Not just Indore, but DAVV is probably one of the institutes of Central India. Students from the entire state come and study here as it is arguably the best university in Indore that I know. Daily 6-7 hours at college is compulsory, and faculty are good teaching is also next level. Placements though are not as good as Medi-Caps University or SAGE University but still apart from that, DAVV is better than them in other departments. For B.Com, fees are also quite reasonable as autonomous institutes these days charge quite high even for courses like B.Com. Results dates keeps on changing as the result was never announced on the date it was expected. The university has many courses, and there are different buildings for each one of them. The college also doesn’t have any compulsion in attendance. The college has activities every month and will give you a feeling that you are studying in college. Thus, fulfill all your imagination of college life at DAVV. The college hosts a lot of outing programs, in-house parties, and club meetings. In addition to the course, you will also learn a lot about leading a happy life in the future at DAVV.
I did B.Com in Accounting and Taxation and with relaxed rules and no mid-semester calculations in the final semester. Just study hard for the final exams and relax the entire year is how the academics worked at DAVV. There was no compulsion in attendance, and you can straightaway appear for exams, and still, the college doesn’t mind. Most of us used to go to the tuitions and therefore avoided lectures at the college. It’s hard to understand the subjects when you are studying with 100 more students in the classrooms. However, everyone thought so, and therefore the classes never had over 30 students at any point in time.
They also were relaxed and didn’t bother the students to study. They were pretty clear that you are at the college to study on your own. I never approached them like other students who would turn up for doubts which they cleared wholeheartedly. Thus, they were ready for the ones who needed their guidance, and for those who didn’t bother them were also fine with them. I don’t think anywhere else on earth one can find such relaxed and friendly teachers.
B.Com student’s placement was nothing but miserable. We were asked to be ready and wear the best dress come on the D-Day. The D-Day never came as the placements were done in just a span of 2 days, and only half were sent for the interviews. Out of that half, too, only half of them got placed. As a fresher, the salary offered was still good, but the university has everything so organized, I wish they have also managed the placement scenario well. The placements problem was in many courses, and all the students had this complain with the college.
The university had half a dozen hostels for both boys and girls. They were far off from our building, and since none of my friends were staying at the hostel, I can’t say how it looked like from inside. The college, though have quite a few hostels for both boys and girls. One of my friends stayed at Siddhant Girls hostel, and those who don't want to stay at the college hostel can stay there as the college hostel is quite strict when it comes to girls. The in-time and dress code had to be followed, and any rule break will result in the warden calling up your family. My knowledge about the hostel ends here.
The size of the university is beyond anyone’s imagination as it is spread in over 760 acres. Our building was at the Takshashila parisar campus and our campus had almost 30 buildings. Red colored forts or academic blocks, call it whatever you want, but that’s how the buildings at the campus looked like. Facilities are a little old as auditorium, library, and gymnasium are outdated for sure. The central library, which is the biggest library in India, has over 2 lakh books, and the study area of the library is suited for 1000 students at a time. The university has over 5000 trees for sure and there are almost 10 parking points on the campus. DAVV has one of the biggest track and field courts in Indian universities. From archery to basketball, the university has all the sporting facilities at the campus. There are 6 canteens at the university campus, but still the favored one is Indian Coffee House. Students of the university are given a 40% discount at IHC, which is built inside the university campus.
Life at DAVV was huge fun, and college fest Aakshank was one of the grand that you will see among the universities in Indore. Girls can enjoy their life with freedom as live and let live is the policy followed by management and other university students. I hardly attended the lectures but never forgot to go to the college on time was the impact that DAVV had.
