This indicates that LPU is popular among the youth. This point is further supported by the admissions at the university from all across India. The university website, which possesses admission related information, has helped students in every corner of India learn more about us and make us their informed choice. This year a large number of students from South India have enrolled with us, reversing the trend which used to exist till a couple of years back. This is all thanks to the Internet and search engines like Google.”
