8 MYTHS ABOUT DELHI UNIVERSITY THAT ARE TOTALLY ABSURD

by Team FUCCHA

  DU is like mysterious place until you step into one of its colleges. You hear a lot about it- half true, half untrue. These are some myths about DU you should never believe in. 1. DU KIDS = RICH SPOIL BRATS 1 It’s a big misconception that people have about DUites. They think that every DU child was born with a silver spoon in his/her mouth. The fact is just the contrary. DU is well known for the diversity of students enrolled there. This gives the students great opportunity to know people from different backgrounds and having different point of views. 2. DU = CAMPUS 2 The fact that people limit the boundaries of DU to its campus colleges is totally absurd. It’s true that DU has a North campus and a South campus. But it too has many off-campus colleges. They are as much part of DU as the campus colleges. 3. GIRLS FROM WOMENS COLLEGE = LESBIANS 3 No! If a girl is enrolled in a girl’s college then it does not signify that she’s a lesbian or will eventually turn into one. Girls from a women college are as normal as that of a co-ed college. And proudly, they are more independent and self-reliant. 4. DU LIFE = PARTIES AND FESTS 4 Farhan Akhtar at SRCC’s Crossroads, Salim Sulaiman at Hindu’s Mecca and the kids keep enjoying the endless parties. Surely it’s not what DU is all about. Smartly planned DU syllabus and never ending assignments ensures that DUites have to work really hard to pass. 5. INITIAL DAYS AT DU = RAGGING 5 Every fresher has a nightmare of being ragged during first few days of college. But in DU, this nightmare turns out to be a myth. DU has probably got the best seniors. They are caring and supportive. They eventually become your lifetime besties. 6. CUTOFFS 6 Off-campus students often face remarks like “Oh, you are from DDUC, might not have scored well.” The misconception that it’s easy to get through off-campus cutoffs will only end you up in tears. Both campus and off-campus college cutoffs are equally high. Every DU college is good and it’s a great challenge to get into it. 7. CAMPUS V/S OFF-CAMPUS LIFE 7 There is no difference between the lifestyles of an off-campus or core campus Duite. Off-campus colleges offer the same level of opportunities and exposures to its students as are offered by campus colleges. Students, there are as cool and trendy as those of core campus. 8. DU STUDENTS = DRUG ADDICTS 8 The myth that most DUites must be smoking pots in their free time is ridiculously absurd. Students at DU are not chain smokers or drinkers. They are normal human beings who have thousand other things to worry about rather than simply lying unconscious due to hangovers.
