I have only positive memories about my college. The faculty was very supportive and helped me during the formative years in college. The admin staff and the principal(he was a Gandhian) used to really care about us.
The course curriculum was designed by Delhi University. Being an Honours student, we had to study Maths as the main subject with 10 Maths papers in total to be cleared over 3 years. There were subsidiaries like Physics and Chemistry (1 papers and 1 practical each subject for the first 2 years).
No, at that time, there was no internship. But nowadays, I think that some college are offering internship but they must be engineering colleges. During those days, the concept of internship had still not come.
BSC is a well respected course. Doing this course has definitely helped me in my chosen career of Computing. Some subjects we had studied during our 3 years in the college like Linear Programming and Statistics helped me to develop a logical mind.
The major event in any college are the elections and it used to be time consuming affair. Many weeks were wasted and we enjoyed lots of holidays just to gear up for the elections. Apart from that, we had the customary college festival which was attended in large numbers,
During those days, it was very inexpensive. I remember that the entire fees for 1 year was just under Rs. 1000 per year. We also had the bus pass facility for Rs. 12.50/ month which was valid on all DTC and private buses too.
I did not avail any loan facility. But I came to know later that if you were one among the toppers, you could avail for scholarship under which your college fees could be waived off, but there were no such students in my batch.
The new building had brand new labs with modern facilities. We were issued the instruments to be used at the beginning of the academic year. We were supposed to keep those in our custody in our college lockers. At the end of the year, we were supposed to return it back failing which fine would be levied on us. We had a big ground in the new college campus where we played cricket and football.
When I joined Moti Lal Nehru College, the infrastructure was quite poor, since we were at a rented building in South Moti Bagh(1986-1988). The classes were quite crowded, but in 1988, we shifted to the new building near Ram Lal College near South Campus which had all the modern facilities in classrooms and labs.
We had strong alumni network and used to bond during college festivals and other events. In case of any issues, we could approach the seniors and get them resolved. Ragging during those days was non-existent and on the first day, the seniors only asked our name and course taken.
There were 10 papers in Maths - 2 in the first year, 3 in the second year and 5 in the last year. Apart from Maths, we had to clear Physics and Chemistry papers with practicals for the first 2 years. Exams were held in the month of March-April and results declared a month later.
During those days, admission process was very easy unlike nowadays. I took all my certificates and the fees to be paid. After reaching there, I filled out the form - (it was manual in those days), submitted my certificates and the fees at the counter.The entire process took less than half an hour.
The faculty was quite qualified and did their job well. We had a doubt clearance session each week where we could clear the doubts faced by us. The faculty was quite approachable and friendly and guided us well.
The placements are good but not for every program like they do offer to sit in the placements for every course students but the companies which come for recruitment are mainly looking for students from commerce background. I am not saying that people from other courses do not get placed at all but if you're from a commerce background there is a high chance for you to get placed.
Lots of placement comes in the 3rd or final year of college. A lot of students get placement and some don't. Some companies give the highest packages but some don't. Many give 1.2lacs per year package as they are hiring Freshers but later on salaries can be increased according to your performance but mostly commerce and art sides get more placements
I have heard that the placement opportunities are great here and the candidates are offered 6 digit salaries in the first year of being a graduate itself. Placement opportunities are given to the students in their final year and after a round of selection and interviews, the deserving candidates are selected.
Our college doesn't provide placement for undergraduates but excellent placements are offered for post-graduate. DU itself is a very good and renowned University hence its fame helos the students to get good placements My aim after completing my undergraduate is to do post-graduation
The placement cell of the college is very much active. The placement package is quite good. But it depends much on the qualification of the candidate that how's s/he has performed. Otherwise, college placement is all good as the reputation enjoyed by the college is attentive. Many alma matters are very much famous, which make internship companies and placement companies fall for Hansraj college. So in literal terms, college placement is no less than others. ( As per many seniors, the average package goes like 3-4 lakh per annum to 7 -9 lakhs per annum). It may rise high, depending on the qualification of student and level of the company.
LSR has an active Placement Cell, the highlight of the college. It brings internship opportunities and job offers for its students. It is headed by 5 coordinators, 2 sub-coordinators, a Research & Training Head and a Treasurer, who are supported by 31 department representatives, 25 members and 11 core team members. LSR brings in internship opportunities for the first, second and third-year students including summer internship programs for the second and third years. Bank of America, HUL, Puma and Citibank have recruited interns. In the academic year 2019-20, 100 companies visited the campus to offer jobs to students of which 110 were recruited. Industry giants like McKinsey & Company, Bain & Company, LEK Consulting, Accenture, Gartner, FTI Consulting, Citibank and EY Parthenon were invited. Despite the economic slump due to COVID-19, the highest package offered was INR 30 LPA and the average package was INR 9.4 LPA.
The placement of the college is very good from the 2nd semester you become eligible for campus placement. There are 20-30 companies who visited for the interview and the lowest package is 5-6 lakhs and the maximum package is 25-30 lakhs. There are 80% of the students got their placement in their college time and earn many more from that. I want to go for civil services after my graduation.
Placements are good but for students of commerce, mathematics or computer sciences. But for my course that is botany there are not good job offers atleast for the graduate students. Mostly student prefers to undergo masters after graduation. But if you want a job you can get that through placement cell but they dont pay well. Deloitte, Accenture, TCS, etc many renowned companies as well as startup companies offer jobs.
It is the only College in Delhi University which provide physical and health education. Only UGC recognised College to provide bsc in physical education. It is affordable for all types of students as it's a govt College and tuition fee is not too much.
At that time I was facing some health issues as this college is nearer to me comparatively to other so I opted for it. Also the college is surrounded by lots of plants and trees so you feel absolutely fresh all the time. Brings positivity.
