Before coming to the UAE, I had no idea what to expect. I didn’t even know what people here dressed like. However, my host university has some resources online. For anyone interested in the American University of Sharjah, or just curious about what university life is like in the UAE, here are some useful links.
- AUS Facebook Page A page with news on events at the university and a lot of videos.
- AUS Blog The university’s blog, mainly on university news. One interesting story is about a blind exchange student http://blog.aus.edu/bid/333589/AUS-Exchange-Student-Demonstrates-That-Nothing-Is-Impossible. He was also mentioned in this earlier blog entry.
