As thousands of university aspirants flock to the campus for forms this admission season, the Delhi University Students Union (DUSU) has a whole set of plans to make the new batch of 'fachchas', as freshers are popularly known, feel welcome. For students planning to buy new computers and laptops in the new academic session beginning July heavy discounts are available. DUSU is preparing a platform where students can purchase these gadgets cheap.
'DUSU is in talks with five IT companies including HCL and Dell. Soon we'll have a tie-up with the one that offers us the best deal. We will give the companies a ready market and the students will get a platform where they can buy computers at the most pocket friendly price,' told DUSU president Nupur Sharma. DUSU has set up information desks at all colleges where the common pre-admission forms are being sold. 'We have set up help desks at all these centres and our volunteers are helping out students and parents in filling the forms and guiding them as to where they should go and who they can speak to,' said Tejeswar, DUSU member. The DUSU volunteers are also handing out information regarding important dates for admissions and on paying guest accommodation. Another plus is that the DUSU volunteers are guiding freshers on career options apart from what DU offers.
