This college is already well known for it's reputation. The college atmosphere is more serious compared to IIT since greater number of Masters and PhD students. I think I don't need to say anything about academic part. The food is great, better than all IIT. You can choose your mess based on the region of India you come from. Hostels are decent. Campus is great.
