I completed my bachelor degree at the American University of Beirut and my Masters of Business Administration at the Lebanese American University. I’m proud to have graduated from these two prestigious academic institutions, and it’s great to see both of them still evolving in these troubling times.

The Lebanese American University is celebrating 100 years this year, and a documentary was aired yesterday on MTV sharing 100 facts about LAU. One of the fun facts few people know is that it only became LAU in the 90s, despite being around since 1924.

Check out the documentary and some old pictures of LAU below:

LAU is born as the American Junior College for Women (AJCW), headed by the 29-year-old missionary Frances Pryor Irwin as its first principal.
