We are both electrical and computer engineers! We met in our first year, and were just acquaintances. In our second summer we both took EECE 330 (data structures and algorithms) with Dr Artail, and we were both struggling with probation. We started studying together because when you’re on probation no one wants to study with you! So we helped each other out. Fast forward 3 years we’re engaged! He went on to pursue a masters degree in the U.S, while I’m working for a reputable engineering firm in Beirut. AUB brought us together, what a magical place!
Iyad and I met during my second semester at AUB; at the Main Gate precisely. Soon this encounter turned into flames of love which is now crowned by our little daughter Anna. We both live and work in Lebanon. We owe AUB, Bliss street and Hamra our lives because they gave us theirs.
I met Adba when i joined AUB fall of 1983. On August 16, 1984 our love story started and Van Dyck dormitory witnessed this for many years. We joined medical school together . On October 2, 1993, we got married. Our first child Joya was born in AUBMC on November 24, 1994. She is now 21 years old and she graduated from AUB Business School in 2015. My second child Toni was born also in AUBMC & he is 18 years old now and he applied for AUB for next year. It is because of AUB , my 2 two precious children existed and i will be forever indebted & grateful to AUB.
We met at school when we were just 6. We were best friends for years, but our love story only blossomed at AUB, while taking our long daily walks on the beautiful, green campus, talking for hours and hours and falling in love. We got married in 2008. We went back to AUB to get our MBA’s in 2011.
My first day as an AUB staff, I met the the girl of my dreams. It was her last day at AUB. She was graduating. It was just the right time for me to join AUB and meet my other half. 5 years later we got married and now have our lovely Maya who loved AUB.
“We met for the first time by the Main Gate in October 1998 on the first day of classes. What started out as a friendship led to marriage in 2015. AUB has played a huge role in both of our lives. Whenever we have the opportunity to visit, we look forward to taking a walk and reminiscing on AUB’s beautiful campus.” Aline and Hagop
