For most young people, starting university after 12 years of school feels like starting a new life. It is a new environment, new people, new expectations. Bethlehem University wanted to make this transition as easy as possible for it's over 900 freshmen who started classes on August 21.

During the Orientation Day, which took place on August 16-17, they were welcomed by the Executive Council of Bethlehem University, including Dr. Mahmoud Hammad, Dean of Students, and Br. Peter Bray, Vice Chancellor of Bethlehem University. Br. Peter addressed the students who gathered in the University's auditorium, emphasizing that Bethlehem University for them is more than a school, but also a safe place.

Afterwards, four members of the "Student Ambassador Program“ introduced the freshmen to the idea of being an ambassador for your university and also their homeland, presenting their situation of life to visitors from all over the world.

The day was concluded by tours through the campus for which the students where separated in small groups and lead by older students. They learned about the organizational structure of BU and how to find their way around campus.

Bethlehem University welcomed all new students and wished them the best luck for their studies. Br. Peter said: "I hope to see all of you gathered in this exact place again in 4 years, together with your parents and friends, proudly holding your Graduation Certificate and saying 'I did it!'“
