AUS Professor Dr. Nick Ashill running from Los Angeles to New York

Posted by AUS blog on Jun 21, 2017 9:00:00 AM

By Nick Ashill

On Sunday, May 14, I started off in front of Santa Monica Pier in Los Angles. I have now been running for over a month and on Wednesday, June 14, exactly a month after I started my run, I arrived in Albuquerque, New Mexico. So far I have run 1,484 km. I have run through California and Arizona, and I am about a third through New Mexico.

Blisters continue to be a problem, but this is to be expected given I need to average 50 km per day. So far I am managing to maintain this figure. My body is tired, and I am taking each day as it comes. The run is not about the 5,400 km distance. It is about 108 runs of 50 km each.

AUS, the best campus to live-in and study

Posted by AUS blog on Sep 11, 2013 10:00:00 AM

By Nour Al-Ali

Being a student at AUS is not just about studying, believe it or not. It is about becoming an active member of its community; developing it as well as developing yourself in the process. What I like about being part of this particular community is the distinct element of diversity present at AUS. No one would feel left out because there is a little bit of something for everyone. And even then, if there isn’t something for you, you could easily create your own student club.
