The Department of Student Activities is committed to enhancing the student experience outside the classroom by providing opportunities for student development through co-curricular activities that complement AUB's academic programs. The department of student activities strives to enrich the intellectual, ethical and social development of our students by engaging them in university and community events and by providing leadership opportunities. Our aim is to foster holistic student development. Students can become members in clubs, societies, student government, student publications, or outdoors festival.
The department plays a central role in the organization process for annual events like New Student Orientation, student elections and Folk Dance Festival.
All student activities organized on- or off-campus must be approved by the Department of Student Activities and the Dean of the Student Affairs. The department's role is to help in facilitating these activities and ensure that students are applying the event planning process. West Hall building is considered the student hub where most of student activities are held; in addition, to various AUB events sponsored by faculties, departments, centers, and alumni.
"Students must have initiative; they should not be mere imitators. They must learn to think and act for themselves--and be free",
