Near East University Students drew attention with their questions….
After an hour and half lasting presentation, Cemil Hafız answered the questions directed to him by the students. Önder Hansu, a student from Near East University, drew great attention with his question “As far as I know, you have a little son. And you work at a child-oriented organization. If we compare the process as before and after having a child, have you experienced any change in your attitudes towards your job?”

Answering that his life changed a lot, Cemil Hafız stated that he used to work so hard to develop more funds for SOS and he felt so sad when failed in any campaign before having a child. “However, after having a child, I realized that each campaign that we carried out, regardless failure or success, touched the life of a person” said he.

Underlining the crucial role of on-site applications regarding real life in raising well-equipped students capable to address the needs of the sector, Asst. Prof. Dr. Nuran Öze stated that they organized the extra-scholastic educational trip to provide the students studying at the Department of Public Relations and Advertising with opportunity to enhance their knowledge and experiences through training on-site.

Highlighting that they aimed to provide the students with platform with a training trip to SOS Children’s Village where they had opportunity to get to know that they would be able to involve in various sectors, Asst. Prof. Dr. Öze expressed her views regarding the issue: “Moreover, becoming aware of the fact that they can touch human life while doing their work is something that feeds self-consciousness. We will continue to organize various training trips each semester in accordance with the course contents” noted she.
