Within the Steps to Academic

Student Affairs at the University of Bahrain (UOB) organized a lecture for
students, entitled: “University Life Between Academic Achievement and
Extracurricular Activity.” which aims to develop students’ skills in
various fields through several activities.
The lecture was presented on the
virtual communication platform (Microsoft Teams) by the Assistant Professor at
Department of Information Systems at College of Information Technology, Dr.
Resala Abdullah Al-Adraj, in which she talked about the concept of student
activities, the role of activities in developing social responsibility and
hobbies, and the impact of extracurricular activity on social relations, in
addition to its impact on the cultural level.
Also, Dr. Al-Darraj stated that
student activities are the link between the university stage and the labor
market because they help students develop the skills required in the labor
market, and train them to take responsibility in completing the tasks assigned
to them and that
extracurricular student activities provide an opportunity to build positive
relationships and experiment with different types of personalities.
