeteria but the food is not all that good. There’s Arcadia in the F Block which serves amazing food and has a very nice ambiance, the plus point? You can play games while your order is being prepared. Apart from this there is a gym canteen which serves all the healthy dishes for the health conscious gym enthusiasts. And last but not the least, our very favourite H Block that has everything a foodie could wish for, from subway to dominos to Nirula’s everything right in-front of you!
STUDENT CULTURE AND ACTIVITIES
As previously mentioned there are plenty of cultural activities. You can find music, dance, drama and fashion clubs. Engage yourself in sports, there’s a 2 month sports event called ‘SANGATHAN’ and you get an OD for the classes! Excited? I know I am! Moot courts, debates and plenty of other activities while the Amity youth fest. So its safe to say there is never a dull moment in Amity.
Placements are nice, few of the students get placed in nice companies and law firms.
Best thing about my law school is it makes full efforts in giving knowledge to the students either by normal classes or guest lecture.
Worst thing about it is that the authorities are not always supportive of practical knowledge which in law is a very important thing. They would give more importance to attendance than practical knowledge and internships.
