As part of the Orientation and Welcoming Days of the Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU), a “Welcoming Night” was organised for the new students. Under the sponsorship of North Cyprus Turkcell the night was organised on 27th September at the EMU Ataturk Square.
A number of stalls were erected by different students clubs of the University where the new students had the opportunity to receive information and become members of clubs that caught their interest. New students and their families also had the opportunity to try traditional Cypriot dishes. In addition, the night featured the promotion of different faculties and schools as well as various sports competitions, stage performances and recreational activities.
EMU Rector Prof. Dr. Necdet Osam and Vice Rector for Student Affairs Prof. Dr. Sonuç Zorlu Oğurlu visited the stands and conversed with students. In his speech, Prof. Dr. Osam welcomed new students to the university and wished everyone a successful academic year.
Music Concerts by Ahmet Evan and The Healers were thoroughly enjoyed by the students who also had the opportunity to meet and socialise with other new students during the colourful night. Cultural dances were also presented on stage on the occasion.
The new students and families of some of them enjoyed the organisation. It provided them with a good chance to intermix with students from different countries and from different cultural backgrounds.
