I thank the university for such a cooperation and I express my full belief that this cooperation will increase and develop.
The whole world is facing a dangerous pandemic. We will overcome this pandemic in the best way possible. As long as we continue our work in the ways that scientists recommend, let’s not go out of their way. I would like to thank you again and again, I emphasise that we will meet with our students and teachers on healthy days and we will do great things together with ARUCAD University”.
ARUCAD Board of Trustees Chairman Asst. Assoc. Dr. Sinan Arkın said; “Our aim is to contribute to the development of the region by expanding our university in Girne City Center. We are working to make all the contributions we can make to our city in terms of art and design. Cooperation programs with our Municipality are very important to us. I would like to thank Girne Mayor Nidai Güngördü and his team for sharing the use of social and cultural facilities in which the Municipality has invested heavily ”.
ARUCAD Rector Prof. Dr. Asım Vehbi said; “First of all, I would like to thank Girne Mayor Nidai Güngördü very much. Being intertwined with the city has been one of our most important visions since the day we were founded as ARUCAD. We feel that we have accomplished this with the warm behavior of the Girne Mayor and we work together with our artists, academics and students to achieve many projects while being intertwined with the city of Girne,”
