About 100 students participated in this training which was given by the Dean of Students Office staff in cooperation with the Palestine Global Platform. The training focused on ice-breaking, communication and time management skills.


Thanks and Gratitude

The Dean of Students Office organized an orientation day for new students on Wednesday, 21 August 2019, in cooperation with the faculties and departments. There will be another meeting for them in their faculties with the Deans and academic staff on Thursday, 29 August 2019, during the activity hour.

The Dean of Students Office would like to extend sincere gratitude and appreciation to the BU community -administration, faculty, staff in all departments, and student counselors - for their cooperation and help in welcoming the new students during the orientation days for the new academic year 2019- 2020. Your active participation and cooperation reflected the warmth and friendliness of Bethlehem University.

As we start a new academic year, we would like to wish all BU students a happy, healthy and successful year. We would like to remind you that we are here for you, to make your life at BU campus active, fruitful, enjoyable and successful.


Palestine Ambassador for Heritage and Folklore

Bethlehem University student, Samar Khalid Al- Qawasmi from the Shucri Ibrahim Dabdoub Faculty of Business Administration, won the title “Palestine Ambassador for Heritage and Folklore”. Samar won in a competition organized by the Palestinian Association for Culture, Arts and Heritage in Gaza and the International Folklore Forum in Cairo, Egypt. The competition was held in partnership with the Palestinian Universities and sponsored by the League of Arab States and UNESCO. The results were announced during a festival that was held in Gaza and Al-Bireh city on Sunday, 25 August 2019. Samar was accompanied by Dr. Micheal Sansour, Ms. Mai Jaber, and some students.

Samar was nominated by an internal committee formed from Dr. Hala Rashid, Dr. Said Ayyad, and Mai Jaber to interview the candidates. She will take part in the International Heritage and Folklore Festival which will be held in Cairo on 5 October 2019 to compete for the title of Ambassador of Heritage and Folklore internationally.

The success of our students is essentially our success as a University. Congratulations to the BU community and congratulations dear Samar we are so proud of you.
