Welcome New S​tudents

At the beginning of every academic year the University of Balamand welcomes students new and old. The welcome reception for students for the year 2015-16 was attended by deans, directors, and professors from the faculties and institutes, in addition to members of the administrative staff.

Those attending assembled in the Zakhem Auditorium. After the playing of the Lebanese national anthem, Dr Walid, Dean of Admissions and Registration, gave the opening address in which he referred to various university and student affairs, stressing also the role and importance of the Office of Admissions and Registration in forging and maintaining the relationship between students and the University. The next speaker, Miss Judy Metry, talked about the Office of Student Affairs, its services, activities, and the assistance and guidance it offered to students, concluding with a short film that illustrated some of the points she had made. Mr. George Farah then introduced a brief documentary film about the University, covering its various faculties, programs and campuses. Mr. George Dahdah was the final speaker, outlining the services provided by the Department of Finance in relation to both security and the payment of tuition fees.

The new students, accompanied by a number of old students, then went on a tour of the campus led by members of the ushering committee. This enabled them to locate the various faculty and institute buildings and laboratories, the central library, the student dorms and faculty housing. They were also shown the physical exercise and sporting facilities such as the gymnasium, the football field and the tennis, basketball and volleyball courts. Rounding off the welcome reception was lunch served in the Zakhem glass room in the presence of Dr. Elie Salem, President of the University, who participated with the students in cutting the welcome cake. ​​
