Excited and dressed for the occasion, students were all geared up for their first day at Delhi University on Monday. The new session kick-started with the first batch of students who will be studying under the Choice Based Credit System (CBCS).

Many colleges had planned orientation activities for the new batch. The DU Vice-Chancellor Dinesh Singh visited some of the colleges including Indraprastha College for Women, ARSD College, Aryabhatta College and Ram Lal Anand College, among others.

“Seeing the students, I recall the day I came for my orientation as a DU student. That was a new beginning. For you all, too, this is a new journey, make the best of it,” Mr. Singh said at IP College.

Later, he interacted with students and asked them why they had chosen a particular college and what their future plans were. During the Q&A session, students had several queries, which ranged from questions about Dramatics club to safety of students from the Northeast.

However, there were no queries about the CBCS. Most students were more focussed on clicking selfies with seniors. With the UGC anti-ragging guidelines in place, there is no room for ragging, but the seniors feel there is no harm in having a healthy interaction.

Students at Ramjas College treated their juniors to an elaborate lunch, while pizza treats were on offer at Aryabhatta College in South Campus.

“I was nervous about making friends, but not any more. A pizza party was a great way to bond,” said Sachin Pandey, a student at Aryabhatta College.

Welcoming freshers with roses, seniors at Hindu college wanted them to tweet every half-an-hour about their first day.

Members of student wings such as the Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU), Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and National Student’s Union of India (NSUI), were also present to resolved student queries.
