THE SCHOOL OF SUNSET
Politics of the administrative staff was really disheartening. Also, the student council elections when a lot of conundrum is seen disturbs the tranquil routine.
My Alma mater an evening college has a lot to give. Freedom to learn with is so rare in the modern academic bound scenario. Being in evening college .it never meant daily drudgery or a routine that colleges are but indeed refresh of mind. Teachers are amazing. They are really approachable humble and like friends. And because it is a Delhi University college with amazing NAAC credits don't worry about the academics
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Yes, the fee structure is very reasonable. Only expenses are travel and food if you have to stay far away from your college. Hostel facility in du is rare and if it is on campus availability is not assured. If one is a day scholar the fee less than 10,000 per annum
The Placement Cell is hard working . Although not all students sit for placements the ones who do get a fairly good job in their final year of college. A lot of companies that are new to the college have started coming .average package is around 2-4 lakhs but this also depends on the course and the marks the student obtained in the semester examination.Some other personality relate factors come in to ply for which the faculty as well as students work hard in rigorous training sessions.
Ofcourse a form showing marks after results has to be filled.Admission procedure is very simple . Keeping a watch on the cut off list and finding your percentage statisfying the demand is enough.once you find you just have to walk in with documents and will be helped by the student volunteers and in my case extremely humble , friendly teachers.
I was a resident of the undergraduate hostel for girls luckily which is an excellent place to stay in The food is outstanding and of a great variety. There are facilities like a study room, Computer rooms, gym tuckshop, TV rooms etc the hostel is well equipped and comfortable.
Seniors were the best part. Our seniors guided us through every step we took personal interaction with some of them taught us a lot about life.
The faculty is extremely learned the English literature department of Dyal Singh evening is one rarely seen. Teachers are not only highly accomplished people (some of them are published poets and writers) but also down to the earth mentors. The faculty is always there to help if one is keen to be helped. And some teachers by the virtue of the subject will be so good human beings and you will have them more as friends even after you graduate.
The gender ratio was good. Extracurricular activities were fair. Labs and sports need improvement. We had annual festivals which were good. Such an event keeps happening throughout the university for the eg litfest retrospect of the English literature department.
The exam structure is same for all the colleges of the University. one of the semester examinations starts is in nov- December and the second-semester examination is in the month of May. Usually, these semester examination Is of a maximum 100 marks of which 75 is external and the rest 25 marks are internal assessment and attendance. 20 marks are for internal assessment for which the students write tests which are checked by college teachers or other forms of assessment like projects presentation and assignments(written) and the rest 5 marks is for the attendance
