UCD Celebrates Kuwaiti National Day 2018

28 February 2018

UCD was delighted to celebrate Kuwait National Day on Monday February 26th. Almost 60 students and staff gathered for coffee and cakes in the UCD's Global Lounge, a space that serves as the focal point for all international activity for students on campus. The students in attendance brought flags and festive pins from home and danced to traditional music. A highlight of the event involved all of the students joining together to sing the Kuwaiti National Anthem, a special moment that was subsequently shared with the students' friends and families through photos and videos.

UCD is very proud to host some 85 Kuwaiti students on campus and these celebrations reflect the strong relationship between UCD and Kuwait. The UCD National Day Series seeks to bring students together to celebrate the national days of various countries around the world. More information on upcoming events will be published on the UCD International Facebook and social media channels.
