When educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts.
~ Dalai lama
After the school life gets over, then begins the second beautiful phase of life, called ‘The College Life.’ Mind’s full of perplexity and disorientation enter into the colleges to seek admission for the desired campus and courses.
For every student, not only delhiites but outsiders as well, have the delhi university as the very first option for their bright and glowing career.
As it is true that, ‘There is time and place for everything in Delhi University’, from courses to food joints to places to hang out.
Let’s begin with career:
which courses do Delhi University offer?
The University offers variant courses.Each college offers different courses and every course has its own career aspects . Courses like B.Com (H), English(H),History (H) ,B. A. Programme, Political Science (H) and many more are there in every head. Sometimes due to a distinction move every third Student wants to take admission in those courses.If due to high cutoffs or any other reason they can not get admission, they tend to switch to Private Universities.They somehow don’t have the knowledge of the guide of courses offered by the university and tend to neglect the brilliant courses which offer awesome career opportunities in near future for eg Philosophy (H), Psychology (H) ,B.el.ed,BBE,BFIA Language courses and many more.
Tip: To avoid this hustle do attend workshops conducted by the University prior to the admissions to get each and every information related to cutoffs, course and colleges.
Now comes the ‘Pait pooja part’
To fulfill the so-called attendance criteria we all have to rush to the college almost everyday and can not return home with empty crying stomach.
So,all we want is good and cheap food which do not create dent in our pockets. There are several food joints in and around the North and South Campus.

Last but not least, the most fun part; Places to hangout:
Who doesn’t want to hangout with friends? Of course Everyone. When it comes to College life no one wants leave the chance to feel ‘Azaad’.When you have everything around the university, then how can you not have places to chill.

Also,Freshers should not miss out with college societies. Cultural societies play an integral role in those 3 years.They are not only a medium for unlimited fun, society fresher and farewell parties but also a great medium of exposure and showcase your talent.
So, ‘Ji Lo Apni Zindagi’ while balancing your studies and fun. Never take these years of life just for granted.
All the best!
