Following photo is courtesy of _tunnel_. The photo was taken on May 14, 2008 in Malir, Karachi. Private educational institutions have become big business in Pakistan, but this picture is also about so much more. What comes to your mind when you see this?

East-West University Chicago Karachi

    Oh, Karachi campus looks like this :p I never though that hahaha… One thing I can’t understand, Malir is usually considered as the low-status area of the Karachi, why did they open that University in this area? If they were giving such a great name, they should have open it in some posh area, so people might think of being part of this University. Anyways, that’s CRAP!

    East-West University Chicago is in existence since the early 80s, and my Uncle Dr. Wasiullah Khan is the chancellor who did his doctorate from Indiana University. He along with my other uncle & his associates had embarked on starting its campus in Karachi as well but it never got recognition from HEC so as a last resort they had it affiliated with Educators franchise and ran it as a college. Now they have no involvement in this venture as it didn’t prove to be a success. I don’t know if the karachi campus is still in operation or not but its not a property of my family anymore. I had visited its campus located on Shahra-e-Faisal few years back but didn’t find it conforming to any standards, sadly.

    Sajjad,
    I think what the sign implies is that this is the same East-West university that is in Chicago (which there is), and this is there Karachi campus/branch.

    :)
