A good place to stroll about or go for a run and be amidst a few trees. I was there during summer break so all was quiet.

If there is an educational pride in the city, this would be the AUB. Even though there are several other universities that are on an equal level of academic studies, the AUB is a host to students from dozend os countries from all over the world.

AUB, has a secret that I can never explain. Only AUBites had the feeling of belonging to such a great university. Great experience

Scenic. Very impressive campus with its own beach. Can get very busy however, especially when classes break up. Well worth a visit in Beirut

Surprised by the beauty of a college campus as I've been to many. Reminded me of the beautiful William and Mary Campus in Virginia, US

I had the chance of studying at AUB for 3 years and I can say with confidence that it has the most beautiful campus in the country. It is very green with a lot of spaces to hang out and buildings that are charming and that merge with the surrounding ecosystem. I recommend the visit and would go back again... More
