This year has seen the active involvement of the Placement Cell in furthering the careers and prospects of Zakirians . It has played a crucial role as one of the most successful initiatives undertaken by the college during this academic session. Faculty members as well as professionals from various fields have been involved in this endeavour.

The Cell worked in association with Career Launcher , Times Education and Indian Express and organized the interaction of final year students with experts from diverse areas. It also arranged for grooming sessions for the students to prepare them for group discussions and personal interviews. These involved language modules , personality assessment tests and interactive sessions. The greatest success of the Cell has been the successful initiation of a campus recruitment drive. Companies like Barclays, ICICI , Wipro , Genpact , Livewel Aviation Industry, Max New York Life Insurance , Co., Google and Wipro Technologies selected candidates and also recruited some second year students for internship programmes . 75% of all students enrolled with the cell were absorbed in various positions. Some students have also been enrolled in free coaching classes for various competitive exams through the Ministry of Minorities Affairs.

The college introduced the faculty mentor scheme in the academic session 2007-08. Under this scheme each student admitted to the college is attached with one faculty member who would be his guide and counsellor for his entire period of stay in the college.

Students are encouraged to discuss any issues or problems - academic or personal, with their respective faculty mentors. like the older days of 'Gurukul' this scheme aims at building a good student teacher relationship, in addition to solving the day to day or any long term problems the students may be facing in college or in their personal life.
The college has up-to-date technologies such as
(a) intranet online access to internal assessment and attendance records for students and faculty,
(b) computer labs and
(c) a well equipped multi-media library.
(d) college auditorium with capacity of 450 seats
(e) Audio-visual Room especially for workshops and seminars

One of the first colleges to create this facility, this year the College has launched a new initiative: Individual students can now directly access their assessment and attendance records. The USP of this scheme lies in the fact that it does not need to rely on necessarily expensive smart cards. The college provides all information free of charge.
College has a hygienically maintained canteen which provides healthy food. Our priority is to provide healthy and wholesome food/snacks to our children and the sprit is well reflected in the canteen menu. We discourage carbonated drinks and junk foods. Fresh juices are made available in the canteen. There is separate chaat corner, providing traditionally famous “Jumma Chaat”, chhole and other delicacies, a legacy of the Old Delhi College .


Keeping the same health consciousness in our mind, we were the first college of Delhi University to declare our campus Pan Masala, Gutkha and Tobacco free, three years back.
The College has a very dedicated Garden Committee, which ensures a round-the-year green campus and each year the college bags many prizes in the ‘Delhi University Flower Show'.
