Dhaka University authorities resumed in-person academic activities including classes and examinations on Sunday after more than 18 months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On the first day of the reopening, the students attended classes cheerfully maintaining health guidelines.

“I’m excited as physical academic activities have started again. The online classes were really boring,” said Md Titu Mulla, a third-year student of Philosophy department.

“We met our classmates after a long time. It was really good feelings. The students participated in the class maintaining health guidelines,” he added.

Vice-Chancellor of the university Prof Dr Md Akhtaruzzaman visited various classrooms and examination halls at the Arts Building on the day.

He expressed satisfaction as the students attended the classes in compliance with health guidelines and physical distancing.

The Vice-Chancellor claimed that cent per cent students of the university received at least first dose of Covid-19 vaccine.

He added that the Loss Recovery Plan formulated by the Academic Council of the university will be followed to compensate the students for the loss of education.

Earlier, the residential halls of the university were reopened for the students in two phases.
