Former students of Dhaka University's English Department will gather for an annual reunion on Friday to share old campus memories.
The annual bash by English Department Alumni Society (EDAS) is organised on the last Friday of January every year.
It will be held at the usual venue -- the Teachers and Students Centre (TSC) on the campus.
Organisers said graduates, from as far back as 1940s to as recent as last years, are expected to join the event starting at 3:00pm.
The alumni can register themselves online (edas.com.bd) or on the spot. The general members have to pay Tk 500 each, Tk 800 for a couple, and life members Tk 400 for the get-together.
The year 2016 also marks the 95th anniversary of the founding of the English Department, which has been around since the inception of the Dhaka University in 1921.
EDAS offers scholarship and awards to the deserving students of the department. Names of the recipients are announced on the last Friday of January, coinciding with the reunion ceremony.
The society also plans for a river-cruise on the Buriganga River with the alumni and their families in February, said one of the organisers.
