ABU DHABI: A range of events and sporting activities were hosted on Wednesday by the Fitness and Athletics departments at NYU Abu Dhabi for the occasion of UAE National Sports Day.

The community came together on around the high-line on campus for a community walk to promote sports and physical activity in recognition of the nation-wide event. Students, faculty, and staff participated in the walk and wore t-shirts in one of the four colours of the UAE flag.

Additional activities were hosted by various facilities across the University’s Saadiyat Island campus throughout the day, including indoor cycling, meditation, kettlebell lifting and barre.

Two Abu Dhabi Inter-University Sports League finals in basketball and football were also held on campus during the evening, featuring the participation of NYU Abu Dhabi, the American University in Dubai, Abu Dhabi University and Khawarizmi International College.

NYU Abu Dhabi is the first comprehensive liberal arts and science campus in the Middle East to be operated abroad by a major American research university.

NYU Abu Dhabi has integrated a highly-selective liberal arts, engineering and science curriculum with a world center for advanced research and scholarship enabling its students to succeed in an increasingly interdependent world and advance cooperation and progress on humanity’s shared challenges.
