In schools and universities, we are given almost all the tools that we need to build our future. Such tools consist of mental expansion tools which we use in our technical lives and other type of tools, ones we don’t get, but we build through our journey. Almost every person has been a student for around 17 years; despite the knowledge we earned through these academic years, a human being’s personality has been stitched in every stage of this long period of time since in this era, a human being is in a very sensitive developmental phase that will define his/her character and draw their future.
If we divide this social chain into two sets of rings, we will surely realize that school rings are the ones that initiated the chain, but college social life is the other set of rings that expanded and kept the progress of the chain since it falls in a more socially independent period of time in the life of an individual. Universities’ social rings or circles are wider because of the elevated social exposure but stress and overwhelming duties will always play a destructive role in adults’ social lives particularly for students of weak social communication. Covid 19 pandemic was a temporary social turning point in the past few years, students woke up to a day when they are incapable of walking around the university’s campus on coffee breaks and meet new people every single day. Therefore, socially engaging the University of Balamand students by enhancing their gathering spaces and developing the university’s society to become a new ring for a new social chain is a project for the future societies
