Egypt Festival Final Day


CAC celebrates the rich, long, and fascinating culture of our host country this week. The festivities conclude today with assemblies, tanoura dancing, balady bread (baked on campus!) and Egyptian artisans sharing their talents and wares with CAC students. This is the final Egypt Culture Festival for our long time Egypt Culture teacher Dr. Jailan Abbas, and we want to take a special moment to recognize her contributions to this long-standing tradition at CAC. Dr. Abbas retires in June after more than three decades of learning, teaching, and sharing Egypt’s wonderful culture with CAC students. Her influence has touched CAC students who have taken her love for Egypt with them around the world...and some who stayed right here in Egypt. Click here for a story about a CAC alumnus, influenced by Dr. Abbas, who is now doing an archaeological dig in Egypt.
