About us

Outlook has been the independent student publication of the American University of Beirut since 1949.
Committed to being the voice of the student body and to reporting their needs, interests, and achievements, Outlook covers topics ranging from campus news to national and international matters, and includes sociopolitical, cultural, entertainment, and opinion articles.
The weekly publication is made entirely of a team of students consisting of reporters, writers, editors, multimedia handlers, layout and graphic designers and 12,000 print and online readers who belong to a diverse community of international and local students, faculty, alumni, staff, and visitors.

The newspaper has been cherished by the AUB community for decades and continues to strive for growth in quality and diversity.
