College life, they say, is one of the best parts of your lives. You step into adulthood, shed away the school kid image and become the free person you’ve always wanted to become. Bunking classes, completing notes a day before the exams, chilling at your fave adda - if you haven’t done these things, then you haven’t really enjoyed your college life. And if you are or were a student of DU’s North Campus, then here are 8 things you defo must’ve done during your college life there!
1. Made Thousands Of Photocopies Every Semester @ Patel Chest
So as the semester goes on, our attendance keeps falling, day by day. We lose the will to attend the early morning classes and that leads to just one thing - no notes when the exams finally descend upon us. But as a true North Campus-ite, you gather (read - beg for) notes and head to Patel Chest and get millions of photocopies made of all the notes at Daljeet Photocopy or Gupta Electrostat, every semester. Basically, photocopy shops at Patel Chest are life saviours!
Where | Patel Chest - Vijay Nagar Marg
2. Had A Piping Hot Cheesy Maggi @ Tom Uncle’s Maggi Point
Making the students of North Campus fall in love with Maggi for the last 40 years, Tom Uncle’s Maggi Point is an iconic food haunt this side of the campus. If you tell anyone that you study here and still haven’t gorged on their Cheese Masala Maggi or Mixed Sauce Maggi, then better be prepared to be mocked, people. What are you still waiting for? Scoot over right away!
