From proper infrastructure in classrooms to effective grievance redressal cell for students and better placements, there are several issues that are being taken up by student organisations in colleges.

At SD College, Sector 32, leaders have been talking about the ill-maintained ground on the campus and the students who do not get to study in private colleges due to their financial condition. The leaders at DAV College insist on improving the quality of food offered in the college hostel.

The student organisations at the Post-Graduate Government College, Sector 11, have been demanding proper infrastructure in classrooms, extra co-curricular activities for students, disabled-friendly campus and an effective grievance redressal cell for the students.

At the girls’ colleges — MCM-36, PGGCG-11, 42 and Dev Samaj College, Sector 45 — there is a demand for more exposure for girls who do not come forward to actively participate in any activity.

Presidential candidate from SGGSC for women Sukriti says that girls from not only the city but also from the region come to the college to study. “It is the responsibility of the college to provide adequate coaching to such girls right from their entrance to first year. We need to have English-speaking classes in the college and it should be made a part of the curriculum so that the girls who feel hesitant to speak English could get required training,” she adds.

One of the nominated candidates from PGGCG-11 says that girls need a lot of exposure, especially those who do not participate in any activity on the campus. The college authorities need to bring them forward.
