Student Testimonials

"I think that OUR prepares young scholars for the competition that will come to face them should they continue to graduate school. The existence of such an office recognizes the importance of the undergraduate contribution to academia and for this I am truly grateful."
- Dalia Abbas

"I was privileged enough to go to a selective social entrepreneurship conference at Northwestern University to represent Heya, a student-run organization, thanks to a research grant awarded to me by OUR. Traveling to Chicago for the Global Engagement Summit was definitely one of the highlights of my undergraduate experience. Sharing ideas with social leaders helped me grow as an entrepreneur."
- Heba Hesham

"OUR gives undergraduate students a chance to expand their knowledge through research. It also encourages them to join international conferences and competitions. OUR certainly is an important asset to AUC undergraduate students and the community as a whole."
- Ramy ElAdli
