GARGI COLLEGE : A REVIEW
Gargi college has a great canteen that attracts students from the nearby colleges as well. We have a good WiFi network throughout the college. The washrooms are clean. There are a number of fields, parks and open spaces for lounging in the sun.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The fee structure is feasible for the annual fee is mere 8500 per year. For economically backward classes, there's a considerable compensation when it comes to the fee payment. Not only, students can also apply for scholarships.
The placement and job opportunities are remarkable to say the least,especially when it comes to the department of commerce. Quite a number of famous companies turn up and based on the academic performance of the students, they select them for an interview session.
After its cut off list was out, i applied to the college for admission. We were supposed to fill the application forms and provide our marksheets of tenth and twelfth along with the migration certificate (if need be) and a character certificate.
My college does not provide any hostel facility unlike the other colleges of Delhi University. This is owing to the fact that there's a shortage of space. Besides, the location of the college acts as a hindrance in expanding the infrastructure.
The seniors are very helpful and approachable. As for the alumni network, we observed that its extremely strong for its based on cordial relations and a willingness to help each other grow. So they are available for each other as well as their juniors.
The faculty of my college, be it of any department, are always available to help the students. They are well educated and knowledgeable, hence, equipped fully to quench the thirst of knowledge amongst the students.
There is a plethora of opportunities for students who want to take part in extracurricular activities, be it badminton, cricket, volleyball, football, etc. As for the labs, Gargi college is well equipped with three humongous computer labs. We also have chemistry, biology and physics labs.
The exam structure follows the same pattern that we had in schools with a bit of change. While we did not have to submit assignments in schools and neither did we have an exam of 75 marks, in college, they expect an assignment and based on it, the internal assessment is made. This is followed by an exam of 75 marks.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course curriculum is extensive and rich enough to induce an idea of understanding and curiosity among the young minds of this generation. There are quite a number of educational trips followed by seminars and workshops(organised by the college)that keep the students engaged and interested.
Yes, it does. Though I did not participate in any of the internships provided by my college. I am well acquainted with the basic framework of the internships as my friends took part in it. Most of the internships begin during the summer vacation.
There are quite a number of events celebrated in my college. In fact, Gargi's annual fest, Reverie, is considered to be one of the best fests of Delhi University. Apart from Reverie, we also have the Diwali Mela, department fests, seminars, etc.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
There's a good, in fact one of the best scholarships provided by my college. But then again it entirely depends on your economic status. If a student is economically backward, she can avail the scholarship where they have to pay a meagre amount in the name of fee or if the situation demands, no fee at all.
