LSR- THE SPACE FOR EMPOWERMENT
LSR changed me in a beautiful way, it empowered me to have a vision for my life and my surroundings.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The average fees for different courses range from 15k to 20k per year, the fee structure for international students is different. Being a government college, the college fees isn't the major concern, accommodation and travel are. If one is a local, one may use the metro or buses, as the college is well connected to the public transport system. An outsider can get a paying guest accommodation, at a walking distance, as per one's own budget, starting from about 10k.
LSR has an active placement cell which keeps the students updated about the opportunities. The placement cell appoints a representative from every department providing a link to all departments and their needs. I interned with Teach For India in my second year, which is a part of Teach For All network, a group of independent organizations aiming to bring educational equality in the world. I applied through the mail forwarded by the placement cell.
The first step towards LSR admissions is the online DU registration, followed by the release of cutoffs by different colleges for different courses. The admissions can be confirmed once the cut off is met. I got in through the third cut off for B.A.(H) English, securing 96% in my XII. Being a prestigious institution the cutoffs released by LSR tend to be on the higher side in comparison to the other colleges in DU. lsr.edu.in/images/Admission-Schedule-June2019.jpg
LSR has the names of successful and strong women in its alumni community, who have been a role model of empowerment and change for the entire country as well as the world. Aung San Suu Kyi, Gita Gopinath, Nidhi Razdan, Maneka Gandhi, Vinita Bali are only some of the names from the list, LSR women have been excelling in arts, politics, business, and administration. The senior students can be reached through the Ex-students of LSR community, details of which can be found on the site.
Every department in LSR has a range of professors from different age groups creating the perfect blend of a traditional and contemporary teaching environment. The professors are experienced and updated, and encourage discussions and interactions in the classroom. Students get a chance to build a more comfortable and personal relationship with the professors in the tutorial classes. My experience of the classroom lectures in LSR broadened my vision and exposed me to the deeper and more productive aspects of my personality.
Lady Shri Ram College for women as the name suggests is an all women zone, with a beautiful campus with all the facilities like a great cafeteria, a Nescafe coffee shop, a stationery shop, a bookstore and a mother dairy outlet for soothing summers.
