It goes without saying that most of the Arab leaders and intellectuals in this region are graduates of the AUB. It is a highly recommended institution for all sorts of specialities.

Coming back to my Alma matter evokes memories of years past. The beauty of the campus is unsurpassed. The view from upper campus towards the blue Mediterranean brings joy to and nostalgia to the years past. Meeting old friends makes this unique place even rarer. This is the best place in the east for education and cultural diversity.

This is a pleasant pace for a stroll and a sit-down as there are plenty of benches in the park-like surrounds. It's an especially good spot for cat lovers as cats abound, mostly quite friendly and happy to be stroked. It's a good place to pause on the way to the sea front.

Nice walk inside a compound very clean and green. Historical buildings, large library and the feeling that academic study still count. Original established as a Syrian university. Trees very old and big complete the atmosphere.

Beautiful, tranquil, gracious gardens full of lovely cats, a world apart yet part of Beirut. Walk there and all around and then down into Ein el Mreisse and to the seafront.
