A procession by the KSU graduates before the graduation ceremony.

King Saud University (KSU) rector Badran Al-Omar exhorted the fresh graduates to live up to the expectations of the leaders of the country and excel in whatever they do.

He was speaking at KSU’s 54th graduation ceremony, which saw high-level participation and inspiring speeches motivating the outgoing students to take up challenges and prove that the courses they completed are worth it.

Riyadh Gov. Prince Faisal bin Bandar and Education Minister Azzam Al-Dakhil were among those who attended the ceremony organized at the General Presidency of Youth Welfare recently.

The two leaders extended warm greetings to the students, wishing them every success in their professional life.

Congratulating the students, Al-Omar said: “You are the future generation of our country. This is your country and no one will be faithful to it but you; therefore, prove to our leaders that you are ready to take up challenges and show your creativity and training.”

He also urged the graduates that their value won’t be measured by certificates, but by their ability to make a difference in society. “This is the real challenge. Accept it. Those who believe that success is merely finding a job need to ask themselves: How many employees are there in the Kingdom? How many names are well-known? You need to be one of those names if you want a life worth living.”

The KSU rector said the university has developed a number of programs and procedures by emulating successful international experiences.

“These developments have transformed students into partners in learning, decision-making, idea generation, publishing and entrepreneurship,” he said.

Al-Omar said the steps taken by the KSU are in accordance with its role in developing Riyadh and the Kingdom and we affirm that the university will remain one of Riyadh’s supporters for the development of Saudi Arabia, the implementation of its national mission and its anticipated role in making a marked difference in society.

The ceremony began with a procession by the graduates, followed by recitation of verses from the Holy Qur’an.
