AUCA CHESS CLUB
The AUCA Chess Club was created to get people to play chess at the University. The Club encourages people of all levels of experience to play and offers a friendly, constructive, and social platform for chess enthusiasts. The Club sends also teams to the Universiada. To find out more about the AUCA chess club, we sat down and talked with Shaislam Shabiev, a freshman in the economics department and the head of the chess club:
 I was 7 years old when I first played chess. From that moment forward, this game was more than just an ordinary game for me—it was a space for self-expression. I can be an artist in chess, thinking up tactics and creating strategic plans, which I find incredibly rewarding. So far, I have devoted most of my time to playing chess. It is certainly more than just a hobby.

Aichurek Kadyrova: "For more than four decades in education - for more than a decade at AUCA!"
An AUCA student differs from other university students in many ways. The AUCA student is not a passive recipient of an educational system that is imposed on him, rather an active participant in the learning process. He/she is extremely responsible for his/her learning. Additionally, co-education of local and foreign students makes them friendly, tolerant, and enriches their understanding of the world.
