Thursday May 24th was an amazing day for our Bicharaf family. During Student’s Day at College Notre Dame de Louaize, we welcomed around 150 new members into the Bicharaf club. With the help of NDL’s Bicharaf Team Members – Ibrahim, Raymond, Romy, Victor, Jimmy, and many more helpers – we were able to make this event a fun and successful one.
On Saturday March 24, Dr. Tony Feghali introduced “Bicharaf”, the ethical leadership program, to students coming from diverse universities. In the workshop, he discussed many aspects of an ethical leadership program, such as women as ethical leaders, ethics in technology, and ethical leadership. The latter was one of his subject matters in which he highlighted the importance of ethics in leadership and decision making with its appropriate steps.
During the whole workshop, the Marketing and Social Media group was very enthusiastic and energetic.
The presentation took place in an OSB lab where all the students had access to a computer and had to open a twitter account, follow Bicharaf on twitter, and tweet about what was happening in the presentation.
The treasurer session was held by Rima Farhat who gave a general presentation explaining the basics of accounting. The session had about seven students from each school, as well as observers who expressed their interest in attending this session.
The reporting team was a rather small one. About two students from each school joined— some replacing their absent peers, others out of curiosity. They all had one thing in common, though, and that was their interest in the field of reporting.
The session started on an early Saturday morning in one of the classrooms at the business school at the American University of Beirut. Around 15 students walked into the room designated for a session for presidents and vice presidents of Bicharaf clubs at partner schools. The session consisted of a brief presentation explaining the precise roles of the students and giving them tips on how to be leaders and influence others.
The Bicharaf Club secretary presentation went incredibly well. The attendees who were chosen to be secretaries looked forward to tackling the secretary job head on. The excitement of the club secretaries was remarkable. Rita Abou Jaoude and Reem Abi Ammar went through the presentation by first dividing the attendees into two groups.
Rare is a student’s opportunity to wake up early on a Saturday morning. With school pressure, afterschool activities, homework, and too many friendships to handle, it is no wonder teens are knocked out and snoozing as the dim lights announcing the weekend creep through their windows.
Three eager students from the Zahia Kaddoura Public School for Girls recently met with Lara Kerbaj, Assistant Director of Bicharaf, to share their progress on advancing academic integrity.
