Our Stay/ Visit Experience
We were very excited to visit Delhi Technological University because of the number of good reviews we had heard about it. So, we reached there on 22nd April at around 11 am and prepared to explore the big campus. Starting from the main gate, we walked down to the Open Air Theatre (OAT), where some students were roaming. They told us many fascinating stories about the place and even volunteered to guide us throughout. We saw the DTU Lake, which seemed a fascinating place and out of curiosity, we went to check out the so-called haunted lane, where we were welcomed by a large group of monkeys. We walked around the shady paths and then went to see the various departments. With tiredness and afternoon heat striking in, we decide to sit in the canteen. Since there were a lot of them, it was difficult to choose, we ultimately went to the Mechanical Block canteen (MC canteen), which seemed promising and it did not fail us. The surprisingly pocket-friendly prices along with the variety of delicacies justified the huge crowd there. Then we saw the auditorium, met some faculty and strolled around the lush green campus. We took a ride in the solar car made by the students. It was an enthralling experience. As dawn started to happen, we even spotted some peacocks and we ended our day sitting on the benches amidst the flowing winds, outside the night canteen to have a glance of the much talked about nightlife at DTU.
