What do the students say about their college?

Indraprastha College for Women has one of the most beautiful campuses with its white
heritage building in contrast to all the other red-brick colleges. Frankly speaking, as a second
year student, I can now say that our college is more academic-oriented. The professors,
including the senior most ones, are quite cool. Besides, the campus is quite peaceful in the
sense that although it’s considered as a north campus college, it’s away from the hustle and
bustle of the main campus area. This includes zero drama, be it DU elections, protests, chit-
chat near chai-sutta tapris and also the fun or the relief that there’s no co-ed college around!
Perhaps, IPCW is kind of historically unique in its own way.
