AUK holds 9th Annual Awards Night

The American University of Kuwait held its 9th Annual Awards Night in the AUK Auditorium. The event commenced with a welcome note from AUK Interim President Dr. Nizar Hamzeh followed by an awards ceremony for AUK staff, faculty and students. Each department awarded their most worthy student employee in an effort to recognize their hard work. The Student Government Association, in return, awarded faculty and staff for their support.

The Vice-President of Student Affairs Dr. Carol Ross-Scott commented on the ceremony saying, "AUK Student Awards night celebrates the engagement of students in activities outside the classroom," emphasizing that student programs and activities such as student media, athletics, curriculum related organizations, service clubs, and leadership bring the university experience to life. "Involvement compels our students to push the boundaries of excellence, academically, and in extra-curricular activities. We want our students to be better prepared to serve the competitive, global society and awards night is where we highlight their achievements of the academic year," said Dr. Ross-Scott

The highlights of the evening were the Student Affairs' Award, the Founders' Award and the President's Award. The recipients of these awards were students who have shown exceptional academic achievement and involvement in activities outside of the classroom among other criteria.
