About Dhaka University

     Dhaka University is the one of the best University in Bangladesh. It has a long influential history. History of Bangladesh and history of Dhaka University goes alone. It makes history all the time. Once it was called Oxford of South East Asia. It has various faces. It play a big roll in the every aspect of Bangladesh society, culture and politics of the region. It is a political play ground of Bangladesh. Sometime it brings good things for the university or over all country like 1969, our freedom fight 1971, fight for our mother tongue 21 February, and memorable 1991. Sometimes all these political issue makes only "Sassoon Gem". I know most of you are not familiar with this new vocabulary. But I believe this is the only draw back of the educational; system of Bangladesh. Only in Bangladesh all of a sudden educational institute  get close month after month based on political reasons with or  without  an  issue. But it is still the best institute there .This University provide it's student  various facilities. Before going there let me give you a brief review about this University.
