     Fahad Alajmi ’22

    From the ancient birthplace of Islam to the modern world’s top producer of black gold, Saudi Arabia again moves to center stage with a new plan for the people: Vision 2030. Fahad Alajmi ’22, graduate student in business, will discuss the beginning of a new era for the Saudi people at the first Global Insights program, Thursday, September 16, 2021 at 11:30a.m.., in the Rose Room, Brennan Hall 509. Cultural cuisine will be offered at the luncheon event. This is free and open University community members. Registration is required. Click here to register.

    Fahad Alajmi is studying for his master’s degree in business administration. He serves as the Saudi Student representative on campus. He earned his undergraduate degree in accounting from Cedar Crest College in Allentown, PA. Alajmi says he misses his family, hanging out with friends at the coffee shops and the food and coffee in Saudi Arabia. The coffee is different than what we are used to here as the beans come mainly from Yemen. The Coffea Arabica beans are grown at higher altitudes of 3,000-6,000ft and roasted for a shorter amount of time which increases the caffeine content.

    Alajmi is looking forward to sharing the Saudi culture, including native dress of the men and women and one of his favorite foods – kabsah.

    This program is being offered by the Office of Global Education, the Cross Cultural Centers, Residence Life and the Office of Equity and Diversity. For more information, please contact international@scranton.edu or 570-941-4841.
