College life is one of the most wonderful phases that we come across. The 3-4 years of college life is something that all of us have cherished. Usually college campuses are bigger than schools and there are various departments where students can pursue courses of their choice. You’ll also find playgrounds, canteens (bigger and better than your school canteen), libraries and above all, ample places to hang out inside the campus when you have your classes off or you’re in a mood to bunk!
Unlike school campuses, where you’re sure to get punished if you get caught hanging around in the campus, nobody questions you when you hang around in your college campus, unless you bump into your professor whose classes you have been bunking lately! Some college campuses in India are so alluring; it seems that they came straight out of fairytales. In case you are wondering which college campuses are those, we have compiled a list of 15 most beautiful college campuses in India
