Welcome Class of 2015

Grand welcome party was held in lush green Shumaila Garden decorated with beautiful stalls by different societies in the Main Campus on November 24, 2011.

Dr. Shahid Amjad Chaudhry, the Rector Lahore School of Economics welcomed the fresh students and gave an overview of the achievements of the School. The Lahore School of Economics - a distinguished seat of learning known for high quality teaching and research. The Lahore School of Economics or “The Lahore School” was established in 1993 and chartered by the Government of Punjab in January 1997, through the Lahore School of Economics Act 1997 (Provincial Assembly of the Punjab- Act II of 1997).

Most of the extra circular and co-academic activities in the School are conducted by the students themselves through different societies – Arts Society, Debating Society, Film and Media Club, Literature Society, Photography Society, Social Awareness Society, Sports Society and Welfare Society. All these societies were introduced to incoming class of 2015 who were dressed in black (boys) and red (girls) attires. Creative and very amusing announcements by Chishti and Aleeshay Khar and various performances by students of Lahore School also amused the audience that also included a large number of Alumni.


For new students, joining the Lahore School of Economics signals the moment of their initiation as students in an awesome environment. The Lahore School is a university that is proud of its students, faculty, green walkways, courtyards (and peacocks), libraries and computer laboratories. Creative and academic milieu in the Lahore School guarantees success - though certainly in part attributable to their hard work and intelligence. In fact, the Lahore School brings together inspired people who, together and individually, do remarkable things. The School knows that students will embrace the good of this place. Starting right now, this place is yours. You are welcome!
