Equestrian south westBethlehem University welcomed on Friday, July 1st, 2011 a group of visitors from the Lieutenancy of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem - South Western Lieutenancy. The group was a pleasure to have on campus and it was a wonderful time introducing them to students, and sharing more about the history of the university.

Guest Relations Officer - Mr. Demitri Awwad greeted the group upon their arrival and took them for a short tour around campus. In Furno Hall, Br. Peter Bray - Vice Chancellor welcomed the group and expressed his gratitude for their visit and continued support of Bethlehem University.  Br. Peter Bray also spoke of the importance of such a visit, in particular to the students, “Our young men and women love to share their dreams, stories and aspirations and when you come here it means great deal to them as they are able to communicate that important part of their lives.”

Equestrian south westBethlehem University is once again thankful for the significant contribution that is provided by the South Western Lieutenancy. One of our former graduates, who benefited from their support, Tala Karker ’06, who earned her Masters degree at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas is currently working at an American school in Ramallah as a librarian.
