Lebanese University to open branches in the north!

Recently, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Emigrants Gebran Bassil announced on Twitter that the Lebanese Cabinet approved the opening of branches of the Lebanese University (LU) in Akkar, Baalbek, and Jbeil. The school of maritime studies will also open in Batroun.

Students living in the northern regions of Lebanon have to move to Beirut to go to college. So, they have to pay for rent and utilities. By opening branches in these regions, the students can remain living in their houses and avoid the hassle of paying extra costs.

Also, Beirut is overcrowded and the increasing number of cars is leading to high congestion. Opening campuses in other Lebanese cities will reduce the traffic jam in the capital and its suburbs.


Our team works tirelessly to ensure Lebanese people have a reliable alternative to the politically-backed media outlets with their heavily-funded and dangerous propaganda machines. We've been detained, faced nonstop cyber attacks, censorship, attempted kidnapping, physical intimidation, and frivolous lawsuits draining our resources. Financial support from our readers keeps us fighting on your behalf. If you are financially able, please consider supporting The961's work. Support The961. Make a contribution now.
