Best College in DU for English (H)

Miranda House is the best thing that could have happened to me. Besides academics, MH taught me to be a woman of the world, instilling the right set of ethics and ownership to be a good leader, manager and a responsible citizen. The college encouraged me to come out of my shell and face the challenges head-on.
