Under the supervision of the Division of Student Affairs, the Core Program, the Prep program and the Campus Life organized the annual Humanities Week.
This year, the HWeek was led by co-chair Dr. Yazan Al Ghazo and set with six humanities and social sciences competitions open to all undergraduate students, day and evening schedule: Leadership Essay, Persuasive Speech, Dictation, Teamwork competition, Best short movie and Research Poster Presentation.
Moreover, lectures and workshops on leadership and Team work were also organized.

  • The Research Poster Presentation event focused on secondary data analysis where students - Abdullah Dakhel Aldakhil, Wahab Hussain Al Mohsin, Yousuf Alghazzawi and Ziyad Ghassan Alghamdi- presented their research organized and lead by the faculty member Alexander Woodman.
  • The objective of the latter was to engage future leaders to conduct and present their research in a non-traditional way, discuss their research results, communicate with fellow peers and learn from each other. Students were very excited and we all are looking forward taking this experience to local-national-and international research conferences.
