And of course, it’s got nothing to do with studies. We are not liable for the list — blame the crowd-sourced comments!
SRCC: Among the other 100%-ers, you would not need to wallow in self-pity. You will meet others from the mythical land of 100-marks-in-English-and-Mathematics-and-Business Studies. So what if three other students could have passed in those marks?
HINDU: The college has that ONE virgin tree which is worshipped EVERY Valentine’s Day and she’ll always stay that way. Period!
KMC: Anonymous sources have labelled the students of the college the big ‘puff daddies’ of DU. Goes without saying that the college boasts of great theatre (there’s no smoke without fire). But like the hen and egg debate, no one can say which came first!
IP: The heritage building has a swimming pool. Which no one uses. Ideal for the nature buff and photography freaks, with peacocks seen outside the class windows during monsoon.
VENKY: From hipsters to leads from an American sitcom, all levels of awesomeness are found at this college. The alumni pride themselves on never hanging out at the nearby girls’ colleges, courtesy the food joints at Satya Niketan!
MIRANDA: Referred to as Mirandians. Known to be the preferred dating option for the Stephanians. Or so they would have us believe.
RAMJAS: You’ll find the best beards here. They promote hairy culture with aplomb!
KNC: Boasts of a beautiful chaupal. Sarojni Nagar and Lajpat Nagar markets will be your best friends.
KHALSA: The provider of stadium-fillers. No impromptu rally is ever complete without a truckload of students from this college.
JMC: From dorky shorts with boyfriend tees to Vogue magazine cover lookalikes, JMC approves of all kinds of fashion statements. The morning assemblies and hymn-singing sessions will take you right back to your convent school days.
LSR: The fabled mascots of FabIndia, incomplete without a generous application of kohl and the patrakaar jhola. As famous for its studies as the cats to whom the cafe belongs to.
STEPHENS: As a Stephanian, your wardrobe budget would never be a problem. You will only ever have to spend on the ‘uniform’ of college sweatshirts and tees.
HANSRAJ: Famous for its Lover Point (for the uninitiated, it is right outside the canteen). And the ability to hop-skip-jump to Kamla Nagar whenever.
PS: Contrary to popular belief, not all college principals are fans of Yo Yo Honey Singh.
