Leisure Activities & Student Clubs 

Within the University, student life is rich and varied with activities to cater to almost all talents and interests. The University has a tradition of encouraging social activities that are consistent with the educational objectives of the Institution and in response to the interests of students. All students are encouraged to take part in these activities. Student activities are organized by various Student Clubs. Students interested in participating should contact the Office of International Student Club. Clubs offices are in the central building. Besides the activities of our student clubs, well-known artists and pop-stars are invited to our university, too. Every year in May Festival, students get the chance to show their abilities by taking part in such as concerts, theatre, folklore dances, animations etc.

      During the periods of the years  2002-2003  and  2003-2004 in total of 4 chess  tournaments have been arranged and many rewards have been donated to our students.

      Until now there are 25 recorded members  and there has been a significant increase in the number of members during the years. Free chess lessons , getting licence and participating in tournaments can be counted among our activities. The first 3 competitors are always awarded to participate in competitions among  all University students in Turkey.  


     Brigde is a hobby game, which is played by millions of people on earth.

     Giving  free brigde courses by experts should also be counted among our club activities.

     One of our main goal for this year is to arrange the first Bridge tournament between our students.

     One can easily find books and documents about Bridge in any where and it could also be possible to learn the game by reading too but this will take a long time for sure, so the most popular and practical way to learn Brigde is to watch the experts of this game.
