Just Be Average

My sister was wearing an AUK shirt today



it says on the front Be a C student ...











on the back it says



Cool


Civil


Confident


Comical


Credible


Creative


Caring








AUK

Learn Think Become



i think they ment:

Learn just enough to pass

Think like everyone else

Become average!



Shino Be a C student!!

please tell me the C stands for something extraordinary at the university!

Couldn't they come up with words beginning with
A!




Be an A student??

Advanced

Amazing

Attentive

Awesome

Astounding

Admirable

Amicable

Adventurous

Accurate


and these are off the top of my head!

I'm sure they could have come up with a better motto instead of just be a C student!

whatever happened to high expectations!

LOL, am thinking now of the B & the F lists of words... top of my head bas not "blog" material!

I woulsn't wear the t-shirt nomatter what they gave me!

You have a good point! but I think they wanted to this shirt to be attractive and gets people's attention!

In my opinion, I think it's cool and funny... :D

August 30, 2007 at 2:25 AM  

i think the whole idea of the t-shirt is bad, just change the concept bala C student wala A student!! :S baas u have a point

yaboon e3teraf ba3ad.

August 30, 2007 at 3:54 AM  

be a kuwaiti :P

August 30, 2007 at 4:16 AM  

hmm

never thought of its impact..

August 30, 2007 at 5:37 AM  

That could go with ACK not AUK. :/

August 30, 2007 at 7:04 AM  

its an ad just to attract students...telling them you dont have to be smart to attend our university...we accept anything basically!!!!

August 30, 2007 at 8:05 AM  

They didnt mean it the way you did.. its an American things since Harry Truman once said, "The C students rule the world."

But really! Dont say that in Kuwait! Mo nagseen LOL

August 30, 2007 at 9:02 AM  

i'm C Student
C for claver which i'm
C for clean which is me
and C for Creative and Cool thats totally me.

and when i look at it after graduation it doesn't make any different for me between A and C.. it's about what you can do with what you have learn.

August 30, 2007 at 9:47 AM  

lol
good point :p

August 30, 2007 at 11:05 AM  

lol,you're right but I think they wrote C to get more attention :)

August 30, 2007 at 12:14 PM  

Well, if they said A student it would not be a joke (however poor a joke it may be). Be a C student:
Complain
Cram at the last moment for exams
Come out of the closet in philosophy class.
Cringe at bad t-shirts.
Cry when you get your results.
Chloroform that girl you fancy.
Copy all of your projects.
Cease ironing, followed by all levels of laundry.
Clothe yourself like a homeless person, to be honest.
Contemplate quitting from week 7.
Call your Mother no more than once a month.
Change all of your old friends of convenience for new ones that you have chosen from a larger sample.
Cut class.
Cut your hair funny.

Hmmm. This is difficult with the letter 'C'.

August 30, 2007 at 8:37 PM  

I think it's all about the sarcasm. lol

August 30, 2007 at 11:58 PM  

I'm still not getting it !

August 31, 2007 at 12:24 AM  

Well I think u are correct. They need more creativity. But what to do some people just think in their own perspective and don't use team work in this damn country :P

August 31, 2007 at 12:24 AM  

Lmao..Omg..Wow..good message, i agree with it wholeheartedly

August 31, 2007 at 2:46 AM  

Are you sure the university itself gave out these t-shirts? They could have been designed by a student. It just doesn't make any sense for a university to encourage an average grade!!!

Lol @ shale

August 31, 2007 at 3:06 AM  

wow that was creative wala :P bs the first thing that came up to my mind was " losers " i mean yeah whats with the BE AN A STUDENT ??? gone with wind i guess !

August 31, 2007 at 3:56 AM  

looool i think they wanted it to attract attention that's all.. y3ni if it says be an A student, hmmm 3adi.. but be a C student is eye catching :)

it's nice i think..

August 31, 2007 at 10:35 AM  

Sadly AUK is more into money, and half the students are there for non- educational reasons if you know what i mean.

August 31, 2007 at 1:36 PM  

Min 9ejhom !!!

