Palestinian Culture Week Celebrated at EMU
Hosted by the Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) International Office “Palestinian Culture Week” organized by the Palestinian Students Society was recently celebrated with a range of events. Unlike previous years where a “Palestinian Night” event took place, this years’ celebration was spread over a week. The first event took place on Tuesday, the 24th of April 2018 with a campus marathon run by over 150 Palestinian EMU students. On the 25th of April approximately 100 EMU students feasted on local Palestinian dishes as part of the “Palestine on a plate” event organized by the Palestinian Students Society. An awareness walk took place on campus highlighting the problems being faced in Palestine.
