College Infrastructure
The College is well equipped with all the necessary facilities and infrastructure. The library has all the books that are required for various courses and it also provides students with a research opportunity. The sports centre has various equipment like basketball, football, badminton, shot put, wieghts, etc. Our college also has a wifi which is in a good working condition. Our computer lab has varied range of computers and other electronic devices which are regularly used by the students.
Academics
I was persuing Economics honours as i have had a really keen interest in the subject and it fascinates me. The faculty members of the college are great both in respect of teaching skills and interpersonal skills. Most of the faculty members have completed their Phd, so their knowledge base is very strong. Yes, the curriculum gets updated frequently and includes all the recent developments made in economics. Yes, my course makes me able to sit for a job placement.
Placements
The quality of the placements has been great. About 70% of the students are placed through campus placements.The highest salary package was around 6 lakh for the course of bcom hons. The average salary offered is around 3 lakh. Yes, the placement process was easy and pleasant. Our college has been very supportive and infact it provides us with training facilities for the interviews that are conducted by the companies.
Value-for-money
The cost of my course was ₹12000 per year. Yes, the moneynis totally worth it because the college provides us with much more facilities that usually cost more than the fees of the course.
Campus Life
Campus life is the best. There are various socities that students can get into like dramatics, music, dancing, arts and cratfs, debating,etc.The teachers are very supportive both from the academic and personal point of view. The staff and students are very helpful. The location is completely safe. Yes it can handle emergencies.
Anything Else
All the things listed above and not enough to completely describe my college as it is only through experience one can see the beauty of it.

College Infrastructure
Shyam Lal College have all the necessary infrastructure, facilities and they have taken care of Handicapped people too, they provide lift facilities to them also other special services. Classroom are well equipped with projectors and other facilities. Our college won't have hostel facility. Campus is fully WiFi zone. Our college canteen is hygienic.
Academics
I studied b.com hons as I want to pursue mba in future. Faculties are really helpful and their way of teaching is superb. They focus on each and every tiny points too. Curriculum needs to be updated but it's not a fault of college as college have to follow the curriculum provided by Delhi University. Teachers try their best for students.
Placements
Placements in our college have a poor record, there's no placements or I can say only 1-2% students get placed and highest salary offering is around 25-30k per month. As it's just 3-4 students in a batch so can't say average package because it's not possible to find. Also college is improving now and they are trying to conduct internships and jobs fair for providing jobs.
Value-for-money
Yes, as the fee is really less, it's a value for money college. Also we are getting a degree from one of the best University of world.
Campus Life
Campus have a huge space with playground and parks where students can hangout with friends. Location of the college is little bit issue but inside college it's all safe. Yeah, college can handle emergencies as police station is just walking distance from college also college have own security guards.

Shyam Lal’s campus is pretty small and lacks a beautiful garden unlike other colleges in Delhi. The college is building looks very old and shabby. Thankfully, there’re no signs of the building collapsing. The non air conditioned classrooms have just about comfortable wooden benches, some broken though, and fans not working most of the times. Lack of senior faculty is a serious issue here. Most of the lectures are conducted in Hindi and sometimes in English.Boys to girls ratio is 70:30 and the crowd is not at all happening.Apart from Kamla Nagar, there are no local hangouts and one has to travel to Connaught Place or some malls far in Ghaziabad.Shyam Lal surprisingly has an air conditioned canteen but it doesn’t work for more than 11 months of the year. Placement scenario is pretty poor and companies don’t visit the college campus. Student either go for the central placement to the North Campus where the smart North campus students are already placed or one has to try on their own.

shyam college is one of the college which is upgrading it's standard day by day.I feel so lucky that I am part of it.The college campus is green, not so big but it is maintained very nicely. One can feel so fresh and relaxed there. This creates a good atmosphere for studies. Teachers are also very good and helpful. They teach us in simple and easy ways with practical examples.The canteen should be improved as the food is so oily and unhealthy.There are few teachers which have got an amazing experience of over 20 years that's quite handy for students as they can learn from them. Open discussions and use of smart classes is a daily routine.The college also has a nice auditorium, but again with rules to be followed.

This college is located in east delhi shadhara district and is a huge college. The college is well connected with public transport like metro and dtc services.This college isa good college and is affilated to delhi university. The packages offered are okayish butyou shouldtry to do off-campus placements because the college placements are restricted to students with good grades only. Teaching faculty is good. Infrastructure is still developing.

My college life has been a great phase of life. The faculty is really coperative and always there to help. The lush green ground gives opportunity to sports lovers such as cricket and hockey. The canteen food is really tasty and the library is always full of knowledge.

