Admission secured, many students go on North Campus sightseeing
Though the admission process for the second cut-off list is yet to end, aspirants and their parents have started flocking to various prestigious colleges of Delhi University for a "tour of North Campus".
While many aspirants are running from pillar to post for last minute admissions, there are other successful candidates for whom the race has ended and are taking one stroll through the campus, before they return to the University as students in August.
On Monday, after a hectic day, many students were seen walking in droves, visiting several North Campus colleges. Roaming outside the famous Hindu College, Rohan and Harshita say they cannot wait for the new session to start.
"We got admission in Hindu College. Now, we have just come here to explore the streets and the food joints everybody talks about. We are getting good vibes about the campus life and cannot wait to start college here," says the duo, who had secured admission on Saturday.
In addition to students gathering outside colleges, many paying guest (PG) agents have also been circling the Campus looking for business. Many students left with beaming faces, only to be met by a sea of PG agents armed with their business cards.
While some students obliged and consider their offer, many politely took the cards only to dump them a few metres ahead. "It is sometimes a waste of time and money giving them cards. If they want to dump the cards, then they should not have taken them in the first place," says a PG agent.
After days of heartbreak, there were many aspirants who secured a seat in their favourite college.
Saumya, one such student who finally got into Miranda House, says: "I am glad I got admission in Maths (Hons) at Miranda House. It was my dream to do graduation from North Campus."
Another student Ishita was happy that she got the course of her choice said: "Daulat Ram (College) has a good Psychology course and I wanted to pursue this course only. I cannot even explain how happy I am to be a part of this college."
