College Infrastructure
The college has all the basic infrastructural facilities including banking and parking facilities for the students. The canteen is hygienic and provides good food at cheap rates. The library has all the useful academic material and resources for our reference.
Academics
The academic faculty of political science department is very good at Gargi College. The teachers are very helpful and dedicated to their profession. The syllabus is regularly updated according to the changes made in the curriculum by Delhi university.
Placements
The placements for my course at Gargi College are quite satisfactory. Though the placement cell works very hard to bring in maximum companies to the college to offer job and internship opportunities to the girls.
Value-for-money
The fee for B.A. (Hons) in political science is approximately Rs.12000. I personally believe this amount is worth it when seen in comparison to the quality of education provided by the college to the students enrolled.
Campus Life
My campus life is good.Lot of activities are conducted to make students show their talent and skills. Overall there are many societies which enables one to do something in areas apart from academics.

Gragi college, a college which is a dream of every student to get into. One of the top rated colleges of Delhi University it is totally impeccable. Freedom within boundaries builds up a horizon for students to rise high in career but with great moments of happiness and enjoyment. Let it be the highly qualified and intellectual faculty or their interaction with students which builds a relationship between them. Its not justa college , its a family. Providing students with numerous of courses with all streams; science, commerce or arts. It has a seat for every student interested in rising up in career in any field.If its girls college then it doesn't mean that the girls out there are conservative.. It has got the hottest crowd in delhi university and is the most happening one. I am totally enjoying my life at gargi college.

I really like the campus of my college

Posted on 16 Jun' 17 by alka vohra
Batch of Jan. 1, 2016 | B.Sc Chemistry Hons
Good infrastructure and good lawns within the campus. Gargi also has huge grounds on the campus itself.The science faculty is very reputed here and students too agree to it . Teachers mainly communicate in English and they are also able to convey to the students properly. There are many students who commute by car and many others have guy friends at their service. Smoking is commonplace here although it is a girls college. One of the highest point for the college festival was when Mohit Chauhan visited the Gargi during the festival.The classes are air-conditioned, neat and clean. The library is very hygenic, economical and spacious. We also have a Nescafe shop in our college. The computer lab has an ample number of systems for the whole class at once. The auditorium is really great.
