The considered ‘paradise’ of Delhi University is the North Campus. Every high school student aspires to be admitted in Hansraj, Miranda House, SRCC and so on. Nevertheless as soon as the cold water like cut-offs splashes on the poor student’s dream, they are woken up to taking admission in other campuses rather than this great paradise. The reason being, the great paradise of North Campus sets unrealistic cut-offs, rarely achievable for students passing through CBSE. This brings me to another point about the much-appreciated paradise. As people from various states harbour the most of north campus, thus it fails to have the crème class of Delhi. It is right to say that the infrastructure of colleges like Hansraj, Miranda House etc is mind-blowing with fleeting experiences as that of a movie, however, the periphery of the same is not something appreciated about. Places like ‘The Ridge’ are isolated and dingy. Moreover, if North Campus doesn’t incorporate as planned structure as you will find in the DUWA building, South Campus.

The much-regarded paradise is also known for its ‘cool’ hangout spots like Hudson lane and Kamla Nagar, it’s easy to find similar cafes in Satyaniketan as well. Whereas Kamla Nagar may not necessarily be as vogue as Lajpat and Sarojani Nagar of South Delhi. It moreover lacks the student vibe rather gives a family vibe. Infrastructure, hangouts being secondary the much-admired paradise tends to gloat over the education quality, whereas if you look around in off-campus and south campus colleges, the education quality is equally good and sometimes even better. If you focus on colleges like Delhi College of Arts and Commerce, Lady Sri Ram, Venkateshwar, they are amongst the top colleges of Delhi University for their quality of education. The students are as contented with their teachers as in north campus.

Adding to this, colleges in north campus also lack the new commerce-based subjects added to B.A.programme whereas colleges like Dayal Singh, Kamala Nehru College and Gargi are full-fledged running these courses. Furthermore, the pompous show of Politics and fests is more in North Campus which may make it hard for some students to study with all the distractions. This does not apply to each and everyone but the minority should also be really taken care as taught by DU’s admission system itself.

So the student we left with a heartache of not having to get admission in ‘The Paradise’ is now as happy and pleased with her college as she would be in the much-imagined fascination of North Campus. Yes, it is agreed that North Campus would have been a glorious and fascinating space. But what the much-asked question now is-

Is North Campus over-hyped?
