Lively atmosphere on first day back at the campus

In-person classes resumed at Chittagong University (CU) on Tuesday, following its reopening after a closure for a year and a half due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Students boarded shuttle trains from the city to the campus at between 8am and 9 am. Earlier on Monday, the university's residential halls reopened.

However, regular classes and examinations of the university will be suspended during the admission tests for first year students. The tests will be held from October 27.

Inspecting the residential halls ahead of the reopening, CU Vice-Chancellor Dr Shireen Akhter said: “We will do our utmost to ensure hygiene. Students will be requested to stay in the halls peacefully. In addition, there are plans to take one day off a week and hold extra classes to help people catch up.”

Teachers and students are happy with the resumption of in-person classes after 19 months. The atmosphere on the campus was characterized by optimism and enthusiasm. 

Shahriaz Mohammad, a student of the Bangla department of CU, said he had been waiting for a long time to return to class.

“We followed hygiene rules on the campus. It feels great to see friends after so long. There is a big difference between online and in-person classes,” he added. 

CU Bangla department Associate Professor Mohammad Sheikh Saadi said teachers were looking forward to resuming in-person classes as well. Students were lively on the first day back.
