College life mostly revolves around the campus, rather than the classrooms. This is where we make memories; the long-lasting impression of our youth is etched in campuses, now that we look back at things. A good campus is as important as any other aspect of the college. Not only does it act as a center for college politics, extra-curricular activities, and college fests, but it also encourages students to stay for long hours in the college. Here are some of the largest and the most beautiful college campuses of Pune!
Savitribai Phule University | Ganeshkhind
What better way to kick off this list than to have our city’s university at the very start? Known to be one of the largest, if not the largest college campus in the city, Savitribai Phule University’s campus is practically impossible to explore on foot. Spread across 411 acres, the picturesque campus has a lot of students and tourists visiting it every year!
