Staff Profile: Ramzieh Saad

Ramzieh Saad

Students enrolled in the work study program should be familiar with the face of Ramza Saad, assistant in the Work Study Program, who has served in that position for nearly eight years now.

A regular at the Office of Student Affairs, Saad serves as the liaison between students and departments within the Work Study program. She explained that the program offers students work at AUB and the Medical Center. She said that she is responsible for catering to university department needs by filling in the vacancies students can hold. This entails direct and day-to-day interaction with students, making Saad a vital link between student and university.

Saad earned a degree in history from the Lebanese University before taking English courses at the American Language Center in Beirut. She said that her job at AUB is a far cry from her major, which she studied out of interest in the topic. After graduating in 1976, she took a job in accounting at a company in Ashrafieh before the Lebanese civil war forced her to leave her position. Saad occupied various jobs throughout the war before deciding to apply for a position at AUB. She was hired to work in Jafet Library, but after a brief six-month stint, she was transferred to her current position in the Student Affairs Office. She said she enjoys the daily interaction with the students, such as helping them acquire a desired position at a department, because it keeps her young at heart. Saad said that working at AUB is like working with family, and expressed her content with the pleasant conditions employees are granted at the University. Part of the joys of the position, Saad added, was taking walks on campus where she can observe the daily life of the students.

Saad enjoys traveling, and makes it a point to travel once a year. She has been to several countries such as Egypt, Australia, and Italy, which is her favorite travel destination.
