For all those who think Ravenshaw is just another god for-saken place without a campus-life, think again!
Here are some of the coolest hangout points in the campus.
1. Commerce Block:
The reason why we go to college (I am sure you would agree there are better things to do than attend class).
A dusty shady place in the block where people park their bikes and scooters, sit on them and chat for hours at end.
There is an aquaguard inside the block to quench your thirst just a few steps away. This place is amazing except for the times when you might bump into some teacher who knows you.
We seriously don’t know why it’s called the backfield, the reason maybe that the field is at the back of the campus.It is one of the hangout points in college which is very crowded.
Some guys hangout here as it is the ideal place to check out girls from the hostel.There is a pavement encircling the ground and lined up with golgappa(gupchup/puchka) stalls.
Nothing beats the joy of finding a “khatti” where teachers would hardly be visible.The amphitheatre is one of the best hangout spaces in the entire college.
This place has its disadvantages though, during the harsh summers you would get enough tan to last a couple of years.
4. Mileage Check
This place doesn’t have a name. It’s this place lined with trees and it got its name Mileage Check road due to the number of speeding engines.
5. Front Lawn:
Late afternoons might be a better time to hit the place to seek solace from the summer.
Ravenshaw University came into existence of 15th November 2006. It was an upgradation of Ravenshaw College established in 1868. It is one of the oldest and largest autonomous colleges of India.
