The beautiful Golden Retriever that was found on campus last week has been re-homed. We want to thank our very own American University of Sharjah Alumna Parmis Nadali, an avid animal healer and rescuer. Nadali, with her team, were the ones who found and rescued the Retriever, took him to The City Vet in Dubai and worked out to re-home him.

An eye for creativity and flair for innovation go a long way, and American University of Sharjah student Hinjal Kumar learned just that when she won Urban Commissions 2016, the annual design competition of Dubai Design District (d3) and Dubai Culture and Arts Authority. Initiated under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, Urban Commissions aims to engage with the creative community, whether students or professionals, in the UAE and promote its diverse industry. For its most recent edition, participants were asked to design a multipurpose public shelter that would serve as a meeting point for d3 while fulfilling functional, social and community roles in Dubai’s most creative area.
