There are a lot of other factors that you should consider to take this decision. At the beginning of your career these are the five major dimensions you need to take into account for a job:
1. Brand name of the Organization
2. The New Hire Orientation Program in the Organization
3. Job profile and Learning Opportunities
4. Immediate Boss
5. Salary (what % hike are they offering after months)
I know of some people who initially started their career at a very low salary but the kind of experience they got from those organizations was so profound that they could ask for up to 300% of their CTCs in the next job.
My advice to you would be to do some research to find out the other aspects of the job you are being offered. As you are in the final semester, you can always see if there are some other opportunities where you can get a better mix.
All the Best!

You are getting good opportunity. Today you required to get an experience . Don't think your initial job on the part of Salary but think from the point of view of Experience. If you are getting good exposure to learn practical HR there; you should join there.
Because there is no guarantee, that you will get same opportunity again; though you may get higher salary.
Your salary will get increased in future but You cannot be sure you will get same profile or exposure in future.
See, not your salary of today but your exposure in this filed will bring you good opportunity in your future career.

How the work matches your educational and professional qualifications is important.The work you do and your qualifications should be interlinked.
Go ahead and join the company if it affords growth,satisfaction and enhances your professional skill.
Considering that some employees have stuck around in same company for 9 years,most probably work environment may be suitable for employees.
