Meet Our Students
These young Syrian scholars all graduated from UE and are now living and working in the US, UK, and Canada. They enriched our campus with their presence, went into schools to share their culture and stories, and we helped them a little with internships and financial support on their way to creating a safe new start for themselves and their families. Click on the photos to learn more about them. We are endlessly proud of all the young Syrian women and men worldwide who have made the best of a tragic situation.
