EMU 21st Spring Festival Cancelled

EMU 21st Spring Festival Cancelled

A tragic event took place in the district of Soma in Turkey where due to an explosion, hundreds of miners have lost their lives. Due to the severity of the accident, Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) and all its members are deeply upset.

Due to the declaration of the mourning period in the Republic of Turkey and the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, EMU announces that it would not be appropriate to continue with the spring festival between the 21st and the 24th of May, 2014.

After the meeting between the EMU Student Council as well as EMU student clubs, we have come to the conclusion that it is in the best interest of the university to cancel the 21st EMU spring festival  

May god have mercy on those who have lost their lives in the Turkey Soma disaster. We extend our deepest condolences to the relatives of the deceased
