At the beginning of the 2021-2022 Academic Year Fall Semester, Arkın Creative Arts and Design University (ARUCAD) started orientation activities for its new students, organised between October 20-24.
ARUCAD has started orientation activities for newly registered students between 20-24 October in order to support their adaptation to both the University and the environment. The orientation events, which lasted for five days, allowed not only the new students, but also the candidates who want to study art, design and communication at ARUCAD in the coming years, to get to know the structure and possibilities of the University.
Opening with a welcome speech, ARUCAD Rector Prof. Dr. Asım Vehbi addressed the students on the first day of the orientation:
“I congratulate you on your decision to come to North Cyprus and study art, design and communication, and I would like to promise you that as the ARUCAD family, we will ensure that you do not regret this decision. With the workshops, studios and laboratories here, you will have the opportunity to achieve whatever you envision in your imagination. While doing this, trust that your talent will be properly guided by your expert artist instructors. Create as you feel like, and don’t let anyone put a limit on you. At the end of each term, we organise our traditional exhibitions where your original works reflect your creativity. This will be a great motivation for you.
Events are scheduled for the next few days to make it easier for you to adapt to our University, the Island and your new friends. Don’t hesitate to have fun while making sure you have the necessary information.”
