The newly established Careers Department is proud to have hosted Brummana High School’s first annual University Fair, hosting 27 universities, organisations and companies dealing with admissions to universities in Lebanon and abroad on 25 September 2019 in Khoury Hall. Over 300 students, parents, faculty, and staff attended. Inspiring and mobilising our community, students and parents had the opportunity to listen and ask about higher education academic programmes. The chance to meet universities face to face, by interacting with official representatives, is a key benefit of university events such as this and the students that formed around some of the institutions’ tables reflected this. Students and parents responded positively about the appeal of getting immediate, personalised responses to questions, finding out more about the programs and funding opportunities on offer and getting an idea of the application process – all reasons to attend in person, rather than just stick to online research. A special thanks goes out to Mr. David Gray and the senior management team, the teaching faculty and staff, the BHS Parents Association, the OSA and all the students and parents who took part in making this first of many university fairs a success.
