From the Chancellor
  • I am pleased to welcome you to join me at The
    Alamein University for its inaugural academic
    year in September 2011. You will be part of the
    pioneering first generation of Alamein
    undergraduates helping inaugurate what we are
    committed to building into a world-class
    university of wide reaching distinction. From
    the beginning, we are staffing the University
    with a first rate faculty staffed principally
    from the rich resources of our partner,
    California State University. Thus, even the
    inaugural cohort of first year students will
    receive their instruction from the best educators
    that American higher education has to offer.
  • As each year of your University experience
    progresses, you will be witness to and a
    participant in an exciting growth evolution. We
    intend to make the University a lifetime source
    of pride for its graduates
  • One of the distinctive strengths of Alamein
    University will be its international reach. We
    aspire to make the University attractive to a
    cultural diverse student body. I have long been
    an advocate of world awareness. Globalization is
    real and todays university students are best
    served if they are prepared to interact
    effectiveness among diverse cultures. As an
    international university, Alamein will be ever
    committed preparing its graduates to take a
    leadership role on the world stage.

    Alamein Universitys tremendous future. The sky
    is the limit. Come fly there with us.

El Alamein and environs
  • Historically, El Alamein is perhaps best known as
    a turning point battle site during World War II
    when British Field Marshall Montgomery, The Hero
    of El Alamein defeated the legendary Nazi
    Desert Fox Rommel. The Mediterranean shore is
    has some of the most historic locales in the
    world, most notably in Alexandria, about an hour
    east of The Alamein University. In addition to
    being Egypts second largest city, Alexandria was
    home to one of the ancient seven wonders of the
    world, the Alexandria Lighthouse along with the
    oldest library in the history of mankind.
  • Today, El Alamein is part of a Mediterranean
    shoreline building boom that is rapidly turning
    the region into a resort center that may someday
    rival the French and Italian Riviera. The Egypt
    Rivieras southerly locale makes the year round
    temperature more conducive to resort activity.
    During the summer months, the weather by the
    Mediterrean is so much more moderate than inland
    centers like Cairo that the destination draws
    massive tourist trade that is behind the
    development boom
