Beyond the obvious: Shaheed Bhagat Singh College

Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, a co-educational institute established in 1967 is one of the fastest growing off-campus colleges of Delhi University. Named after one of the greatest freedom fighters the country was blessed with, SBSC is among the top five colleges in the university for Commerce with its final cut-offs touching the 95% mark. The College is situated in Sheikh Sarai Phase II with College of Vocational Studies as its neighbour. As soon as you enter the premises of the college, you are greeted with a statue of late freedom fighter Shaheed Bhagat Singh.

Other than commerce, the college is known for its Arts courses as well. With projectors in lecture halls, a double story library and two computer labs, SBSC gives an impression of being well equipped and modernized.

The college is quite active culturally too. The Drama society can be seen practicing day in and day out in the lawns, regardless of the weather, and never fail to make the college proud at inter-college events. The other active societies such as the photography, music, dance, commerce and economics societies, among many others keep the students busy all round the year taking part in fests and hosting events. The college also has facilities to serve sports such as basketball, tennis, football and cricket to keep the athletic bunch happy.

Though, one of the downsides is that the college requires a much needed auditorium and a parking area, which the previous student unions have been demanding for ceaselessly. The commencement of each year brings a renewed hope of either one wish being granted.

Coming to the most important part, food; the college’s canteen fares well when it comes to serving mouth watering dishes. ‘Anna ki canteen’ can never fail to rescue the hungry young kids with delicious food from multiple cuisines (sounds fancier than it is). Also, right outside the college, students can be found chilling at Chacha ki dukaan (a small eatery which serves mouth-watering rolls), the juice stalls or at Café Motto right opposite CVS. And if you get bored of that, then Select City walk is just 10 bucks away (those shared autos are life-savers for SBSCians).

The economical morning show at PVR Saket is the favourite option for the college kids here to pass their spare time between classes. Well, if you don’t feel like going out you can grab a Samosa and just sit and chat under the tree behind the canteen which seems to accommodate half of the college. Everyone seems to have their own fixed spot in and around the campus and can always be found there.

The truth is that SBSC is one of the most easy going colleges in the University where students know very well how to have fun during their three years but at the same time realize when it is time to step into the library and be prepared for the semester exams storm coming their way.
