68 clubs participate in AUS Club Fair
In celebration of the cultural diversity at American University of Sharjah (AUS), the university’s Student Center was teeming with enthusiastic students at the Spring 2014 Club Fair, which was inaugurated today, February 17. This semi-annual event, which features 68 participating clubs this semester, introduces students, especially freshmen, to the diverse ethnic and interest-oriented clubs present on campus.
The fair, organized by the Office of Student Affairs, does not only introduce freshmen to the student-led organizations at AUS, but it also gives the students who manage these clubs the chance promote their organizations and spread awareness about their visions and activities. Organized by the Office of Student Affairs, the event features a competition among participating clubs for the best club booth.
The Club Fair was inaugurated by Dr. Thomas Hochstettler, Acting Provost, and Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, in the presence of other senior university officials.
“This is a good start to the semester,” said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs. “Our students’ enthusiasm is reflected in their creativity expressed through the various activities and exhibits on offer. The Club Fair provides an opportunity for our ethnic clubs to put their teams together and gather momentum for the upcoming Global Day which is in a month’s time. I thank our students for their efforts in making this event such a success,” she added.
The Club Fair will continue until tomorrow, February 18. The second day will also see traditional dance performances.
