​AUB held its 151st and 152nd Commencement Ceremonies to celebrate the classes of 2020  and 2021 in-person for All faculties including FAFS.

​Under the continuing conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic, and applying all safety and precautionary regulations, the ceremonies took place on September 4th and October 8th on the Green Field and was livestreamed for family and friends. A virtual commencement was also held on October 15th for graduates who were unable to attend in person.

In his opening address, AUB President Khuri commended the resilience of AUB students and those who serve them despite the challenges that were faced by Lebanon, the university, and the graduates over the last two years.

“You have done so much, learned so much, lost so much and gained a part of yourselves in your time at AUB," said President Khuri. “Most importantly, you have gained and given hope. Never surrender that hope, that feeling of being able to make a difference. If you can keep that hope alive, secure in your craft and sound in your conscience, you will be ready to change the world for the better."

To the class of 2020 and the class of 2021, Congratulations and best wishes for a bright future!
