Delhi University is one of the most desirable institutes where so many students want to take admission but very few get this opportunity due to its high cut-offs and limited seats. More than 100 colleges come under Delhi University and each one has something unique about itself, some are famous for studies, some for politics, some for canteen and all, but the thing common between them is that you will be getting a lot of exposure and fun in all. So let us take a look at what are things you can enjoy being a part of Delhi University Colleges.
Things that you will love being a part of Delhi University Colleges
1. Struggle for 5 marks of attendance
This system of 5 marks for attendance is going on for years and will continue till this University’s existence. But it is the only source of motivation we have to attend college. Let me explain about this for those who are not from Delhi University- if you have attendance between 95-100% in a particular subject then your 5 marks are confirmed in 25 marks of internal assessment. As your attendance decreases from this set standard, your marks will also decrease. Students hate this system but in the end, as we have described earlier it is the only source of motivation we have.
2. Societies and their work
Being a part of different College Societies is very good as we can get a lot of exposure but grunt work they want us to do from them is completely pathetic getting likes on their Facebook page, increasing their Instagram follower, etc. Some college societies are really good, they can help us in growing and expanding our network in the college, we can connect with our seniors, teachers, etc through them.
3. College Elections
How can we forget about this major highlight of Delhi University when the real feel of being a Delhi University college student come. The handshaking of candidates at the college gates, their sweet and humble behaviors for our votes, free snacks at the canteen is the real fun. The sounds of different slogans and ballot numbers while taking lectures is one of the funniest and unique things a student can enjoy.
4. Class-Bunks to roam around
This is the common activity that we find in all college students (except some toppers) to bunk classes and roam around in nearby markets and outlets. Satyaniketan and Kamla Nagar are 2 popular markets that are like hub spots for most South and North Campus students.
5. Canteen session between lecture break
Canteens are fully crowded and it’s very difficult to search seats for yourself and your groups and chai samosa between lecture breaks have a different vibe for all students.
6. Assignments dead-lines
There are so many things in Delhi University Colleges that depend on our moods like going to college, attending lectures, etc. but the one thing that we can’t control is assignments dead-lines. This is a culture in all Delhi University colleges that all the assignments of the class are just photo-copies of each other. Only one or two students from the class take this initiative to complete the assignment and all the other students just copy-paste their work in their own hand-writing.
7. Last Night Study
The last night study has a different kind of feel for all Delhi University students, cramming guides (10-years) to get passing marks and then asking your friend how much they have covered is actually a perfect college thing one can experience.
8. The Fests
This article can not be completed without mentioning about the fest of Delhi University. The toughest decision between girls is deciding their wardrobe for fests. The fest season generally starts by the end of January and continues till March. Dancing with your group and celebrating the joy is the super amazing any college student can have.
9. Planning for an Out-Station trip
This is a kind of discussion that takes place between every group in 1st semester and continues till last semester, lucky are those who are able to make this plan successful.
If you have come this far while reading this article, let me tell you are gonna miss all the above mentioned things once you are out of college. Let’s come to last thing that is farewell, this day is full of emotions when even craziest students gets emotional. As some are leaving to different cities for further studies and some are going to start their life in corporates. In this era of Social Media where we can connect so easily even after leaving college, still each student gets emotional on their fare well day.
Well this was it, how is life at Delhi University Colleges, if we have missed something please mention that in comments we will definitely add that and if you are going to be a part of Delhi University than all the best for your new chapter of life.
