Journalism has been called the “first rough draft of history”. D.U.B may be termed as the first rough draft of DU history. Ridiculous hyperboles apart, DUB knows fully well that the DU students have an insatiable curiosity to know everything. Conscious of this, DU Beat has been providing the DU students with what they need and demand – the truth.
DU Beat started off in October 2007 as an independent student newspaper. Since then we have come a long way, addressing students’ issues and reporting news and views regarding Delhi University.
We are the only independent newspaper in Delhi University with a readership of over 1,000 students across colleges of Delhi University per week and about 30,000 students in a year.
Our print edition gets published weekly and is distributed among 20 colleges and our online edition overcomes some distribution barriers which increases our reach within Delhi University and beyond.
Our team consists of 50 students across colleges of Delhi University. Since our inception, we have grown in several aspects – from team members to readership – DU Beat has received good feedback and has been appreciated by many.
