This week, the American University of Beirut's President's Club celebrated the rich history of campus life with the launch of A More Abundant Life, an exhibition of student publications from 1899 to 1933, when the university was the Syrian Protestant College. Lacking a printing press, the students produced each copy by hand – one for the library's archive and one to be shared among the students. The exhibition, on display in West Hall through June 5, offers a rare glimpse into student life at the beginning of the 20th century through political writings, satire, editorials, illustrations, advertisements, sports, and more than a few love poems. The university's archives include not only the documented history of the institution from its founding in 1866, but many rare books and manuscripts, mostly in Arabic and some dating back to the Fatimid and Abbasid periods.
