As Egypt recently commemorated the 90th anniversary of the discovery of King Tutankhamen's tomb, archeologists unearthed the 4,500-year-old tomb of Princess Shert Nepti south of Cairo

The find proves that Egypt remains fertile ground for archaeologists and Egyptologists seeking to unearth its ancient history.

Egyptian folklore dancers
Saturday, December 1st, 2012
The dancers in their colorful outfits twirled around with their hands held high to the beat of the rhythm. The cheers from the crowd never ceased to end and only grew louder with each passing performance.

The Egyptian Folklore Performance was held on November 28 at the Bassily Auditorium at the New Cairo campus.

Coping with stress
Saturday, December 1st, 2012
As Bob Marley would say, "Don't worry about a thing, cause every little thing is gonna be alright."

Many AUCians would not relate to this quote nowadays; simply because they are worried about their mid­terms, thesis papers and project submissions.

Dina Meshref
Sunday, December 2nd, 2012
Dina Meshref, a freshman major­ing in business administration, won the Egyptian Fifth Settlements Universities Table Tennis Competition, qualifying her for the National Egyptian Universities Competition next March.

Meshref plays for the Ahli Club, Egyptian National team, and just this year started playing table tennis for AUC.

Fashion fest
Saturday, November 24th, 2012
Chaos erupted, people argued, designers disappeared, and some of the audience had already left before the show even started. The first Cairo Fashion Festival was about to get off to a shaky start.

People dressed in style and didn't miss the opportunity of arriving fash­ionably late. The catwalk, which was supposed to have started at 7 PM, began half an hour later.

AUC and Egypt representatives, Nermin El Shimi and Karim Khairy, did not come back with empty hands from the African Taekwondo Championship in Madagascar.

Khairy came home with a silver medal for the 74kg category in the African Championship, as well as a gold medal in the African Team Cup. El Shimi, on the other hand, made history by being the first female on her team to take home a gold medal for 46kg in the African Championship.

In every new country you visit, there is always a list of not-to-be-missed things to do. The same can be applied to some universities and AUC is no exception. The Caravan asked students what they feel are experiences every AUCian must undergo before graduating.

You must have:

Freshmen on campus
Sunday, October 21st, 2012
Loud, playful, irritating, and over-expressive are just some of the ways seniors at AUC's new cam­pus describe the nearly 1.000 fresh­men who have come to AUC this fall semester.

Seniors, in line with age-old tra­dition, have always looked down on freshmen for different reasons; some of them justifiable and others based on mythology.

Staff Strike - Photo by Ahmed Chedid
Sunday, October 21st, 2012
Every person at AUC is a part of a wider community that is inter-de­pendable. Staff workers and clean­ers are an integral part of the sys­tem, but how familiar are students with their daily lives?

Nesma Mohamed, for example, started to work at the dorms when she was 19, and for the past five years has followed the same sched­ule, making her way to work at 6am.

Alaa Abdel-Ghani in the 1970s
Monday, October 15th, 2012
Professor Alaa Abdel Ghani took me on a journey back in time as I adjusted my audio recorder to interview him about his experiences as an AUCian at the height of the 1973 October War.

Now an affiliate professor at the journalism and mass communication department, I watched him recall his college days and listened to

Cairo, a city that is over 1,000 years old, was originally developed in the late 19th century to be home to a maximum of six million inhabitants. Since then it has undergone numerous development and expansion projects becoming Greater Cairo, the 16th largest city in the world with a population of 18-22 million.

But as development projects focus outward with the establishment of new cities, there is a concern that downtown Cairo may be overlooked.

The Management of Information Systems (MOIS) team won the second annual School of Business Sports Day with an unbeaten record in a day full of heated competition between students, faculty, and staff.

Different colored T-shirts for each team were handed out to over 100 participants, students, and faculty, with 'In the memory of Omar Mohsen 8th May 2012' emblazoned on the front

Omar Mohsen was an economics senior killed in the Port Said post-match massacre in February.

Dina Rateb, a MOIS professor, was inspired by the team spirit that produced their victory.

More than 50 million Egyptians will be able to vote for a new president in a matter of days.

The election could be the most pivotal in Egypt's contemporary history as it is the first following the populist revolt which unseated former President Hosni Mubarak and his political clique.

But it also comes at a time of upheaval, political chaos, conspiracy theories and violence that continues to cost lives.

Some media pundits, such as Mona El Shazly, have wondered whether the election could be held as scheduled.

Thursday, May 17th, 2012

Presidential campaigning kicked off on May 1 paving the way for a flurry of slogans, party promises and propaganda designed to convince the electorate whom to vote for on May 23 and 24.

Among the tens of thousands of posters, banners and fliers throughout Egypt one finds "We'll Make a Dream Come True", "Up for the Challenge", "Project of a Nation", or "One of Us" in addition to other slogans.

"One of Us" was perhaps the first to emerge as the slogan of leftist candidate, Hamdeen Sabbahy.

The role of women has become a central theme following the January 25 popular uprising. Tens of thousands of women participated in the protests, dozens were killed; dozens more were briefly incarcerated.

How society views women came into full focus when the "virginity tests" scandal made headlines.

Samira Ibrahim, one of the female protesters who had to endure a "virginity test", filed a case against the military, which eventually resulted in the acquittal of the doctor who performed the tests.

A growing number of Egyptians are playing it safe, preferring to wait until after the presidential elections to decide whether to invest in local markets.

Many have cited the current political and economic instability as a hindrance to traditional spending habits and say these have curbed their choices to invest in industry, manufacturing and real estate.

For 30 years, AUC has hosted Egyptian antiquities from different eras of history, yet most students, faculty and staff have never seen them or even knew about them. The existence of these antiquities was only revealed to the public after they were stolen in late 2010 and the media publicized the theft. The Caravan has conducted an investigation into this matter.
