Christmas Spirit at LAU
Just like every year, 2016’s Christmas shone brightly from both LAU’s Beirut and Byblos campuses. Students and staff gathered to marvel at the beautifully lit decorations, and even people from outside the university have asked for permission to cross our gates and take pictures. The enormous effort put into this year’s festive decorations made everyone feel as if LAU really was their second home.
The jewel in the crown of what the students on the Byblos campus considered “a Christmas masterpiece” was made by hand and from scratch by the university’s technicians and maintenance team. The team, who met a while back, decided to involve everyone in this year’s process by encouraging them to pitch in ideas.
Together they worked to craft a miniature town complete with its own grotto and then they decorated the buildings and fountain in warm colored lights. The joint effort and teamwork reflected the spirit of Christmas in a grand display that reached beyond the campuses to the communities.
