With the theme of “Get Active, Get Involved,” the University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh (ULAB) organised an innovative orientation programme for the freshers of Summer 2013 at its own campus at Dhanmondi in the city Sunday.
Embracing the values of liberal arts, sustainability and active learning, ULAB expanded its orientation to a full day, with interactive and direct learning methods. The orientation used mixed media, video presentations as well as a hands-on games session to impart ULAB’s rules, clubs, library, career services, IT and other facilities to newcomers, says a university press release.
ULAB Vice-Chancellor Professor Imran Rahman, Dean of Academic Development Professor Brian Shoesmith and Communications and Students Affairs Adviser of ULAB Juditha Ohlmacher addressed the event and welcomed the newcomers. The programme was coordinated by ULAB's new Student Affairs Office along with the Communications Office.
The event ended with a concert performed by ULAB's premiere student band "Velvet Wings."
