A unique learning experience awaits students getting enrolled at Delhi University's prestigious Shri Ram College of Commerce for the upcoming new academic year. The college is adding two more computer centres by July, taking the total number to three. The college is also going the wi-fi way. Students stepping into any of the 25 classrooms in the college will get to study in an air-conditioned and IT-enabled environment from this year.
The college has also constructed 16 additional faculty rooms in the past couple of years. The tutorials are held in the faculty rooms. In all, there are 54 faculty rooms now, and just like the classrooms they are wi fi-enabled and air-conditioned too. So are the six rooms in the administration block. The financial grant for all these infrastructure development activities came partly from funds released by the University in the wake of the expansion for the Other Backward Classes and partly from liberal donations by the college alumni. The college is also keen that every student should carry a laptop to the campus. Those who can't afford it will be provided with loan facilities from the banks. The Principal has also requested some corporate giants to offer financial aid enabling the students from economically underprivileged background to buy laptops. The college has added 73 seats in view of the increase in the overall intake of students. Out of 551 seats on offer this year, 442 are in B.Com (Honours) and the remaining 109 for Economics (Honours).
