SACM Leaders Celebrate Semester’s End With NU’s Saudi Student Association
The Saudi Student Association at Niagara University held a daylong event Dec. 2 to celebrate the graduation of 21 students.
Dr. Abdulghani Alharbi, assistant cultural attaché of the Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission, offered the afternoon’s keynote address and then was joined by the Rev. James J. Maher, C.M., president of Niagara University, to present certificates and sashes to the graduates.
Earlier in the day, SACM dignitaries, which included Dr. Alharbi, Dr. Abulaziz Albrithen and Mr. Said Khiti, were treated to a tour of campus, had lunch with university administrators, faculty and students in Bisgrove Hall and participated in a Jumu’ah congregational prayer with Saudi students living in Western New York.
The dinner celebration took place in the Statler Dining Room of St. Vincent’s Hall. It was coordinated by SSANU members in conjunction with NU’s Office of International Relations.
