Thus, Cairo University students have proved that the university is not merely a place for demonstrations. Nassar has also pointed out that he issued directives to faculties and the Engineering Administration concerning establishing a theater inside each faculty at the university so as to enable students to rehearse their theatrical performances to create equitable competition among them as Cairo University is always the exporter of talents in all various fields (Scientific research – Music – Literature – Culture – Arts – etc…).
