Lebanon is a beautiful country on the Mediterranean Sea.  It is known in the Middle East for its natural beauty and mountains.  It is often highlighted that you can snow ski and swim in the Mediterranean on the same day during some seasons.  There are three main languages in Lebanon:  Arabic, English & French.  There is also a range of religious faiths including both Shia and Sunni Muslims, Orthodox Christians, Maronite Christians, Druze, and a small population of Protestants.  Middle East University is the only Protestant university in Lebanon and the only Adventist university in the MENA Union, serving 20 countries.  We have a very multicultural staff and student body.
