Lahore College For Women University - LCWU Lahore

Nobody can deny the significance of Lahore College. LC is the priority of so many girls to get admission there after their matriculation. Lahore College holds the ranking as one of the top colleges in Lahore. Students have to work really hard to get admission there as the merit is very high, especially in sciences. It has enrollment of around 6500 girls. I have been to LCWU once to attend an event. I liked the preparation and control over there. The student councils are really effective there. And girls who wants to be at LC, beware of the “mobile restriction”, very strict rules prevail in LC regarding not using the cell or even having it in college premises. But the campus of LC will charm you the most, vast grounds, huge and well constructed buildings, wide and airy classrooms but with one flaw of not being air conditioned.

LC got the status of university in September 2002, since then it is now known as Lahore CollegeWomen University. LCWU has got A-class reputation regarding its studies at inter level. They generate results through devotion and dedication of their teachers’ and hard work of students. The students of LCWU snatch many prominent positions in Board. But unluckily, LCWU has not been able to secure the same reputation for their degree programs. Their degree programs are not valued that much hence does not occupy good market place. The reason, which I have realized is that they are new and they do not have the required professionalism, knowledge and experience regarding degree programs. They do not have well established internship programs for their Business and commerce students. Their first batch of Honors program is not out yet, but output is not expected to be up to the mark. And the future is also not certain, students can only ‘hope’ for the best.

Established in May 1922 as an Intermediate residential college, it was housed in a building on Hall Road, Lahore. In 1950, the college was shifted to the present building on Jail Road, which was originally a school known as Sir Ganga Ram High School and Teachers Training Centre. At the beginning, it was affiliated with the University of the Punjab. B.Sc. classes started in 1955. Post-graduate classes in 1966. The defining moments in the history of the Institution were when granted Administrative and Financial Autonomy on 1st August 1990, acknowledged as a Degree-Awarding institution on 13th August 1999 and was elevated to the status of a Women University10th September 2002. on

As one of the oldest female institutions of Pakistan and in the 87th year of its existence, the University has approximately 6,500 students and a teaching faculty of more than 325 members. It admits students at the Intermediate, Degree, Master and Ph.D. levels. At the moment Botany, Chemistry, Physics, Zoology, Mathematics, Economics, Statistics, Electronics, Environmental Science, Computer Science and Pharmacy are taught at Graduate and Master Levels in the faculty of Science. English, Urdu, Punjabi, Islamic Studies, International Relations, Political Science, Fine Arts, Pakistan Studies, Mass Communication and Gender and Development Studies are being offered at the master level. At intermediate level this constituent College of Lahore College for Women University is affiliated with the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Lahore for the purpose of curricula and examination.

On talking to a fellow at LCWU I got to know how the students at LCWU perceive about their institution. She said that class rooms are good and wide having white boards but no air conditioners. Computer labs are ok but internet is not available sometimes and they have to face problems, but these are air conditioned. They do not have common room in their department, Ummmm!!! On asking about environment she immediately said, its quite strict and daunting like not to wear trousers, not to bring cell phones etc. Studies are average not so good. Some teachers are very good and professional and some are new and average. Overall she was like “its fine”.

Besides facilitating the students with good studies, they do have other facilities with complement the students in their studies. Like facility of HEC digital library, university’s own library, book bank, computer labs. Besides that sports grounds and all sports equipments are available and students are encouraged to take part in these activities. Lahore College for Women University has also provided transport facility for its students in all over the city. Overall, students in LCWU are facilitated in goods manner.

Intermediate done from Lahore college women university holds great value, as students generate results and get admissions in top class professional colleges and universities. This is evident from the fact that majority of the female doctors serving and retired have at some stage (F.Sc. or B.Sc.) studied at Lahore College. But LCUW lacks repute for is graduation and post graduation programs. LCWU is not standing out at university level.
