GUST Celebrates Kuwait’s National & Liberation Days
GUST’s Office of Student Life, in collaboration with the Student Association and Student Clubs organized a three-day celebration across its campus to honor Kuwait’s National and Liberation Days. The festivities launched with a campus decorated by lights and illuminated structures representing the country, and the national anthem performed by the National Boy Scouts. The campus was active with a full program of activities allowing students, staff, and faculty, to show their appreciation to Kuwait.
What’s more, the outdoor area was decorated with flags and hosted a variety of restaurants catering to the GUST community. ArtSpace, a local art gallery and studio, was also on site and allowed students to paint a Kuwait themed mural, as well as fun activities such as henna painting by the Technology Club, and a gaming diwaniya was set up by the Anime Club. In addition, national musical groups Dayim AlSaif and AlQurain, brought in by the Human Development Club, entertained the students during their break time over the three-day period. The event also included various screenings, performances, scavenger hunts, competitions, and a seminar highlighting successful Kuwait personalities.
The three-day event concluded with a major highlight - a national day tap dancing performance using a customized GUST song specifically celebrating and honoring Kuwait. The song was performed by Abdulsalam Mohammad, while the dance was enacted by Backstage Group. The full video, directed by Abdullah Al-Arrak, can be found on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_H3cNOaT4J0.
