Summer is here and the hard work is here too. The students are busy with their exams. The faculty are busy with grading and preparing next academic year's programs. As usual, all on the campus are getting ready for the graduation ceremonies - completing their work and preparing publications to show what has been accomplished and what will be done in the future.Students Affairs leadership is not only preparing for the commencement ceremonies - to be held July 11 and 12 - but also getting ready to host dozens of high school students during July and August in a summer educational and entertaining program aiming to invest the summer time in a useful way. The initiative is moving forward, and it looks like it will be a great experience to live and witness on the QU campus.Another scene on our campus that attracted attention recently was the graduation of those who completed their Arabic learning courses in QU's Arabic for non-Arabic speakers program of the College of Arts and Sciences. The graduates of this year were 44 students from more than 15 countries - Americans, Koreans, Nigerians, and other nationalities. The program coordinator Rasha Abbas pointed out that the program represents a bridge between Arabic-Islamic culture and other cultures from all over the world, East or West. Students graduating in the ceremony were eager to express themselves in Arabic, even in poems: how much they had learned over the past year, loving both what they learned and the place - QU and Qatar - where they have had the chance to meet others and communicate with them in Arabic. One of the Arabic program students last year was the Indonesian Ambassador to Qatar. A few months ago, at an event held at QU's library, the Korean Ambassador told the attendants that more than two decades ago he was in QU learning Arabic.Turning to publications: students working at "Droob," the student-run electronic magazine, are celebrating the launching of their first edition in June 2007, and are also working hard these days. They want to guarantee the emergence of the coming issues during the summer time. The talk of a print edition is still in the air as well.
