The University of Delhi (DU) campus was bustling with activity on Wednesday, the first day of the academic session. An aura of jubilence was palpable as students exuded excitement, as well as, nervousness about starting a new chapter in their lives. Many were accompanied by their parents.
Arun, who enrolled in Aryabhatta College, was ecstatic about living his “dream”. “I didn’t get my favourite subject and had to take BSc, but it’s all good. I’m really happy and so excited to start my new chapter,” he said.
Accompanied by her parents on her first day on campus, Ananya said, ”Of course today is an important day in my life. My parents were very happy and pleased that I could enroll in Delhi University”.

Many colleges held orientation programmes to apprise the new batch of students about the syllabi, the societies and the committees.
Two students, who were leaving the campus after orientation, said that it was “great experience”. “Today, we submitted the documents and had the orientation. It was a great experience on the first day on campus,” they said.
Rahul, who was waiting for his sister outside Aryabhatta College said, “I also studied at Delhi University, today my younger sister entered the same campus. She was a little nervous but more than happy on her first day at campus, so am I”.
Though admissions to 70,000 seats in various DU colleges are still underway, the academic year for the first-semester students commenced on Wednesday.
