In collaboration with Faculty of Engineering (FE) and the Office of Development and Alumni Affairs at Notre Dame University- Louaize , the Engineering Alumni Group organized their first gathering titled, "Friends at the Sunset,” where graduates from different engineering cohorts participated.
Over 200 FE graduates met on August 24, 2018, for an on-campus get-together under the setting sun. Notable alumni attendees included Member of Parliament Dr. Ali Darwish. Also present were FE Dean Dr. Michel el-Hayek, chairpersons, faculty and staff as well as Alumni Association representatives.
Assistant Director of the Department of Alumni Affairs at NDU Karla Sfeir warmly greeted the guests and stressed the importance of connecting and networking.
The Engineering Alumni Group was represented by Michel Abou Chedid who welcomed his fellow alumni and noted that they would soon be joined by the first cohort of Petroleum Engineering graduates. He urged everyone to remain true to their alma mater.
For his part, Dr. Hayek said, “Our students are now part of the Faculty decision-making process." He also thanked everyone for joining the gathering and stressed the importance of the alumni and how this important body could give back to their alma mater.
The smashing event was enlivened by a captivating musical performance against the backdrop of a breathtaking sunset student Maria Badran and alumna Marie Nassar.
