HEC upgrades Gandhara varsity
Peshawar, April 23, 2008: The Higher Education Commission (HEC) Tuesday upgraded the Gandhara University, says a press release.

Students throng book fair on varsity campus
Peshawar: The students of NWFP Agricultural University and other institutions on the Peshawar University campus thronged the three-day book fair that started on Tuesday.

Organised by the Islami Jamiat-e-Talaba (IJT), a student organisation, the event was inaugurated by Vice Chancellor of the University Prof Dr Said Khan Khalil. 27 stalls had been set up where books of various subjects, particularly agriculture were available on subsidised prices.

Separate outlets for female students had also been put in place. At the exclusively women stall, cloths and books were displayed for sale. While inaugurating the event, the vice chancellor lauded the efforts of the organisers. He said such positive activities were necessary for promotion of a positive environment for education in the university.

The VC said that he had spent most of the time of his life in the university as a student, teacher and now the vice chancellor, but he had never seen such a beautiful and well-organised programme.

He specially appreciated the separate stall for woman students. IJT University Campus Nazim Sohail Ahmad Baber Rahi said his organisation had always been arranging such events for the welfare of the students.

A book fair was arranged at the Khyber Medical College recently where medical, Islamic and general books and CDs were put on sale at cheaper prices for the medical students, he said. Similar events would be organised soon at NWFP University of Engineering and Technology and University of Peshawar, he added. The News
