After Harrigan, Melanie Standish to Leave AUI-S Soon

Student Eye has known from its sources that the director of International Programs and Exchanges office at the American University of Iraq-Sulaimani will leave AUI-S next week.

The departure of Melanie comes after the departure of the Academic Dean of Students, Dr. James Harrigan.

Student Eye had published extensive news and reports on the inadequacy and inability of the both names.

An expert told Student Eye that these sudden departures are signs of AUI-S's weak policy of hiring. Anyone who finds a better job back in the States leaves AUI-S directly.

“It is a cancer and it will always get worse”

“It is a cancer and it will always get worse” this is a status that Muhammad Babakr wrote on his Facebook wall. AUIS Financial rewards have been announced, and students have started reacting. Many students claim that their tuition fees have been doubled.

This comes after AUIS Financial Aid Committee finished reviewing students’ Financial Aid Applications. The results were sent to the students via email.

As soon as the results were announced, a battle to refuse the results began.. The battle has started on Facebook, and it seems that the former Dean of Students, Dr. Harrigan is not here to follow the events.
Students are not hesitant to show their concerns and call for “actions”. “It won’t stop, we have to do something” Nuha Othman wrote as a replay to one of her friends when she wrote “it increased too much!”

These cries can be heard from all Financial Aid students; a name given by AUIS to those students whom AUIS is paying part of their annual tuition fees.

“I can pay part of what I have been asked to pay” a student answered when he was asked; “Can you pay your 2010-2011 tuition fees?”

The list continues, but no one seems to listen. No change is guaranteed, but students can ask for re-reviewing their applications. More has to come and the fight on Facebook will prolong, and Financial Aid students are worried about their destiny in a case that they could not pay their tuition fees.

AUIS Dean of Students unfriends students on Facebook

After his departure, Dr. James Harrigan started to unfriend AUIS students on Facebook. In contrast of what students have thought about him, Mr. Harrigan acted irrationally. This comes as a shock for many students as he always pretends to be with them and they loved his covered simplicity.

"It was all a game and he used our Facebook status to follow the events, and he used all this against us in whatever steps we took." a students messaged Bahman Hassan when he first published this news on his Facebook wall.

Ironically, Mr. Harrigan seem to be pardoned for all the difficulties that he created out of not having administrative expericance. During his work at AUS as Dean of the Students, his office has face many difficulties that the source was his constant baseless accusations. The news of his leaving AUIS was welcomed by many thinking that, " the big man with his loud voice will not be here to shout anymore."
You may wonder why we want to publicize this news. There is no hidden goal behind this post other than shedding the light on this strange step by Mr. Harrigan.

For us, he as in many occasions, directly in person or indirectly, has shown his dislike of us. Though, Mr. Harrigan will not come back to AUIS, his news made many students to feel fooled. But "Song of the day" and "birthday wishes" by Mr. James will not pup up on AUIS students' Facebook walls.
