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.

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!

A Success Story : Inter-IIT Aquatics 2016

Recently, IIT Delhi Aquatics team came home to a hero’s reception. And deservedly so. After all, they have made us proud in this year’s Inter-IIT Aquatics Meet held in IIT Kanpur.

Every team works diligently in a quest to improve until it reaches the pinnacle of sporting excellence and this year’s result shows that IIT Delhi’s aquatics team is marching (or should I say swimming) on the right path. Last year, IIT Delhi Boys’ swimming team secured 5th position and this year they secured the 3rd spot.
