AUK Holds Annual Academic Showcase

The American University of Kuwait (AUK) held its Academic Showcase in April 2015. This annual event highlights the achievements of AUK faculty and students across varying disciplines through presentations, performances and displays. The Academic Showcase, which has been a tradition since 2005, offers a unique opportunity for members of the AUK community to share their accomplishments and come together to celebrate learning and collaboration.

Dr. Rawda Awaad, Dean of the College of Arts & Sciences, welcomed the attendees to the Showcase and thanked all of those involved in organizing it and noted the extraordinary growth of the event since its inception 10 years ago. She also praised the students who participated, and thanked them for continually reminding the community that sometimes learning goes beyond the classroom.

The Showcase covered a variety of presentations, ranging from visual artwork, foreign language trips, and recitals of prose and poetry. Additionally, the Showcase featured academic presentations by members of the faculty of the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department, as well as a short play entitled "A Singular Kind of Guy" performed by the Drama Department, and a musical recital. The Intensive English Program concluded the two-day event with a dramatic rendition of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, which included an unexpected dance number.

The Academic Showcase is held annually as a celebration of AUK's mission to "foster an environment encouraging critical thinking, effective communication, personal growth, service, and leadership."
