On the 8th August 2010, Bachelor of Real Estate (BRE) program of Daffodil International University (DIU) organized an Excursion at DIU site, Ashulia, for the students of first four batches. It was a sunny day in the mid summer. About forty students participated at the tour. The main goal of this study tour was to familiarize the students with the DIU plot of 10 acres, where the authority is going to establish a permanent campus of Daffodil International University. As real estate structures are directly involved in constructing a permanent campus, the tour was really with educative fervour for the students of the Department of Real estate. It is to be mentioned that, DIU is the first university to incorporate the Department of Real Estate with its mainstream of education.
The excursion was successfully ended. Mr. Masud Ibn Rahman, Head of the Department, Mr. Md. Abdul Kafi, Special Asst. to the Chairman, BOG & Mr. Yousuf Iqubal Chowdhury, lecturer, BRE led the team from the front. Mr. Ahemed Shamim Ansary, Administrative Officer of the university, coordinated the tour from beginning till the end.
The whole day program gave the students immense pleasure. They learned many things from the study tour. They were given a questioner to analyze the relevant issues by brainstorming. The students of Department of real Estate passed a jubilant day satiated by educative stuffs. The tour began at around 10 am in the beautiful morning from the DIU main campus and was furled up at around 7 pm in the evening when the two vehicles reached them at DIU campus again. The journey was not very distant and was away from the monotony of life, as the minutely transitory roadside phenomena thrilled them all together.
It is relevant to include that, DIU has purchased ten acres of plain land which is away from the hullabaloo of the overcrowded capital city of Bangladesh. The place is not very far and is bridged with good communication. It is a greenish meadow bursting with stunning landscape all around. After the establishment of the campus over there, students will definitely enjoy their study in the midst of that well-developed area.
It is hoped that, other departments of DIU will not like to keep them away so long to make tour to that place— where the establishment of their own campus is in the offing.
