From the Advancement Office

Friends and Supporters of Bethlehem University,
Greetings from Bethlehem!

We have reached the golden jubilee anniversary year, now counting down to only a few more weeks remaining to celebrate the founding date of the university in October.

In retrospect, fifty years are a lot of time to reckon with. Fifty years are long years to remember the hardships and trials that twinned with the founding struggles and cherish the rewards of having overcome the difficulties because of so many persons rooting for us and countless benefactors who were in solidarity with us.

Our newly built and well-equipped Cardinal Foley Hall – the Tarek Ahmed Juffali Faculty of Nursing and Health Sciences attracts many students who believe in having quality education and secured employment upon graduation. The soon-to-be-opened Students & Visitors Center consisting of fitness rooms, a theater hall, a visitors’ center, and a basketball court along with a terrace for recreation, will give Bethlehem University a state-of-the-art complex for the service of the community at large. We are grateful for the unwavering support of the Catholic Church and church-based organizations, countless individual donors as well as the generosity of many “Bethlemites” around the world.

Through the years, Bethlehem University has chosen new paths and continued innovating in a community that values and encourages interreligious acceptance, respect, and tolerance of individual diversity.

On its Golden Jubilee, Bethlehem University stands proud, blessed, and grateful to God and all our donors who continue to believe in the value of Christian education.

We remind you to read our “Bethlehem University” magazine for more news and feature stories about our students, faculty, graduates, and friends.
