"The experience of being a part of an organization since the very first day can't be expressed in a few words. For the first two years, I saw UE grow from an idea and a mere concept, to one of Delhi's biggest youth media network. The platform brought hundreds of youth together and channelled their collective drive into one common vision: to grow, to deliver and to bring a change. Apart from instilling in me the work ethics; and making me understand the nitty-gritty of the media business, UE acted as a platform where I could synergize my passion and conviction into something impactful and compelling. More than that, UE is an organization where you live beautiful memories of working together and growing together. UE, for me, is a hub of fostering friendships, exceptional teamwork and cherished brotherhood; and above all, it's about being exclusive." - Sankalp Mathur

"August, 2012 Two of my friends (Rishav and Sankalp) were brainstorming to build an e-magazine for the University of Delhi. Soon, I joined these two brilliant people to build this powerful platform for the student community. I had been with UE for 2 years and have experienced it growing from a small community of students to this giant student platform catering to multiple Indian universities. That was the time to experiment and UE has always helped me do that. Working with so many talented people and building UE was one of the most beautiful experiences for us undergrads. I just cannot express in words what those 2 years have made me learn. I can just say, the entrepreneur in me took birth because of UE. This is the power of UE. The journey has been wonderful and shall be cherished for life." - Siddharth Vij

"The day I got selected for the post of a columnist at UE, I thought to myself "Great, now I can use my love for writing and do something productive while in college". Little did I know, it would become the most defining thing of my graduation years. University Express has given me more than I can ever be thankful for. The journey from being a columnist to a content head is something words can't express. UE made me grow, it made me learn and it made me meet and work with the best people and team(s). UE acted as the perfect platform to express my writing skills during my days as a columnist and later acted as the best possible way wherein I learned from the best co-founders and enhanced my leadership and managerial skills. The 3 years of University Express made it so hard to say goodbye. I will never find the right words to explain what it means to me and what it did to me. But I can say for sure, it was the best damn decision ever." -Chaitali Aggarwal

"2nd February 2013 The email read: ‘You have been selected for the post of a columnist at University Express.’ And my life changed. At that time, I didn’t know it would become my home for the next two years but I am glad it did. From a columnist to the Editor-in-Chief, I wear it like a badge to this day. You cannot say goodbye to UE, it comes back to you, even after you're gone, to say that it remembers you and loves you. A part of me will always, always stay here; juggling with work, brainstorming with the creative minions, chilling, roaming, all happy and ecstatic. It gave me some of the best learning experiences and the joy of lasting friendships. I smile as I look back at those two years, which remain the highlight of my graduation. UE is home and will always be." -Suhani Arora

"I do not think I can ever talk about DU life and not mention University Express. It will be wrong to call my association with UE just an internship, it defined my identity, knowledge and more than anything else, it’s been the place I call home. I cannot thank UE enough for introducing me to the best set of people and giving me the opportunity to be a part of such a cool tribe. Having worked in multiple roles in the organization, I can easily say that the first lessons of whatever I know today began during my tenure here. One of my personal favorite takeaways has been learning to dream and not just that but being passionate about it." - Kanchan Bisht

''I joined UE in my first year. Being chronically lost and not knowing what to do (as always), I thought I could spare some time for a seemingly good media house which was spreading its wings across the University. I, too, like everybody else, had an option to go for interning at established firms but luckily decided against it. That time, I didn't have much idea about the 'work' that I was signing up for. But it seemed exciting and I went for it. Today, when I look back, I think that it was one of the finest decisions that I have taken in my college life. There are organizations that help you grow professionally. There are organizations which appeal to you personally and give you a sense of belongingness. UE, somehow, was able to fit itself into both. I didn't even realize that I was bunking classes, delaying my projects, missing important college society meetings and what not just for UE (Family comes first, you know and UE was one). The good thing about UE's culture is that the work is not pushed down your throat. It gives you time to settle in and then motivates you to take initiative and actually work in your domain. I had never thought of getting this level of cross-dimensional exposure at that stage of my life. I don't think words could do justice to the type of experience I had at this crazy company. How I miss those days! PS: I still have the notes that I took from my first meeting as a memorabilia." -Achaman Agrawal

"Being a part of University Express was one of the highlights of college life for me. I always liked reading and writing, and UE gave me the platform to do just that! The two years I was a part of UE, I learned tremendously, and enjoyed myself thoroughly. This place gives you complete freedom to express your ideas, pull off campaigns all by yourself, and whenever you are confused (about work or even life in general!), talk to other UEites! I loved the autonomy given to me, first as a columnist, and then as a Proficiency Editor. The best part about UE is the team, which is absolutely brilliant and extremely cooperative. Every day is an endeavour to innovate and improve here, regardless of the department you are in. Chances are that if you join UE, you'll make friends for life." - Madhujot Madan

"For about 1-1.5 years, I had been a part of the UE team and it was an incredible experience. I was taken aboard as a columnist and later became the zonal head of a fully developed and rigorous project – BADLAAV. I believe it was a step forward in achieving our objective - a movement calling for a change in the general mindset of us all in the country. After having worked with UE, I feel that it is important for all of us to acquire the skill of making people know that you are concerned about their problems and make them comfortable enough to open up and voice their worries so that we can work upon those issues and assure them of a brighter future. UE not only gave me an opportunity to rise and change the world, but also helped in my personal development. Although I am not a part of UE currently (as I wanted to go for law), yet I keep myself updated with the current happenings and feel proud to have been a part of it." - Rhea Luthra

"University Express came to us as a knight in the shining armour when we were really close to hating college. So, we have to admit that 2 years in UE made our college life the roller coaster ride that we miss even today. Having juggled multiple roles of columnist, photographer, sub-editor (Shruti), & creative head (Savi), we think we got the best of all worlds! And we can't thank UE enough for the first experiences, free desserts, the funny bones, the brainstorming over pizza sessions, best lot of people and a whole lot of reasons to bunk and do something even better than lazing in lectures. How UE somehow always managed to push us closer to our whims and fancies with just the right kind of work and people is something we won't be able to express in words alone. So this is just one of the many tries at it. And as we always say- When we spell love, We spell UE." - Shruti Maheshwari and Savi Garg
