Gargi College DU: When in 1922, University of Delhi was established, none of us ever knew that it would become such an essential part of each student’s dream.

Like recently I heard upon an incident of Roshan, who lives in Bihar that he was preparing for his IIT till class 11, and was amongst the toppers of the school, but when he came to know about DU perks and services, and came to know about the value of getting graduated with a DU degree. He dropped his plan of IIT and started to prepare for the score above 94% just to get admission in DELHI UNIVERSITY. And Guess what he scored 96.25% and is now in Hansraj College for Chemistry Hons

This example doesn’t mean that if you are preparing for IIT or PMT so you can’t score well in boards and get into Delhi University, It’s just that the craze among the students for DU is so high that many students change their streams for DU.

But in many cases, we also see that students, who didn’t get their desired field or college or stream but are above 88%, can get into DU with their BEST FOUR. Choosing DU is better than dropping a year, is what people often say. After such a decision, no one ever regrets upon their decision, because of ALL THE NAME AND FAME EARNED BY DELHI UNIVERSITY FOR SO LONG.

Today, we are going to talk about such an integral college of Delhi University which is in South Campus and holds a great dignitary in the name of colleges and campus. The college is well known for its High Profiled GIRLS and classy fests.

It is none other than GARGI COLLEGE.

Just for knowledge…. are you guys aware that the famous and counted among the hot actresses of Bollywood URVASHI RAUTELA is an alumnus of Gargi college DU.
