Teachers Students Center (TSC) is said to be the heart of Dhaka University. It is the focal point of all activities outside the Dhaka University academic schedule. TSC has a magnetic pull and everyday students as well as other people get drawn to the magnetic pull of the place.
Undoubtedly, TSC is the ideal meeting place for all DU students. Other students and people also come here to meet for ‘adda' or conversation. The atmosphere both inside and outside of TSC is marvelous. There is full green lawn inside and the tall trees.
The trees seem always to whisper something to one another. The beauty of TSC has been advanced by the magnificent sculpture "Aparajeyo Bangla". The gentle wind in the late afternoon brings the poet out in everyone. Furthermore, the poetic mood gets increased by the fantastic tea from the canteen nearby. TSC is the place where our parents used to hangout in their time, now we used to hangout here and may be our future generation will also do the same thing!
This superb place, TSC of Dhaka University, was established in 1966 with the financial support from the then Ford Foundation. The objective to create TSC was to discover a center where teachers and students would be able to interact outside classroom.
In its earlier period, there was a cafeteria, an auditorium, a rehearsal room, a film lab, a library, a reading room, an audio centre, art and music room, a swimming pool, a provision store, a bookshop and a bank.
However with the passing of time many of these facilities have disappeared from TSC. Now, there is no existence of the film lab, audio centre, swimming pool and the bookshop. And the more fact of sadness is that, the existing facilities are also not in great shape. The film lab was to introduce the students to the technical sides of photography. But now it could not continue living anymore.
Although TSC was established with a very modern concept of education, it is losing some of the existing competences. All the students of Dhaka University want to enhance the facilities of TSC. But it seems to be very difficult even to keep up the existing facilities in good condition because of low budget.
The swimming pool of TSC is also out of commission. The bookshop has disappeared as well. The authorities however said they were trying to increase the facilities in TSC. They have undertaken a project to establish a multi-storied building to add more facilities.
Nevertheless, TSC exists with some problems and limitations; it is the heart of DU as is stated before. It is still one of the most attractive, meeting and entertaining centers for teachers and students of Dhaka University. Not any single day, TSC is out of adda. So visit TSC to catch the taste of campus life!

The results of S.S.C examination were brought to light in 26 th June, 2008 showing on average pass percentage of 72.18 and securing 52500 students GPA 5.00. In spite of natural, economic and political crisis in Bangladesh , the talents are blooming rapidly in educational sector. It can easily understand by observing the record number of GPA 5.00 and the supreme pass rate of the history of Bangladesh.
The passed students, particularly who scored A+ are highly meritorious and promising future leaders of expected Bangladesh . There is no scope of denying the fact. Now, the dream of bright future is floating in front of there eyes. To ensure improved future, first of all it is necessary to confirm quality higher education. To say something about the acceptable higher education, at first come the name of public universities, Govt. medical colleges and engineering universities. But painfully true that the seats of the renowned colleges for the higher secondary level are only 18000 and approximately 25000 for higher educational level. The last year statistics show that the number of A+ candidates in each S.S.C level and the number of H.S.C A+ scores is almost same or close to semi liar students. This number is growing swiftly. In that case the H.S.C GPA 5.00 scorers may be 50000 in upcoming 2010. If it happens, at least 25000 A+ scorers will get deprived of admitting in public universities and Govt. medical colleges. This reality is ruder for other students. As majority percentage of Bangladeshi are poor or lower middle class, so it is nearly impossible to admit their candidate in the private universities. Every year it can realize easily by the true photographs of ‘Admission War'. When a large part of double A+ gainers fail to admit in accordance with their expectation, the fostering dream of ‘Bright Future' may fall in obscurity or hopes will be dashed forever. Failure of replying a very common asks, ‘Where have you admitted?' by parents, relatives, friends, neighbor etc. may welcome the ultimate frustration in their lives. As a result, this most precious, A+ will be treated to the students nothing but a curse. Despite of good results, if the students are not rewarded properly may lose interest about education. So the Govt. and the concern authorities should give the highest priority to create new, best quality public universities, to develop the standard of the national universities and to enhanced more admission seats for standing public universities as early as possible.
