Delhi University (DU) is all set to reopen on July 21, with the new session bringing in thousands of freshers to the campus.

DU has got it all— popular hangout zones, libraries and shopping centers. But what makes it even better are some of the in-house initiatives that are being run inside the Campus for the students to get informed and participate in issues that matter.

HT City gives you a glimpse.

DU beat:
An independent newspaper founded in 2007 by some DU students, DU beat features, news and events happening in the campus. It comes free of cost and is available in 15 colleges as of now.

All those itching to try their writing skills can also submit their articles for publication. And there is more for the students in the form of weekly columns. Popular columnists such as Sex Amma gives gyan to all those suffering from love-life tensions.

Radio Station:
For all the wannabe radio jockeys, believe it or not, DU has its own Radio station, called DU 90.4 FM, this community radio station is located in North Campus and can be heard within a radius of 10 kilometers.

The station plays programmes related to education, as well as songs and phone-in counselling. Students are also given a chance to show their talent, as they get to be the Radio jockeys.

News Channel:
The university is also set to get its very own TV channel, called the Delhi University Television Network (DUTN), the channel will start as an Internet based TV network and will be available in 10 colleges in North Campus.

Professor AK Bakhshi, Director, Institute of Lifelong Learning, from where the channel will be broadcast says, “It’ll be like what you see in US, which is known as Students Television Network, where all universities are connected.”
