Wednesday, Sep 25, 2019
Hundreds of Ajman University (AU) students from over 70 nationalities have celebrated their diverse cultures, communities and talents as part of the Fall 2019 Club Fair.
The two-day event, inaugurated by AU Chancellor Dr. Karim Seghir, saw the presence of a large number of faculty and staff members, and over 1,900 students from all colleges.
The biennial gathering, held this year under the theme ‘Amity, Engagement & Innovation’, spans 89 booths - 50 for men and 39 for women; all providing a precious opportunity to know about the culture of all nationalities on campus.
Buzzing with excitement, laughter and ‘make it happen’ spirit, the enticingly-decorated booths, seeing 29 more kiosks as compared to last edition’s 60 clubs, reflect students’ creativity and diversity.
Held in the beginning of every semester, the AU Club Fair is aimed to enlighten students, mainly new ones, about the multinational and interest-oriented clubs.
Briefed about the idea behind each club, Dr. Seghir encouraged all students to keep developing their talents and actively share their cultural and social interests through these clubs.
“The event reflects the diversity of Ajman University recognized by the QS Intelligence Unit with the highest possible ratings of ‘Five QS Stars’.”
“Ajman University’s commitment to internationalization is evident with full points in international faculty, international students, religious facilities and international diversity.”
Dr. Nahla Al Qassimi, Dean of Student Services, said these clubs help the students express their interests, talents, hobbies, cultures and traditions. “The student interaction was so inspiring.”
