​​​​Dear FAFS Students, Faculty and Staff, 

Welcome to a new Academic Year! 

To our new students, I welcome you to FAFS and commend you on your choice to join “The Faculty of Firsts". ​

Leaving a loving home and family to a world where you have to make your own path; there is another family waiting for you within the confines of AUB to help in shaping your character and personality... a family at FAFS that has your welfare in mind. 

This is a major stepping stone in your life. Effective this moment you are an AUBite. As an AUBite, you automatically will receive a great education, and you will be guided and trained to make qualified decisions that will affect you and the community you live in and hence the world. Your professors, advisors, counselors, and all AUB entities are set to provide you with help when you need it. I take this opportunity to urge you all to pursue your goals and fulfill your dreams. 

To our continuing students, welcome back on campus! I hope you had a good and uplifting summer break and are ready to continue your exciting journey at FAFS. We are here to support you every step of the way. 

To the FAFS esteemed faculty and staff, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for supporting FAFS' mission for excellence in teaching, research, and engagement and look forward to a successful and fulfilling year.
