The Delhi University (DU) campus was abuzz with activity on the first day of the academic session on Wednesday, with excitement and nerves among students as they turned the page on a new chapter in their lives.

The academic year of the first year students of DU started on Wednesday.

Many colleges have orientation programs to inform the new batch of students about the syllabus, societies and committees.

Some students were thrilled and some were nervous. Many of them were accompanied by their parents.

Admitted in History (Honours) at Ramjas College, Nehal was with his mother on his first day on campus.

“Ramjas wasn’t my first choice but I’m not complaining because it’s a good college. This is the first time I’m visiting the DU campus. Some of my friends have also joined the college. It will be a great experience,” Nehal, who goes by his first name, said. .

Haryana’s Garima Rajput, who has taken admission in Sri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC), is excited and hopeful about her new journey.

“This is a big day for me. I am going to do B.Com Hons. The college is well known. The campus is beautiful,” he said.

“We have to submit documents on the first day of college and then there is the orientation program. I don’t think there will be any classes on the first day,” said Rajput.

Colleges were decorated with posters welcoming freshers. Members of student organizations such as Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) and National Students Union of India (NSUI) were seen supporting the new students.

Nehal and Rajput are among thousands of students admitted to DU based on their Common University Entrance Test (CUET) scores.

Although the admission program for 70 thousand seats in various colleges of DU is going on, the academic year of the first semester students has started from Wednesday.

Speaking to PTI on Tuesday, DU Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh said the university was ready for the start of the new academic year and arrangements were made to ensure availability of all facilities to students.

“We are ready to conduct classes for first-year students. This year, we have organized admissions through Chuet and are implementing the National Education Policy. It is a different policy and students will have more flexibility,” Singh said.

From this academic year, DU is implementing NEP and four-year undergraduate programmes.
