Founder’s day is a very special day to the NDU family. Each year NDU officials and students get together on the 11th of May in a large ceremony and festival to commemorate the beginning of their dear university.

This year NDU was celebrating its silver jubilee, 25 years, and for the very first time EWB-NDU was taking part in this big event along with 18 different clubs and societies. The theme for this year’s event was “once upon a time”, a fairy tale theme should be adopted by all clubs and societies participating. EWB-NDU chose the theme “the 4 engineers who changed the world” implying the four main sections in engineering: mechanical, electrical, civil and computer engineering.

On the EWB-NDU stand there was 2 main large posters made in a timeline format highlighting more or less on the evolution of the four engineering sections mentioned above. In addition, there was a car (made as a senior project by previous university students) placed in the middle of the stand. Furthermore, at the EWB-NDU stand there was pizza selling by “Norman’s Pizza” and all profits went to benefit EWB-NDU’s treasury.

As far as the entrance parade is concerned, EWB-NDU entrance was made in a show-off kind of way in order to reflect the contradiction between the appearance of well successful corporate engineers and their wild thoughts and imagination. Committee members, being all suited up with black shades and cigars, made their way to the stage in a black AMG Mercedes-Benz and a black Range Rover Sport in a “VIP” quoted way. Later, members climbed the stage on RnB music, stripped off their suits and performed a dance in their swim wear.

All in all, the entrance parade and show turned a lot of heads and made a funny controversy that many talked about.

As for the rest of the day, NDU continued celebrating its 25th anniversary with many singers, performers and DJs taking turn till 2:00AM.
