Delhi University welcomes freshers as the new academic session begins

As Delhi University opened its doors for the new academic session on Wednesday, student groups are leaving no stone unturned to ensure that first-year students are comfortable. They welcomed the first years with great zeal and enthusiasm.

From creating help desks to guiding first-year students through the maze of streets and bylanes, decorating colleges to distributing chocolates, student groups have taken it upon themselves to guide first year students through the stressful first days.

While some freshmen were excited to enter college, many were nervous. Several students were also accompanied by their parents.

Rangolis adorned colleges like Kirorimal College and Daulat Ram College while the main gates were decorated with flowers. Posters welcoming the frescoes were also hung in every corner.

At Ramjas College and several others, volunteers from the RSS-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) gathered at the gates and dragged flowers to the frescoes before guiding them to their orientation rooms.

At the service desks, volunteers were seen informing new recruits about the group and handing them information leaflets about the ABVP.

“We got up at 4 in the morning and prepared the posters. We have set up help desks in all colleges,” said Shivam Tiwari, president of ABVP’s Ramjas College unit.

“We decorated the colleges with flowers and rangoli because we wanted to give a grand welcome to the youth,” he said.

Members of Krantikari Yuva Sangathan (KYS) and Federation of Indian Students were also seen distributing leaflets at Vishwavidyalaya Metro station.

“We are helping all the youth. Our volunteers are guiding them if they face any problem,” said KYS activist Ambuj.

The Congress-affiliated National Students Union of India (NSUI) welcomed the new students with flowers and chocolates.

“Students should not feel that they are arriving in an alien environment. Delhi University is a big family and we as seniors welcomed all the freshers,” the NSUI leader said , Lokesh Chugh.

The former were also full of praise for the volunteers who “went out of their way to help.”

“The elderly and the volunteers were very supportive. We feel at home. They have provided us with all the information,” said Ritika, a first-year student at Daulat Ram College.

Many colleges organized orientation programs to inform new students about curricula, societies, and committees.
