Students at LAU are interested in their studies as well as the sense of camaraderie and excitement that comes with being part of a vibrant campus community. But LAU’s students should also think about the next steps in their lives as well as the next class or next weekend excursion, and both campuses have guidance offices that can help. We spoke with Aya El-Mir in Beirut and Rana Sakr in Byblos about how they can help students preparing to begin their careers.