The commerce faculty is one of the best facilities in the Delhi university. The college has the brilliant, smart and beautiful teacher(I know, it doesn't effect studies).college has its own fabulous campus at GT road Delhi, and do you know what is the best thing? It's at the walking distance (2mins) from Welcome metro station (DMRC red line Rithala to Dilshad garden), college just got a new building standing with the old one, canteen is good, air-cooled, and college has its own parking ,Every year college celebrates its fest, that excites all the pupils, Raftaar, Hardy Sandhu etc etc. are the artist who comes in college fests,it is located in the East zone of Delhi, but if you look just outside the main gate, you'll see one flyover, two metro lines(one under construction). And bus stand is also just 2 mins away(walking distance) like welcome metro station (2 mins walking distance)college is good in sports as well as in academics, fees is not high, well equipped computerised is fully air-cooled, library has thousands of books and it's fully computerised and connected to the central library of Delhi university main central library.

Despite the college is almost 50 years old, the teaching staff is still pretty average. Most of the teachers of every department are freshers and have a few years of industrial experience. Lack of senior faculty is a serious issue here. Most of the lectures are conducted in Hindi and sometimes in English.As the college is affiliated to Delhi University (DU), certainly most of the students are from the city of Delhi though you see a good number of students coming from Northeast Delhi and Ghaziabad. Boys to girls ratio are 70:30 and the crowd are not at all happening. You can expect to meet a lot of students from the OBC minority in Shyam Lal College. All in all, the crowd is something that you would not cherish during your graduation days.

It is a good college for graduation degree. the infrastructure of the college is really good but the washrooms are not so neat and clean. the faculty is no doubt very good and co-operative. a canteen can be better there are very less food options. I don't have any idea regarding the hostel because I don't live in it but as far as the transport is concerned welcome metro station is just opposite the college so you have a really good transport facilities. sports facilities are very good. all over its a good college

Being a Delhi university college, this college is an average college in all aspects as compared to other DU colleges. It's off-campus college. Infrastructure is still in progress, hope it gets better. Faculty and societies are good enough for the students. Atmosphere usually is calm. The crowd is neither too good nor too bad. One can enjoy his/her college life here also, this is not too bad.

Infrastructure of the new building is much better than the the old one, though crowd of the college is not good. college life is average, placements are also average. Faculty is also nice. College is known for its HOCKEY team. Labs are good, no hostel accommodation, easy and accessible location. nearest metro station welcome on the red line.

The infrastructure was very good for that time which included a massive cricket ground and the college participated in various sports events .The location of the college was also very good. there was no exposure to any sort of companies at the time but the faculty was very good. The college being affiliated to Delhi University was very affordable.

Overall experience at the college was a mixed one but if it is ranked in its studies then I will say was not so good. The campus is good at par, still, there is a need to built the infrastructure and the same time college administrator must focus on the college placements. Faculties are good so far but not best.

The college is just an average college with very fewer facilities like the cafeteria is very poor, there are no grounds for those keen on sports, the infrastructure needs a lot of improvement and the crowd is an average one. The good points are faculty is experienced and helpful , a good placement cell and the transportation is easy as its near to the metro station.

The college fees is affordable. It is a normal college nothing so unique, good for obtaining a regular graduation degree. The crowd is not so good. There is no good cafeteria. Great exposure in the field of sports. The faculty is good and helpful. The transportation facilities is convenient for students as the metro station is near by.

Well, I would say this college is like a second home to me I have got such precious friends here, there is lots of fun time in this place. The infrastructure is fine but I just wish there would have been a better faculty but I guess it's the same condition of every college. Overall it's one of the awesome places to learn.

I have mixed reviews about the professors. Although there's no doubt in their qualifications, some of the professors can be really stringent and orthodox, and at times even unreasonable. However, there are also those who are extremely liberal, and who share excellent rapports with the students. The academic system is really frustrating. 3 days and 6 exams without even the complete knowledge of syllabus really sucks me. The examination system is totally disrupted and grading is even more Ruth. Attendance is quite strict. Even the 'liberal' professors are very particular when it comes to attendance.

College years are the most important and precious years of a person life because these years are the first step of a student into the real world . My college gave me the best experience . Best friends teachers and best knowledge of the life . Infrastructure was good enough to make us comfortable to study . Still have to face the placement procedure but from earlier experiences i can say it will be the best one . The college years change me from in and out . One person should seriously live these years .

Infrastructure of the college has high scope of improvement as though classes have good sitting arrangements, cleanliness is compromised. The college offers a good placement opportunities. While the canteen is average and has been changed 3 times in 3 years. The library has a good collection of books but lacks any kind of sitting arrangements and silence. conflicts between college staff and teaching faculties along with presence of political parties like NSUI and ABVP effect studies. On the other hand the hardworking and dedicated teachers help and guide students as much as they can.
