AUA Welcomes Visiting Students from the Diaspora During the Summer
Summer is always a busy period for the American University of Armenia (AUA). Each year the University hosts several visitors from the Diaspora. Young people gather from different parts of the world in their motherland with a desire to gain knowledge and ideas and share their impressions and experience, with their friends in their communities afterwards, aiming to promote love towards national ideas among the Armenian youth. Networking is one of the privileges among others that AUA provides.
This year, among AUA visitors were students from the AGBU Manoogian-Demirdjian School (Los Angeles, CA), AGBU interns from France, Canada, USA and participants of the Hamazkayin Forum.
At the same time within the framework of “Come Home” project, organized by the Ministry of Diaspora hundreds of young people came to Armenia from Russian Federation, Georgia, Abkhazia, the United States, Syria, Jordan, Romania and Canada in summer. During this summer AUA hosted 4 groups of young people from “Come Home” project.
“Summers are a great opportunity to introduce visitors to the university, its programs and facilities, as well as its achievements in creating an invigorating educational environment,” said Dr. Perouz Taslakian, AUA Director of Admissions and Recruitment.
A general introduction of AUA to visitors included a presentation on University’s history and future prospects as well as its academic programs, admission and tuition assistance procedures, and a tour of AUA facilities that enabled visitors to explore the University in greater detail.
