New Delhi: With its helplines and
open-days flooded with pre-admission queries, Delhi University
on Monday launched its Facebook page for students, giving them
another avenue to sort out their questions, raise their
grievances and offer suggestions.
At the first Open Day at the South Campus, officials
of the University were bombarded by a series of questions by
curious students and concerned parents as they sought to clear
their doubts about the new admission norms and other details
and nuances of several courses.
Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh said at the institution`s
social networking profile, a link to which is available on the
University`s website, he will himself try to answer several of
the queries posted by students.
Speaking to aspirants, the Vice Chancellor also
advised them to opt for the subjects they actually have
aptitude for rather than running after market trends.
"We are today launching our Facebook page; a dedicated
email id is also in place. I`ll do my best to personally
answer several queries," he said.
University officials said they are also making
available the option of e-open days whereby presentations will
be posted on the University website.
"We are also launching e-open days and e-brochures.
This will help local students as they will not have to move
around the city in the heat and also outstation students who
can avail of the information benefits from their own cities,"
said Dean Students` Welfare J M Khurana.
