Future Leaders Should be Responsible Now

by Mahdi Abdullah Murad 

Kurdistan is going through very difficult times. Every day we hear about the sad news coming from the different parts of Kurdistan.

Money Talks (4): The Unspoken Discrimination

Some of the American University of Iraq-Sulaimani students are sponsored and paid all the tuition fees necessary. Those who are sponsored are not required to get more than 2.0 GPA. So these students have the best chance to pass classes easily without bothering even to study.

A letter from Student Eye

Dear all,
