We are both professors at the University of Rochester Medical Center; Ghinwa in infectious diseases and I in neurology. Thirty four years on, AUB and its surroundings remains the one place where we feel most at home, most at ease.

Kassem Jouni '09 & Nadine Mohanna '14

The first time I saw Nadine was in the FAFS computer lab. I can't explain it, but I was instantly drawn to her. Our love journey started in 2012 and we have been together ever since. Until now, we enjoy our jogging and walking around the beautiful campus. We recently celebrated our 2-year marriage anniversary having a long walk in AUB where we met all those years ago. We are forever grateful to our beloved AUB for pioneering the beginning of a great love story and we wish it will bring the same magic to our coming generations.

Nasri S. Kawar '56 & Suad Nujaim Kawar '58

We met at AUB in 1955 when I was a student in Agricultural Sciences and Suad was working as a secretary in the Dean's office. We got married in 1960 and went to the US where I obtained my doctorate at Penn State. While there, we had two boys, Ramzi and Shafik. We returned to Lebanon in 1963 where I started as a faculty member in FAFS. We had two girls in Beirut, Rania and Amal. Both Ramzi and Shafik graduated from AUB and Rania studied for one year there before we moved to the US in 1984. I worked with FAO-UN in Saudi Arabia from 1986-95 before returning to AUB in 1995 until I retired in 2007. I am now Professor Emeritus.
