A COLLEGE OF GREAT REPUTE!
It wastes the students time to stand in long queues to submit clearance forms, admit card forms or even the fee. If there are appointed CRs then they should collect and submit for everyone at the window, this happens in colleges like Jesus And Mary College. But the students come back to collect their admit cards on their own. This way it saves time and students don't miss out on their classes.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Its not too expensive for upper middle class, can be afforded easily. Otherwise, there are different grants that the University provides with, with which major amount can be wavered. So, the ones who cannot afford may have to inform before hand if at all they require any such help.
Placements and job opportunities are usually better for the commerce courses as they were the ones who mostly opted for membership in the Placement Cell. They have good packages and get placed very well in highly reputed companies. The Arts courses students do not opt for Placement Cell as they majorly apply for further studies.
I qualified for the first cut-off, when they were released a day before the actual admission day on the official Delhi University website. The admission process was a cake walk. The concerned faculty members of each course sat in a room in the main building, checked the mark sheets, calculated the percentage for both- class 12th marks and cut-offs, if qualified they sent to us to the computer lab to attest the photocopy of the mark sheet. After this to a window at the backside of the building where we were given the college Prospectus after payment and then returned to the same room for filling up the form for admission. The faculty was very cordial and were present there to help at any possible juncture. After the form was filled, the faculty members checked the form and attached photocopies along with the original certificates and sent us to the college auditorium for final receipt of admission slip. It took us around 2-3 hours waiting in the auditorium for the final acceptance and to collect the receipt and the admission slip.
There is a boy's hostel in the college which is open for only non Delhi-ites. That too only after the merit list is prepared which further includes more than 80% attendance to still benefit from the hostel facilities. The hostel has a good mess and the students are usually only satisfied with the hostel facilities.
Yes, the seniors were more than helpful. Even during the Orientation or during the admission process.
The faculty of the college and particularly for BA(h) English is the best. They all work as a team and never fail to help students. They teach very well and do not hold or share any ideas that are irrelevant to the course or class. Also they never target anybody specifically and insult them unnecessarily. They are probably the most helpful, most understanding and very well qualified professors. Never did it happen that they would cancel classes and not inform. They would also share the details of the related seminars or street plays nearby, and sometimes we went with them for the same.
Campus life has been vivacious, joyful, enjoyable and extremely amazing when it comes to the fests, the seminars, the farewells, the fresher's parties, department fests, voting in the department, voting in the college, witnessing how student rallies worked, closely witnessing the LP, the laborious sports teams, the comfortable Yoga rooms above the canteen, or even the seminar hall, the amphitheatre, the lush green and well-maintained gardens, etc. Overall there was the equal number of male and female students.
Same as the Delhi University structure, internal assessment is also according to the University norms. Each paper consisting of one assignment and one test along with the attendance marks for the concerned paper. The break up is of 30-70 internal assessment and main exam accordingly.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course curriculum is voluminous given the fact that it is in a semester system. It gets very laborious and many a time doesn't leave much time to cover everything for the exam. It also gets a little cumbersome while the exam time is approaching yet the professors taking classes after classes to finish the course, leaving less time for self-study.
No, not that I have heard of. There is definitely a Placement Cell, which is headed over by a professor and a team of students.
The events celebrated are as follows: 1. Saraswati Puja on Vasant Panchami, followed by hawan in the boy's hostel. 2. College Fests. Usually end of February. 3. Department Fest. Around the college fest, may stretch over to March. 4. Competitions that are held all around the year, with seminar and workshops. 5. Farewells 6. Freshers Party
