The AUB campus is a very nice place. It has green fields and museums. It is right across the sea and was a little quite this summer.

The architecture of the university is very nice. The space is considered as a big one comparing to other locations in the city.

Unique architecture with beautiful surronding nature. It is really nice to have a walk through the gardens and enjoy the sea view from the top.
