Hear it from a proud DRCian…

Rahesha Sehgal, a sophomore from DRC pursuing BA Programme, explains,

The myth of not being able to survive in a girls college after your high school graduation from a Co-ed school is definitely a hoax and I say this because I am from a co-ed school and presently studying in Daulat Ram college.
This institution is a great platform to nourish one’s skills while it possesses few of the top societies of the Delhi University circuit, not only this it has given students not just textbook knowledge but has very well emphasised on holistic education too with motivating and supportive teachers. In recent years the college has grown enormously in terms of infrastructural development and co-curricular activities.
Daulat Ram College has given me the confidence and zeal to nurture my dreams and have made me believe on the path I wish to walk on.
