Why was PSNI formed?
After conducting an initial survey with the current student body of PISES- Riyadh, we realised that most students agreed that there were gaps in the current available sources and the needs of outgoing students. Some of the survey results are included below.
Below is a brief description of how we currently operate. The Event Organisation department organises events for the student body, and the marketing department establishes student relations to increase outreach. Each department has a small group of volunteers that work under them. The Alumni Network Department is made of directors from both departments, an focuses solely on building a database of alumni (for further information see the alumni network page)
