Beirut, 15/07/2008- On Thursday, July 10, 2008, a big number of Haigazian University alumni attended a reception dinner, which took place in the Mugar Garden of the University.
The theme of the reunion, Promoting Unity... Celebrating Peace, was a perfect opportunity for the old graduates, to return to campus and reconnect with each other, especially after last May's political turmoil, which kept most Lebanese apart.
The program opened with the welcoming words of Mira Yardemian, the University's Public Relations Director, who appreciated the fervent response of the alumni, to come in such big numbers showing gratitude and respect to their university.
University President, Rev. Dr. Paul Haidostian briefed on the recent developments at the University, such as the graduation, the US accreditation process, the site work of the newly acquired heritage building and the USAID grant. Haidostian invited all alumni to always help and support their university.
Raja Mouawad, from the class of 2005, was the Master of Ceremony, musically helped by Jihad Wehbe on the guitar.
Artist Andre Kalfayan added value on this special event by transforming a white canvas into a beautiful art work.
Towards the end a lottery draw of 3 prizes (air ticket to Cyprus, a painting and a necklace) were distributed to lucky winners.
