The MEU Student Association
Every undergraduate student registered for six or more credits becomes a voting member of Middle East University Student Association (MEUSA). This organization, guided by a constitution, allows for democratic student leadership and functions as a liaison between the students and the instructional faculty and administration.
The MEUSA has representation on certain university committees; it sponsors social, recreational, and scholarly activities, and it coordinates the publication of the University’s yearbook, Pine Echoes.

Laudy El Khoury
Laudy El Khoury, our MEU Student Association President, is a 21-year-old accounting student from Beirut. She is in her third-year and began by majoring in Business Management, but switched to Accounting because she sees the importance of accounting skills in the Lebanese job market. She will graduate from MEU next year, and afterwards plans on pursuing her Masters degree in her first academic love, Business Management.
Simon Lasu, our Student Association Vice President, is a third-year accounting student who was born in Khartoum, Sudan. He is of multinational origins as his father is from Kajo Keji, South Sudan and his mother is originally from Uganda. A former student of Nile Union Academy, he came to Middle East University after spending six years in Egypt.
Toni Haddad, our Student Association Treasurer, is a 20-year-old accounting student who was born and raised in Beirut. Currently in his third year at Middle East University, he originally enrolled here because of his uncle (who received his MBA from MEU in 2006). Although family ties were his original motivation, he is very satisfied to be attending MEU and loves how welcoming and amicable our campus is.
