Want to go in a girls college? Say a BIG Yes! Because No more daily struggle of putting together an outfit, being judged for those PJs and  slippers. In conversation with a student of Indraprastha College for Women, ”Is dating one aspect where co-ed girls might socre over you?” She replied, “ Don’t have we have DU Fests & North campus for that matter. We have tinder also. LOL”

Women’s colleges have their own beauty & charm. You get abundant opportunities to explore and grow. In an All Women’s college, girls do it all from making rangolis to shifting heavy desks and organizing the amazing annual fests… The fests really say it all ! Since women’s colleges are usually presumed to be less popular & boring, we bring to you some of the most famous women’s colleges. They are peppy and full of fun & frolic, opposed to the usual presumption.

Delhi University which has more  than 22,000  students with a ratio of female to male as  49:51, currently has 22 Women’s colleges affiliated to it offering programs across streams, including Humanities, Engineering, Medical, and Commerce among others.
