The Eastern Mediterranean University recently organised a Libya Day, at the Rauf Raif Denktaş Culture and Congress Center.
The event was organised to introduce Libya and Libyan culture to students from other countries. The Libyan students of the university did their best to exhibit their culture on this night. The participants were served special cocktails and Libyan food.
An exhibition featuring photos from Libya also gathered the interest of the participants.
Following the Libyan National Anthem, President of the Libyan Students’ Association Sadeq Elfaituri delivered a speech and thanked all firms sponsoring the event. Thanking EMU administration for supporting the organisation of the event, Elfaituri relayed his special gratitude to EMU International Office for their valuable contributions. Elfaituri also advised Libyan students to maintain their cultural values and respect the rules of the community in which they are currently living.
Following the speeches, theatre and dance shows took place. The event came to a close after the successful members of the Libyan Students’ Association and those who contributed to the event were presented with plaques of appreciation.
