|Claude Magniers Blaise on Stage
Bilkent Department of Theater
students are currently performing Blaise, a 20th-century French play (in Turkish
translation). The production premiered on March 4 in the Faculty of Music and Performing
Arts Building. The play, originally in three acts, is staged in two acts in this version.
At the premier, the production favorably impressed the audience, thanks to the successful
performances of the student actors and actresses.
Blaise is a comedy that deals with a universal theme: although people will do almost
anything for wealth, in the end what really matters is love.
The play never loses its focus on this ethical dilemma, at the same time as it makes the
audience laugh. It shows how, in the end, the purity that exists in each of us can
overcome false values and unethical behavior, and that love can bring about this
Additional performances of this relevant and enjoyable play, performed by the young actors
and actresses of the Department of Theater, will take place March 11-18 and
April 1 and 15.

Campaign Helps Diyarbakır School
Last month, Bilkent University Student Council and Kulüp Başkent joined
forces to organize a campaign to assist a school in Diyarbakır's Bismil district. With
the support of Bilkent University and the enthusiastic participation of its students and
staff members, school supplies and equipment were collected at Bilkent on February 24.
These included 96 student desks,
5 large desks, 2 boards, 15 boxes of books, 15 boxes of clothing, and sporting goods.
On February 25, the items were sent to Diyarbakır, and Bilkent Student Council President Ali
Savcı, Kulüp Başkent Chairman Şeymus Arslan, and Student Council
Vice-President Erkam Çömez, along with their friends Tanfer Türemen and İsmail
Lekesiz, went to the school. There, the district governor and the school principal
welcomed them, and the students eagerly accepted the materials.
The children's smiling faces were the greatest reward for the Bilkent students efforts.
The school principal reflected that these students, like other students all over Turkey,
want to be educated in order to become responsible citizens. This kind of campaign,
therefore, contributes not only to a specific school, but to the future of Turkey as well.
Student Council and Kulüp Başkent are planning another campaign to collect school
supplies for next month. Additional information will later be published in the Bilkent
Fair, which will take place this week on Thursday, March 10, is a great
opportunity for you to meet with representatives from different companies, and learn about
