17 Moments Potterheads Will Relate To

Posted on 08. Mar, 2015 by in Opinion

17 Moments Potterheads Will Relate To


1- Walking across campus rocking a Hogwarts Crest T-Shirt









You know, and those silent nods of approval you get from fellow Potterheads.


2- Holding the books in the library








You’ve read the books a gazillion times but you still feel the need to hold the ones in the library for a little while, and maybe sniff them a bit.


3- Befriending people just because they’re Potterheads .. No questions asked












It usually goes like this: awkward smile, Harry Potter reference, omg flipping joy, omg you got the reference, another Harry Potter reference, friendship.


4- Being seriously jealous of someone’s phone case










5- And Deathly Hallows Necklace









6- Murmuring spells under your breath









I mean Lumos, Alohomora, Accio, Obliviate, and if you’re around an angry Potterhead you might hear the occasional Petrificus Totalus.


7- Not finding Butterbeer on the menu

Hello Cilantro? Coffee, Mocha frappé, Butterbeer what’s so hard about that?


8- Seeing someone with a Harry potter ink







9- You can never lend people your class notes to photocopy.

Just go through our notebooks, I bet you’ll find the deathly hallows symbol, quotes and lightening bolts all over the place. We even scrawl over the text, so good luck photocopying that.


10- HP references in class










“What an idiot” is always on the top of your list of snarky comments.


11- And witty comebacks

12- Always using Hermione to prove your point.

Do I need to say more?


13- Blabbering about Pottermore

Where were you sorted? What’s your wand core? How long? Did you brew that potion? Did you solve the riddles?

14- And serious discussions

15- Also the dirty side looks you get







Yes I’m a college student who’s obsessed with HP and always will be, problem buddy?


16- People getting confused when we tell them they should never tickle a sleeping dragon.

Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus, obviously.


17- It’s real for us



The scene featuring AUC in “Al Morafa’a” was not authorised by the University.

Posted on 15. Jul, 2014 by in News


The producing company of Al Morafa’a tv serial had not approached the American University in Cairo (AUC) in any manner to seek permission before featuring the University in the show, Ms. Reham Saad, Director of Media Relations in AUC, confirmed to The Insider.

Ms Saad was surprised by the role that AUC played in the serial, saying that it was “completely unnecessary and a lame attempt to enact our graduation ceremonies.”

“We even call the ceremony commencement rather than graduation!” She added.

According to Ms Saad, this is not the first time a production has breached the rights of the university, referring to the movie صعيدي في الجامعة الأمريكية (Saidi Fel Gam’a El Amrekeya), where the producing company was denied permission to film on campus, however, they went ahead and used the name of the university.

“The approval is discussed by different committees; however, the first thing I ask is how would it affect the university? If it is not adding to our message as a university nor our image, then frankly it is a waste of time,” Ms Saad  explained.

On behalf of President Lisa Anderson, Ms Ranya Boraie, chief of staff in the president ‘s office, said that this is clearly a copyright infringement and that the issue has been transferred to the Office of Legal Affairs.

Unsurprisingly though, The Office of Legal Affairs is keeping the investigation process hush-hush and we are yet to hear from them what kind of actions are to be expected.

Ramadan’s new series Al Moraf’a (المرافعة), starring Bassem Yakhour, has used the brand name and logo of our university in its first episode.

The scene, that depicts a graduation ceremony in January 2010, focuses on how an NDP senior member is getting a special treatment and allowed to get through the metal detector though it beeped.
What do you think is the appropriate approach for the situation?

The English version of this article  The English version of this article

الجامعة الأمريكية بالقاهرة معتادة على الأضواء. فقد كانت الجامعة الأمريكية جزءاً من العديد من المسلسلات و الأفلام سواء بالاسم أو بالتصوير داخل الجامعة.

من بين الأمثلة مسلسل «الجامعة» وفيلم «صعيدي في الجامعة الأمريكية». وقد كان للجامعة هذا العام في رمضان نصيب من الظهور على التليفزيون لمدة ثمان دقائق.

فقد تضمن مسلسل «المرافعة»، بطولة باسم ياخور وفاروق الفيشاوي، في حلقته الأولى مشهداً لم يتم تصويره في الحرم الجامعي بالجامعة الأمريكية بالقاهرة، ولكن أظهر شعار الجامعة واسم الجامعة بشكل متكرر.

المشهد يصور حفل تخرج دفعة جديدة جرى في يناير عام 2010. ويركز على السماح لعضو بارز في الحزب الوطني بالمرور عبر البوابات الإلكترونية دون تفتيش بالرغم من إطلاقها صفير الإنذار.
