Ankita Chander, Sri Venkateswara College
The thought of interacting with new people, making new friends and honing my skills in Venky makes my day. Oh, did I forget to mention dressing up and accessorising? Besides preparing for college in the last two months, sharing my stories with you has been a delightful experience. But this is not the end. We will be regularly updating you about the latest in college.
Gargi, GGSIP university
My counselling date for the BTech programme at GGSIP University has been announced. I am not sure which college I will be allotted, but I know I am going to pursue engineering. As a campus journo, sharing everything I have gone through during entrance exams, results, disappointments and triumphs and expressing my worries and joys via a leading national daily was a grea experience.
Siddhi Goel, Hans Raj college
College is a bundle of surprises. My first day unfolded in a very unexpected way. I couldn’t meet my professors, seniors and wasn’t able to break the ice with my classmates either. But as the week progressed, I began to like Hans Raj. Being a campus journalist makes me feel like a celebrity already! Many people recognise me and say that they read our articles, which is touching. I have learnt a lot and I am sure it will help me become a good journalist.
Anam Kazmi, Miranda House
My first day at Miranda was nothing short of a revelation. The moment I stepped on the campus, I felt a sense of belonging, like I was already a part of it. I enjoyed exploring every nook and cranny of my college — the classrooms, verandahs, labs, office and canteen. I am now going to miss writing these articles, all the brainstorming, typing and unsuccessful efforts to meet the deadline and seeing my photo in the newspaper every Wednesday.
Riti Wig, Gargi College
DU is not just about flashy cars and fancily-dressed youth but more about finding like-minded people, starting afresh and discovering yourself in the crowd. My first week was all about applying and auditioning to various societies. Being a campus journalist has been more than wonderful. I found five new friends, got readers to know me better and spread whatever little messages I could. Thank you, all of you for appreciating our work.
Shreya Mudgil, Bharati College
The best part about my college is the teachers who are friendly and welcoming. The girls are a delight to talk to and the seniors are kind and extremely helpful. In just a week, I have made some really great friends, and the one who stands out is Neha for her jovial and helpful nature. Being an HT Education campus journalist has been a fascinating journey. It feels wonderful when people recognise me for my articles. I thank HT Education for this golden opportunity.
