Mobile financial service Nagad has become a part of Dhaka University's centenary celebrations.
"On the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the university, we requested Nagad to decorate our campus while maintaining academic rules. Their effort is admirable. They showed how to decorate the campus with an academic flavour in an innovative way," DU Vice-Chancellor Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman said Sunday.
As part of the celebrations, Nagad Managing Director Tanvir A Mishuk handed over the wristbands for DU students to Dr Akhtaruzzaman during a programme at the Nawab Ali Chowdhury Senate Building today.
President Abdul Hamid, who is the chancellor of the university, inaugurated the four-day celebrations – themed "Dhaka University in the Light of Centenary" – on December 1.
The administrative building, Teachers-Student Centre, student dormitories and various installations of the university have been decorated with commemorative photos.
DU, which started its journey in 1921, completed its 100th year on July 1 this year. But the centenary celebrations were deferred due to the pandemic.
