Foreign ExCHANGE?

Every year, foreign exchange remains one of the most hyped opportunities amongst sophomores providing them with a delightful opportunity to spend a semester in a new land. Amongst the many who apply for it (leaving out those whose grade sheets weigh too less in numbers to make them eligible for a semester abroad), only a few get through and the shattered dreams of the rest compel them to question the procedure and they do deserve an answer to “why not them”. 

Senior Survey

 

It’s that time of the year again when we say our goodbyes, a lot of them indeed. Some to our batch-mates who would be graduating and even more to our beloved seniors. BSP took a survey of the graduating class of 2017 to find out, for perhaps the last time before they’re out into the world, how they reflect upon their last four to five years of their lives spent at IITD. The questions ranged from academics to extra-curricular activities, from relationship statuses to porn viewership, from food preferences to many more exciting indulgences. Read on to find out more about what the one that leaves has to say!

The Placement Saga

Another Placement season. Another season of lucrative offers for some and heartbreak for others. Only this time around, there were a little too many heartbreaks. Far more than one associates with an institution like IIT Delhi . Despite 270 organisations offering nearly 400 job roles and 20 lavish international offers being tabled, the general feeling among the students, both the seniors and the juniors, is that of disappointment.

There was definitely a huge pressure on the placement season this year, considering heavy participation from 5th year dual and M.Tech students.

Why did the acid cross the road?

While this question may seem a bit absurd to use as a title, we promise you, at the end of this article, you’ll be able to answer this on your own. But before that, let’s talk about waste,and no, this is not going to be another article on sanitation. What we are going to talk about is disposal of waste generated in laboratories and research lab. Doesn’t sound interesting enough? Wait till you know what we went through in certain laboratories.
