His Excellency, the Rector of King Khalid University, Prof. Dr. Faleh Bin Rajaa Allah Al-Solamy, expressed the intense feelings of national pride we are all experiencing. As a matter of fact, he commented, the achievements of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia over the last three years during the reign of His Royal Majesty King Salman bin Abdulaziz have been remarkably productive.  These results have found great resonance at the local, regional and international levels. Rector Al-Solamy said, "The observer with objective insight will recognize that HRM King Salman bin Abdulaziz has established the principles of justice and values of transparency and accountability in a practical manner. HRM King Salman, with his profound wisdom, transformed the values of justice and transparency from being merely theoretical values to actual values.” The Rector maintained that HRM King Salman's decisive decisions would bear gifts to the sons and daughters of this country and the future generations. He added the Kingdom, thank God, managed to remove the financial burdens that were draining the jewels of this country without right. His Excellency the Rector further stressed, “The most amazing thing characterizing HRM King Salman’s reign is that the hand of sustainable development continues to innovate while the hand of corruption is cut. In addition to this,  we are seeing the rapid initiation and support for promising projects. Above all, the desires of the wicked will diminish after they witnessed that the hand of justice will seek them wherever they are in a relentless pursuit led by His Royal Highness, Crown Prince, Prince Mohammed bin Salman. 

The University Rector concluded his statement by asking God the Almighty to perpetuate health on the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to continue his legendary pragmatic approach. He also wished success to HRH the Crown Prince.

The First Theater Festival for Saudi universities hosted by King Khalid University for five days came to a close that can only be characterized as a resounding success. The stage was set for the theater teams of King Saud University and Taif University to perform the final acts.

On the Mahala Campus stage, the theater team at King Saud University presented the play "Makassun" written by Khaled Al-Shuraimi and directed by Saud Al-Turki. The environment was set in the desert, which prominently featured Arab social life in the pre-Islamic era.

After the performance, the daily symposium was presented. Theatrical artist Rashid Al-Warthan spoke about the text of the play saying it is like "popular gossip” in an attempt to mirror the reality of this day and age. He indicated that "Makassun" means taxes taken by tribes from traders crossing their territory. As for the technical aspects, he said, "The decoration was not expressed in the desired format. The director did not create the display area as required, and the sound effects need to be further developed." Al-Warthan praised the performance of the students for their brilliant performance alongside excellent fashion choices made by the wardrobe designer.

To conclude, Dr. Mansour Al-Harthy provided constructive criticism, stressing that King Saud University is a pioneer at the level of the Saudi theater. He further related that although the performance was hampered by "numerous cognitive errors in the text of the play," it was still one to remember.
