Delhi University has always been home to many students through decades. It is known for its lively and fun-filled environment, which attracts students from not only other states but other countries as well. While for some students the city has a lot to offer, for some, it’s hard to adapt to the city’s ways, weather and fast pace.
“DU is the hub of education in India, and I would love to study here. I was only a bit worried about security, but I believe if we stick to our hostel deadlines and stay alert, it won’t cause us trouble,” says an aspirant from Meghalaya. Here’s what other students and aspirants had to say.
