Journey of LUPS

On August, 2012 the Founder Md Shakir Khan, Senior Lecturer of the department of EEE officially approached the authority proposing a constitution for the society. As a consequence of this a photographic society named “Leading University Photographic Society” (LUPS) has officially approved by the university authority. Following a general meeting the Founder of the society then arranged an intra exhibition at the University to gather enthusiastic and energetic students in a common platform who has dedication in photography in order to run the society smoothly. Together with the Founder Convener Rezwan Ahmed Chowdhury, a student from the department of Law and other enthusiastic students, LUPS blasted an unexpected response, support and crowd at the very first exhibition “Mind’s Eye Photography Exhibition Season I” at Rabeya Khatun Auditorium in Leading University. The exhibition ran for 3 days from 18th November, 2012 to 20th November, 2012. At the ending ceremony of the exhibition on 20th November the LUPS got its first Steering Committee consisting of some real vigorous photography freak student. That where the enormous journey of LUPS has began.
