AACD Holds Annual Senior Launch Event
The Office of Alumni Affairs and Career Development (AACD), Division of Student Affairs held its annual Senior Launch event to celebrate students who have achieved ‘senior’ class standing and are one step closer to graduating. Held in the campus’ recreational area, 213 students were called on stage where they received their alumni t-shirts, marking their spot as members of the class of 2020.
Among the event’s activities were the start of the official graduation countdown, live music by alumna Farah Bishara, and restaurants brought by Bilbayt.com—a platform owned by alumna Latifa Ben Eisa. AACD Director, Abir Tannir commented on keeping a connection with the students, “Seniors are ready to earn their degrees and become AUK alumni. For us, this is the time where graduating seniors start their endless journey with the Alumni Affairs and Career Development Office.”
The event’s atmosphere brought the campus community together in celebration of academic achievement and the upcoming graduation ceremony; English major Lara Jadayel described her journey leading up to this moment, “We all waited anxiously to become seniors. We all rushed our freshman, sophomore, and junior years convinced that life awaits us after graduation. We all wanted to leave. Senior Launch, however, made us want to remain AUK students forever.”
