St. Stephens College
Faculty: Of all the departments at St Stephens College, Philosophy, Economics, and Physics have the best faculty. Because of an on-going court case, the college cannot appoint permanent teachers.
Atmosphere: Stephens is often thought of as an elite college, but the crowd here is almost exactly like any other college.
ECA and Sports: The College has a large number of societies, many of which, like the Informal Discussions Group, the Social Service League, the Campus Placement Cell, etc are very active. The Shakespeare society is still alive and reasonably well known. It has one of the best football and basketball teams in the university
CafÃ©: The Stephensâ€™ cafe had been stagnating over the years, and is nowhere near its counterparts in many other colleges. The mince and the nimbu paani are popular, but thatâ€™s been the case for the last four decades or so.

Shri Ram College of Commerce
Faculty: The College prides itself in having an extremely illustrious faculty. Authors like Dr. P.C. Jain, Dr. C.B. Gupta, and others-whose books you revered in school as holy inseparables- will tutor you at SRCC.
Atmosphere: When some of the sharpest minds of the country congregate at SRCC to further their career interests, the atmosphere is bound to get competitive-yes, sometimes immensely cut throat at that. But in the due course of time, one realizes that the most distinct quality of College is that it never let you feel youâ€™ve achieved enough.
Extra-Curricular Activities and Sports: The College encourages co- curricular activities through its various societies and clubs, of which only a few are active through the year while others pop-up during the winter fest and disappear with its closing ceremony. SRCC is also proud of its Placement Cell which acts as an ideal link between the academia and industry. The college fest â€˜Crossroadsâ€™ is by far â€˜theâ€™ most important date in the college calendar, perhaps a notch more important for an SRCC student than the university examinations too.
Canteen: There are no two opinions about the fact that the canteen needs massive improvements, in terms of variety and quality of food, and ambience too; however that never deters an SRite from spending hours at the canteen in blissful vela.

Hans Raj College
Faculty: Although the media seems to celebrate only some of the departments here, truth is that most members of faculty across departments are more worried about academia than their students!
Atmosphere: With new faces each year, new trends keep developing. But generally speaking, the atmosphere at Hans Raj is chilled-out and very friendly.
Extra Curricular Activities and Sports: ECA and sports add color, but donâ€™t yet occupy centre-stage. Dramatics, debating and dance are amongst the most popular activities. Besides these, each department has its own society. In sports, Hans Raj is best known for its basket ball team.
Canteen: The canteen is not much to talk about, although the spring rolls, fried rice and the chole-bhature are worth a try. Its prime location right across the LP makes it the most crowded and colorful places on the college campus. There is also a Nescafe counter in college.
Vasundhara Sharma, Economics
Anchit Jain, B. Com (Hons)
Faculty: The Maths, Economics and the English Faculty of the college are simply excellent. The commerce faculty of Hindu is also worth mentioning.
Atmosphere: The atmosphere in Hindu is pretty chilled out. Most of the students are seen hanging around in the lush green lawns of the college armed with their guitars and endless conversation.
ECA and Sports: The Sports of Hindu has deteriorated in the past few years. However this is not the same in ECA. The Music, Theatre and Debating Societies of the college are brilliant.
Canteen: Itâ€™s quite famous for itâ€™s seekh kebab rolls. The new additions of naan with shahi panner and momos have been a spectacular hit.
Oindrilla Dutta, Hindu College
Kirori Mal College
Faculty: The English and Economics faculties in KMC are absolutely outstanding. Being a student from English, I have had the privilege of interacting with faculty members that are extremely helpful and take a personal interest in oneâ€™s progress as a student. Also, an inconspicuous Urdu department is one that cannot be ignored.
Atmosphere: Rubbing shoulders with other North Campus colleges, KMC has its own blend of the intellectuals and the non-conformists. It certainly doesnâ€™t compel you to make academics your only priority, perhaps allowing you to explore other aspects of your personality.
Extra Curricular Activities and Sports: KMC is most known for its widespread interest in extra-curricular activities and performing arts like Theatre and Music have long since been DU favorites. Home to excellent soccer and basketball teams, KMC has made its presence felt in Inter-College sporting competitions as well.
Canteen: The KM Canteen doesnâ€™t seem to give its students any respite. The food remains inedible with what one can only call an almost sadistic consistency.
Adhir, Kirorimal College
Indraprastha College for Women
Faculty: It boasts of one of the best faculty in Delhi University. The Department of Mass Media and Mass Communication also has guest faculty that consists of professionals from renowned media houses of the country.
Atmosphere: Being a girlâ€™s college, IP ensures such an atmosphere that ensures that you can walk around the campus comfortably in a skirt, a pair of shorts or even pyjamas! Also, the student-teacher relationships are frank enough for the girls to discuss their love lives with the teachers.
ECA and Sports: The endless facilities provided by the college urges the students to improve their sporting talents and physical fitness. In fact, it is the only womenâ€™s college with a swimming pool, a gymnasium, a well-equipped health club, a shooting range and an extensive play-field.
Canteen: Just outside the college gate, sits a bhelpuri-wala who serves a wide variety of mouth-watering items. From fresh fruit juice to burgers and aloo-chaat; he makes plenty of quick-meals for the laborious girls of IP college.