August 31, 2007 at 3:16 PM  

chikapappi
lol
maybe theres some kind of hidden message in it!

rekoo
yes, but AUK is a university, not a comedy club, they give u the shirt with the application package, and it aint encouraging anyone serious !

shoosha
ya whatever happened to the good ol uni sweaters with just the school logo on em!

enigma
loooool!!

um-mit3ib
haw eshfeena!

ray

August 31, 2007 at 4:25 PM

canc3rain
hehe

i dont think it requires alot of team work to figure out C student isnt exactly the way to advertise for a university
" come to our uni, we dont expect much"

lilacs
lool
ya sure u would!

magical droplets
yes u get it with the application package, along with a notebook and a pen

Navy girl
im sure they ment to be creative, and in a diff. setting it would have been, bs for a university its just not good

reem
ee bs its not the right kind of attension, especially not to someone serious about going to a good school

blue dress
wallah i dont know much about the school
i just saw the shirt and found it odd

Glam
apparantly

August 31, 2007 at 4:37 PM  

Being an A student is better! :-p

August 31, 2007 at 5:06 PM  

American education was never that inspiring!

August 31, 2007 at 5:44 PM  

Yo ;**

LOL well yeah i very much agree with you, they encourage their students 3ala il laziness. Maybe the percentage of people failing is huge, so they said at least yeebaw C :P


anyways, welcome back :**

August 31, 2007 at 7:25 PM  

Good point.
But I love it :D it's cool.
Zain ma galo Be an F student :)

o I just thought of this, some students cant get higher grades than C, even if they try sooo hard "and I know many".. So this t-shirt kinda lifts their spirits :D

Don't you think?

August 31, 2007 at 8:58 PM  

enigma loool

leave it to eshda3wa to put some simple sensibility into daring mottos.

September 1, 2007 at 12:01 AM  

looooooooooooooooooooool :)saa7 ur absolutely right!

September 1, 2007 at 1:21 AM  

I think they should make t-shirts for everybody..C students, B students, A students and even F students. I'd definitely buy the F student. I never got that grade in my life.

something for everyone. ;)

September 1, 2007 at 7:48 AM  

elmathal egool "med reeylek 3ala gad el7afek" and i guess that's what they're doing ;)

September 1, 2007 at 2:17 PM  

LOLL 5o mayaboon i7ab6oon il3alam :P tamsheen with a be an A student o ur failing :P la o ba3dain 7ata the C wont be good enuf lakin if ur goal is the C then a D isnt that far away from ur goal o tkoneen rathya 3alaiha :P

September 1, 2007 at 2:38 PM  

lolz esh hatha wallah min jed why C students y7a6mo al 3alam :P

though i think the shirt is nice and cool :D

September 1, 2007 at 3:03 PM  

Think there's another purpose to this shirt other than the C refering to the grades..
maybe AUK students are just not cool, caring and civil enough.. so they gotta start with that.. :S i dunno..
but thats funny..

September 2, 2007 at 8:42 AM  

be a c*** obviously...

September 2, 2007 at 9:11 AM  

I say the school should wear a t-shirt saying, "Be an R Educator"

Retard, Retard, Retard, Retard, Retard, Retard...

Seriously, why didn't they just add Cute, Cuddly, Confused, Cucumber.. errr!

September 2, 2007 at 10:07 AM  

Criticizer LOL ur soo right:P

eshda3wa lena they didnt really come up with it ! they took it off the internet I'm sure of this fact.

They should really add to it "be Copy cats"

September 2, 2007 at 1:35 PM  

LOL LOL LOL - isn't this a bad message for the A students of the university if everyone is wearing a t-shirt saying be a C student and ... ironically enough the university actually endorsed that t-shirt?

i think the t-shirt is a flop, dont really know what they were thinking when they came up with it!

so lol totally agree with you!

September 2, 2007 at 3:18 PM  

No one likes A students anymore. Everyone prefers the C people because they typically engage in a lot of things during their university life than books. So typically they are more life-absorbing and understanding than the book wormers

September 2, 2007 at 3:39 PM  

poor F students ?
what would they be ?!
lol
but they just wanted 2 attract people and tell them even if they are (c) they got many features and they have 2 be proud lol

September 2, 2007 at 6:17 PM  

LOL!
they say there is no such thing as a bad publicity =P (and I don't fully agree with that) but it could be applied in this promotion tool which is the tshirt!
If it got our attention than it sorta worked =P

September 2, 2007 at 8:36 PM  

lool 7ada a kuwaiti motto ;p

September 2, 2007 at 9:56 PM  

amjad

sawrwar

dynamic deeds
ya but it got the wrong sort of attension, would u go to a school that only encouraged u to be a c student?

pearls
7ada lazy not kuwaiti ;)

September 2, 2007 at 11:56 PM  

its a fun t-shirt! thought it was cute.

but if this is an official university / education institution t-shirt, then it just sends the wrong message.

i was a F student - fun, friendly, fantastic....

September 7, 2007 at 5:29 PM  

its a very nice ad actually, it had an impact on all of you, good or bad which is good, if it was be an A student it would be boring and dull.
