Uttara University celebrated the occasions of Pohela Falgun and Valentine’s Day with a riot of colours, music, and festivity on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Vice-Chancellor Prof Lekha inaugurated the festival with a speech: "As spring arrives, nature is filled with the joy of new life. New leaves, flowers, and southern winds are all manifestations of nature’s very own love of springtime. It is almost as if spring greets us with the very purpose of decorating the world anew! My dearest students, who are the lifeblood of this university, have exquisitely adorned our new campus in the spirit of spring. I also wish that this season continues to motivate and inspire you to strive for greater heights and embrace fresh beginnings.”

The permanent campus premises of Uttara University were embellished with a diverse assortment of exquisite traditional crafts and vibrant decorations in observance of the festival. 

The atmosphere and ambience pervaded the campus. 

Throughout the two days, numerous Bengali traditional activities and performances were on display, such as a variety of dance and music acts, marionette shows, nagordola, raffle draws, and more. A soft launch of the Entrepreneur Award and Expo by JCI Dhaka Central was concurrently conducted on the university campus grounds.
