"The forum was about how we can use media in government. Speakers talked about the importance of using social media in government communications," said Hessah Al Samahi, a junior majoring in international studies.
"We are glad our students got a chance to be part of this prestigious and important event. The forum aimed to introduce the latest professional standards of government communication and to develop dialogue with opinion leaders, heads of government institutions and other officials," said, Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
