Last week marked this year’s phenomenal Week of Welcome (WOW), a five day event from 18th October to 22nd October 2009. It aimed to welcome students of Dubai International Academic City (DIAC) and Dubai Knowledge Village (DKV) into their premises. A range of fun filled activities were organized by the Student Hub, an official representative of the student body at DIAC.

WOW opened with a Student Orientation on the 18th of October, where official speakers from DIAC and DKV welcomed students into the campus.
