Students of the first batch made History in the Faculty of Arts, by organizing trips.
A trip was made to AA Thoddu, to explore and experience its rich cultural heritage of Dagaba.
Throughout the visit, the participants also observed social & environmental issues faced by the islanders, famous as the best watermellon-farmers in the country.
Later on a week-long visit was made to the neighboring Srilanka.
The visit included tours & sessions to Srilankan Parliament, Lake House & College.
It is expected that by the end of the program, the graduates will be ready to take any challenge in the field of Media.
All having interest in the same field, created an everlasting bond among the students and lecturers.
Being professional at the same time, Dean & lecturers always maintain a good rapo with DJ2010.
Students are always welcomed by them to discuss studies and other concerning issues.
The bond, especially among the students gave birth to a happy & a new beginning to some.
I am lucky to be one of DJ2010s, to hopefully graduate late this year.
