2nd Twitter Winners' Trip

  On October 10, 2019, we reported that the English Club went to Al-Souda for a camping trip. On that trip, students engaged in a competitive jeopardy-style review game. A select group of high performing students advanced to the finals, and though it ended in deadlock, a group of 6 students emerged as co-winners. On November 7, 2019, the 6 co-winners were awarded with an exclusive trip to an undisclosed location in Al-Souda. English Club Director, Faisal Al-Fadhil, led students to the precipice of the waterfall, where they spent the evening exchanging conversation, removing liter from the surrounding areas, and enjoying a traditional campfire dinner.   "The 2nd Twitter Winners' Trip was launched to reward those who follow our activities very closely and have the competitive heart to join our adventures," said Director Alfadhil. Vice Dean of Academic Affairs, Dr. Yahya Asiri, commented that the event was a worthwhile endeavor. Date: 11/8/2019 Source: Faculty of Languages and Translation

The Intrepid Adventures of the English Club

  On October 10, 2019, the English Club sponsored a camping trip to Al-Souda. Participating members went for a 10-kilometer hike into the mountains and spent the evening roasting marshmallows and exchanging stories of their academic careers. English Club Director, Faisal Al-Fadhil, supervised the event. He drove his 4x4 pick-up as a support and emergency services vehicle if needed. "This event was wonderful. We were able to combine physical activity, practicing English, and community service all at once."   Early the following morning, the intrepid adventurers did community service by spending several hours cleaning up trash from the trails and surrounding areas. Dean Abdullah Melhi praised the English Club for this worthwhile endeavor. Date: 10/13/2019 Source: Faculty of Languages and Translation
