Remians are the graduates of Dhaka Residential Model College, a college in Bangladesh. Students of the Dhaka Residential Model College (DRMC) are called Remians. The term is regarded as a prestigious designation held by graduates of DRMC. Remians founded an organization in Bangladesh known as ORWA, the Old Remians Welfare Association. Remians who are living in Canada have formed Remians Canada to increase the fraternity among the remians living in Canada.
