The Monash Lebanese Student Society (MLSS) has been a lively club for 2 years and counting. We as a club try to incorporate the fun and vibrant tradition of Lebanon with uni life and try to bring about a wholesome community filled with fun, love and culture. This club is a perfect opportunity to make new friends and to get closer to the Lebanese tradition and learn more about the Lebanese way of life.
Currently this year we have participated in the Euro Club night and One World Festival and have plenty lined up for semester 2, with a heap of food events where you’ll find HSPs, Tabouli and Hummus and the hottest party in the calendar; the Arabian Nights AXP (After Exam Party). YALLA, don’t miss out on the fun, get your dabke shoes on and your taste buds excited and join MLSS. Check us out on Facebook and Instagram to hear all the details.
