Shivangi's review on St.Stephens College (Delhi University) | Written on: 01 Jan 1970

 ACADEMICS & FACULTY Know more


St. Stephen's College, New Delhi, regarded as one of the premier Science and Arts colleges in India, offers undergraduate courses in Physics, Chemistry, English, Economics, Mathematics, History, Philosophy, Sanskrit, B.Sc. (Programme) and B.A. (Programme). The nonpareil faculty members of this college, officially known as the Senior Members, are not only highly qualified academicians but also excellent human beings who are always there for the students of the college - the Junior Members - whenever they need them. Regular theory classes are held for every undergraduate course and they are complemented by weekly tutorial classes wherein the teachers review the lessons taught through the week through exercises and also clarify any doubts that the students may have. Moreover, the teachers are always approachable for clearing doubts through e-mail and during their off periods. The class hours of the science courses are particularly hectic, as there are regular and rigorous three-hour laboratory classes three to four days a week, along with intensive theoretical classes. The college hosts a huge library with thousands of books on diverse subjects ranging from Literature to Quantum Physics. The college also offers part-time Certificate, Diploma and Advanced Diploma language courses in several languages. Recently, the college, in collaboration with Network 18, has introduced an open course on Citizenship And Cultural Richness, which is a multi-disciplinary certificate course for any citizen of Delhi with an eagerness to gain knowledge on issues ranging from Politics to Science. The weekly lectures are hosted in the College Hall by some eminent faculty members and ex-Stephenians.


 FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE Know more


Every year, there are student exchange programmes and scholarship opportunities available with some of the leading international universities like Brown University, USA, and Soka University, Japan.


 FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP Know more


Several highly prestigious merit-based and need-based scholarships are offered every year to several students, like the Sumitomo Scholarship and the Vikas Dhaka Scholarship.


 PLACEMENTS & ALUMNI NETWORK Know more


The Campus Placement Cell of the college is highly active and efficient, helping First and Second Year students who have registered for their newsletter e-mail secure internships with start-ups, NGOs and other organisations, mainly through their Internship Fair and also throughout the rest of the year, and helping Final Year students secure reputable jobs with MNCs like McKinsey & Company, NGOs and start-ups.


 INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION Know more


The entire college is a completely no smoking, no alcohol zone, and the campus is extremely clean and well-maintained with several lush green lawns and flower-beds. There is a cafeteria where various refreshments and snacks are available, and also a smaller food stall near the Science block, which is popularly known as the "Science Dhaba". The Humanities classes are held in the Main Block classrooms while the Science classes are held in the Science Block. Classrooms are air-conditioned and equipped with projectors to facilitate audio-visual presentations. The college has an Internet Resource Centre for the use of all Junior and Senior members, and the college provides very high speed WiFi facility to all members.There is an audio-visual room and separate common rooms for junior and senior members. There is a football court, a basketball court and a well-equipped gymnasium which also has a rock-climbing wall. The security features of the college are impeccable, as the campus is monitored through CCTV cameras, the IDs of all students are regularly checked at the entry gate, and there is a readily approachable anti-ragging committee and committee against the sexual harassment of women. The curfew time of the college is 10pm, after which all entry gates are locked. The college is also well-connected by public transportation as there is a rickshaw stand in front of the college, and the Vishwavidyala metro station is at a walking distance. Parking space is available for the private vehicles of teachers and students.


 HOSTELS & FOOD Know more


The college has three Residence blocks each for male and female junior members, and roughly one-third of the students from each stream are residents there, who are, thus, colloquially known as the 'Resis'.Rooms are allotted on twin-sharing basis to the First Year students and individual rooms are allotted to the Second and Third Year students. Each block has common washrooms for the residents of that block. The hostel residents are served breakfast, lunch and dinner in the college mess, and although the spread is limited, the quality of the food is reasonably good.


 CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS Know more


The college has a vibrant cultural life as there are a total of 45 co-curricular and academic societies that regularly organise and participate in various intra-college and inter-college events, some of the notable ones being The Students' Union Society, The Debating Society, The Shakespeare Society, Spic Macay, The Planning Forum, and The Indian Choreography Society. In February each year, a three-day long intra-college cultural fest, called 'Harmony', is organised through the collaborative efforts of the various societies, wherein all the students get together and let their hair down through a number of fun activities and games. Ample opportunities are available for students interested in sports to participate in various inter-college competitions and tournaments.


 SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE Know more


The social atmosphere of the college is one of unity in diversity. The student body comprises young people belonging to various ethnicities, and everyone accepts each one as their own. The senior students are very welcoming of the freshers from day one, and the faculty members make it a point to ensure that each student gets enough attention to learn and develop properly. Morning Assemblies are held in the college hall for the First Year students, from Monday to Thursday every week, wherein, usually, our Reverent Principle imparts valuable life lessons to the students, and, often, notable ex-Stephenians are invited as guest speakers. The campus thrives with some activity or the other almost every day, thus everyone gets plenty of scope to express and nurture their talents, with the full support of their elders and peers, and learns to develop strong, long-lasting interpersonal bonds.
