Lebanese students are banned from complaining on social media


Lebanese university students have been put under a lot of stress this past year. From the revolution to the corona virus, then the revolution again. Everything seems to be adding up. Students enrolled at the Lebanese university have always opted for social media to share both their concerns and frustrations which have been evident for some time.

Unfortunately, that is about to stop. Not willing, but through obligatory regulations in which the University has issued, banning students who wish to enroll in the Lebanese University for the academic year of 2020-2021 from sharing their thoughts about the university on social media. Students would have to pledge against expressing their feelings on social media. In other words, agree to oppressing their freedom of speech.

The university claims that this sort of behavior is causing destruction to the institution’s reputation and therefore students should instead email any complaints to the administration rather than express them online.
