As many as 95 freshmen have started their undergraduate careers at Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q). The incoming class – NU-Q’s 10th – is the largest and most diverse with students from more than 25 different nationalities.
About 56% of the class is Qatari and there are 10 new nationalities joining the NU-Q student body: Algeria, Gambia, Lebanon, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Syria, Tanzania, and Ukraine.
“Welcoming the Class of 2021 in NU-Q’s new building is a major milestone for us,” said Everette E Dennis, dean and CEO. “Our student intake has grown from 38 students in 2008 to almost 300 undergraduate students today. Our newest class will join their fellow classmates in learning and exploring in an incredible new building which includes a newsroom that rivals leading network newsrooms, high-tech production studios, multiple editing suites, a black box theatre, and a two-storey library.” New students at NU-Q are attending an orientation session this week and will join the rest of the student body next week when classes begin.
