What is it about college that distinguishes it from other educational opportunities?

The college experience—the one you fantasise about while sifting through countless applications and calculating exam dates—isn't solely based on the prospect of being immersed in a novel setting. It isn't even solely based on a university curriculum's structure. So yes, even though it is vastly different from what you may have experienced in high school, much more influences your overall collegiate experience.

After identifying the importance of having good professors, there are some AICTE norms for assistant professor;

Students are the country's future, and seeing how important their quality of education is, professors who are inspiring, well-spoken, and well-rehearsed in their field of study are hired.
