Lebanese Collegiate Network (LCN)
An organization committed to serving University Lebanese Clubs

        The Lebanese Collegiate Network (LCN) was established in response to an overwhelming need to foster positive relationships between existing University Lebanese Clubs (ULC) and their student members. The LCN board invites all ULCs to join and benefit from this organization by visiting the official LCN website at

        The foremost purpose of LCN, per constitution, is to foster, connect and develop Lebanese collegiate clubs, students and alumni within the United States. The LCN is a non-political organization created for the benefit of University Lebanese Clubs and their students by encouraging and promoting their academic and professional growth. The strength of the LCN lies within the commitment of members to promoting and engaging this organization on a national level.

        Students who are subscribing members (recognized by a ULC of the LCN) will qualify for several LCN opportunities. As described further on the LCN website, the LCN student exchange program, the LCN academic excellence scholarship and the Outstanding ULC award are great rewards for the LCN Membership. For Membership inquiries, please contact the VP of Membership Sevag Sislian at [email protected]

        The LCN Board knows that without generous donations and support from the Lebanese, academic and professional community nothing would be possible. Please help support the LCN financially by mailing in your donations or using our website. Your generosity will fund a $10,000 operating budget which directly benefits the students. The LCN is currently pursuing IRS tax-exempt status. Once a Tax ID number has been secured, it will be submitted to you for your use. If you have any questions, please contact the LCN Treasurer Serge Haddad at [email protected].

        Since its launch, the LCN has hosted two successful dinners in Los Angeles, California and Washington DC. The attendees for both events consisted of students, young professionals and established members of the Lebanese Community from all over the Southern California and DC areas. Seven University Lebanese Clubs were present and were given the opportunity to introduce the community to the successes of their Clubs. Students were also given the oppurtunity to create networks with other Lebanese students in the same community. Furthermore, attendees were introduced to the LCN, its goals, missions, future events and numerous programs offered to ULCs. Through the generous donations of attendees, the LCN was able to raise enough funds to support the programs offered.

        The LCN further invites the Lebanese Community to attend the 2008 LCN Annual Conference on March 28-30 2008 at the University of Maryland. Hotel reservations can be made at the local Comfort Inn. The intent of the 2008 LCN Conference is to develop University Lebanese Club students professionally and academically. More information regarding this event can be found on the LCN website. All conference related questions will be fielded by the Vice President of Events Julien Chemali at [email protected].

        For all questions or for more information, please contact the LCN President Patrick Sislian at [email protected]. Thank you for your support and we look forward to working with you throughout the year.
