Under the sponsorship and support of the Vice-Deanship of Student Affairs of the Female Section at Al-Qunfudhah, the College's student clubs organized a range of interesting and valuable lectures and programs during the period from 10 to 14 Rabi` Al-Awwal, 1440 A.H. The following topics and activities were covered:

The Arabic Language Club, under the supervision of Dr. Shaliah and with the participation of the Arabic language female students at the College Annex, initiated a program titled, "Pleasing Others Means Pleasing Allah", as part of the "Be Happy" initiative made by His Excellency, the University President. The event included offering special presentations and poems, and the distribution of leaflets and brochures.

The Student Support and Guidance Office at the College also gave a lecture on the importance of “Role Models”, under the supervision of Dr. Sahar Al-Sa`di and with the participation of the female students of the Family Education Section. The office offers meaningful and beneficial programs that assist in engaging students in useful, personality-building activities.

Another program titled, “The Balance of Health and Fitness”, was initiated in collaboration with the Family Education and English Language Clubs. It was attended by Fitness Trainer Dr. Ohud, with the supervision and follow-up of Prof. Taqwa Bashah, Supervisor of the English Language Club, and creative students from the Club. The program began with a valuable scientific lecture on “Food” by Dr. Manal `Abdul-Hafiz, followed by a detailed explanation of the health benefits of physical sports. Students were also trained on how to use exercise equipment.

The “How to Be a Successful Leader” program was also launched under the auspices of the Guidance and Direction Office in the College. The implementation of the program was supervised by Dr. Sahar Al-Sa`di and the Islamic Studies Department female students. The program was remarkable as it praised and offered an admirable description of the honorable lives of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs (may Allah be pleased with them all), displaying how all the different aspects of their lives provided an ideal example and an inspiration to successful leaders. May Allah guide us to follow their path and adhere to the Sunnah of our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace). Pamphlets and gifts were distributed to students. Outstanding presentations, portraying some of the stories of successful leadership from the biographies of the Rightly-Guided Caliphs, were given.

On Wednesday, 13 Rabi` Al-Awwal, two lectures were delivered to an audience of the Religious Awareness and the Scientific Clubs. During the lectures, the College’s Chemistry Department gave a useful presentation on natural oils: their uses and benefits. The presentation was accompanied by the distribution of attractive educational pamphlets and posters.

Finally, the activities witnessed the initiation of the “Heavenly Encounter” program, under the supervision of Prof. Ruqiyah Al-Shaikhi and her students who formed the team “Good Words”, which was established with the aim of promoting religious and moral awareness. Leaflets and posters related to the same activity were then distributed to the attendants.
