    How real people said about Delhi Institute of Rural Development - DIRD.

    “ My college life has been a package of fun, happiness, celebration, friendship, education, learning, knowledge, teacher-student relationship and what not! As i said, good things happen in a wrap of time; these were the three years that hardly went away as if they were just three days. Talking about the love that I have received from the college is in abundance! Be it the friends, seniors or juniors, teachers or the principal; everybody is so kind, generous and polite to have a word with. The staff of the college i.e. the teachers who are the sole foundation of a college's well being have truly lived up the value and the meaning attached to the word "Teacher". They have taught amazingly well and have guided me throughout my studies. This is the only reason for the marks that I have received in my exams. The ambiance of the college has been so quiet and serene that studying in the college campus seemed more pleasing than studying at home. The well maintained libraries are the epitome of a good level of education that is provided in the college. I'm proud to be a part of "the name of the college" and will always miss the memories that I have gathered here! ”

    “ Being a Graduate from Rural Development (D.I.R.D) in B.com(H). It Feels great to be a part of such a wonderful organisation . I am currently Working in Quatrro as a senior executive of NCS .I am very greatfull to all the teachers who built enough confidence inside me. The faculty is pretty good and helpful, provided that the student is willing to learn. What I have learnt in my 3 years in this college is that you don't really need to be a genius or study regularly to score well in the exams. The college crowd is pretty decent as compared to other IP colleges. ”

    “ I entered these very gates with a fair knowledge of the world but still deep within I felt there was something missing. My journey here has been very eventful and has personally filled in every gap I felt missing. We not only get facilitated with a course but get accustomed to mingling with the broadest spectrum of people; indeed peer learning has been the focal point of my education here. Ever increasing number of companies come year on year to make their pick. I found my dream job and couldn't have asked for more."”
