SOLDU, New Delhi
A STUDENT'S POINT OF VIEW
There are some pros about the college but when you go to the negative aspects there's a list. Looking at the positive things we can say that the fee structure is feasible anybody can avail the course comfortably from this college. The negative aspects are that you will always have to be aware of the events and the activities taking place in the college will not notify you personally it is up to you whet you checked the website or not,you will have to run to the college for the smallest of concerns as there is nobody who will pickup the call, the revaluation process is cumbersome and many more.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee structure is feasible. Total for three years you will have to pay around Rs.10000.Which should be divided into three parts such as Rs 3000-4000 every year. Other than this you need not pay any extra money for anything in the college.
Don't expect too much from the college for jobs or placements. Though the college has started its own placement cell last year from 2018. There is not much opportunity to be seen. The highest package the college was offering was 2.90 lakhs p.a by the Dalmia group. In conclusion, I would like to say that it depends upon you that how much talent you have.
The college has no hostel facility. But if you are willing to stay in a hostel or pg around or near the college you can get a very good deal as there are a number of hostels and PGs near the college. The cost depends on the type of place you choose to stay in.A minimum of Rs.3000 per month for the stay and the same for the food and the total will be around 6000+1500 for personal expense for an average stay.
You can get in touch with alumni of the college if you personally know somebody graduating from college. The college does have an alumni section on the website. You can ask people you know about the experiences and opportunities they got after graduating.
The college faculty is not so helpful when it comes to assisting students as you will not be able to reach them at times. They will certainly help you in some cases but not consistently as and when required.
There are no extracurricular activities taking place in the college. There is nothing such as labs.No sports event. However, there is a stadium near the college you can play there. The college does have a canteen inside the college. The course structure of the college is as such that there is no need for labs and extracurricular activities.

The course is quite popular it gives you fundamentals of the various subjects which you will need later in your life.

Events such as International yoga day Gandhi Saptah are given much importance in the college. Tree plantation also happens in college. There is no such thing as a college fest. Students dreaming about enjoying the college fests should never come to this college. Being an open college they don't give much importance to these events.
