Seeing the current situation in Lebanon and the uncertainty regarding the opening and closure of roads, as well as resumption of classes, we, the students of LAU, petition our university to resume classes in an online format for those who cannot make it to university. Most students live in areas where the roads are being closed, blocked, or unsafe during these tumultuous times. Some students have even fled the country for fear of their safety, since they're mainly international students. Even our professors couldn't make it due to their area of residence.

As such, we urge LAU to please open online classes for us so we can resume our work from the safety of our homes and to catch up on all missed material. 

LAU has an experience with online classes, since it opened its very first online class, Artificial Intelligence. As such, we believe it won't be difficult to extend this approach to other classes as the university sees fit.
