- The day before the TSH, I tweeted about how excited I was to complete the exercise, not knowing what was coming my way.
- For our first question, me and Ahmed bumped into Firas Al-Atraqchi as he was making his way back to his office. Nonetheless, who better to ask about social media and its effect on social change. Firas used to work for AlJazeera, therefore knows a lot about social media and its power to bring about change.
- As we made our way outside the building, we found a group of students, who looked like they were prepping for a photography assignment. With little time on our hands, we picked a student, and asked her what sources she uses to get her news from, and if she uses any social media to do so.
- As we made our way to the Plaza, we couldn't help but notice the posters referring to an International Conference for Dewey And The Cognitive Sciences. AUC definetly offers many cutting edge research events, offering students opportunities to expand on their knowledge and understanding.
- We then walked towards the SU Cafe, because we thought not many students know enough information regarding their services and goods. They now serve Crunch'N'Scream, and of course, me and Ahmed got too excited about that.
- Of course, our hearts shattered into a million pieces after knowing we couldn't purchase any of the Ice cream cookie sandwich goodness before assembly hour. Not for long though, I immediately spotted a guy, that looked like an athlete to me, don't ask why. We ran towards him and asked him what sports team he plays for, and whether he likes it or not.
- School Spirit, something most AUCians don't believe in; we figured that out after countless attempts of asking students what belonging to AUC meant to them. So, we decided to pay the Caravan lab a visit, and there we found students using their free time to work on the next issue. Minatallah Abbas, a fellow classmate, is always there, and is always working hard to produce the best quality work for the newspaper. School Spirit at its best!
- Of course, as per usual, there was a que at Cilantro, and what easier way to answer the next question could there be. Here we have a student, Youssef Oraby, photographed at his favorite eating spot on campus.
- Oh wow, look at how beautiful the garden's at AUC are. The University puts so much effort in creating such beautiful landscapes and keeping the campus as beautiful as can be.
- This is Ahmed's favorite spot on campus; as you can see its pretty isolated. I gave him such a hard time walking to this location, but he insisted. When we got there, I was breath-taken by how beautiful it was.
- Not so far from Ahmed's favorite spot, is my personal favorite. I love l'aroma; their coffee, their chill spot, and the peacefulness.
- We thought, that we were done with the TSH, and rushed back to class to make sure that we were the first group back so that we could earn 10 extra credit points. The happiness didn't last for long, as we noticed we had to create a vine to answer one of the questions, and we missed that. So we ran back down to the Plaza, to find the Anti-Cancer Team setting up for their assembly hour event. The girls were so friendly, and were more than excited to do the vine.
- Wohoo, just two exhausted looking freaks after completing the TSH.
JRMC 2202 Twitter Scavenger Hunt
On Sunday, JRMC 2202 students at the American University In Cairo were asked to complete an excercise called Twitter Scavenger Hunt (TSH). For the TSH, we had to answer the questions provided to us by interviewing people on campus, and tweet about it using quotes and photographs.
