- Khoka: That place with all the umbrella tables! It is perhaps that one place which ties LUMS together. No matter what the weather is like, you will always find friendly faces either singing, playing cards, eating or just chilling. -Fatima Umar
WE ARE LUMS
And we welcome you to be a part too!
The Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) is a prestigious institute that aspires to achieve academic excellence in education and research alike. With the most culturally diverse learning environments in the country, LUMS now ranks as the number one university in Pakistan. Since its inception in 1985, LUMS has strived to cater to the needs of the emerging Pakistani youth by encouraging intellectual growth and civic engagement to serve the critical needs of society. Functioning through four acclaimed schools, the university enables students to major in the fields of business, humanities, science and engineering and the law.
Set on a 100-acre campus, LUMS is a platform that allows for personal growth and achievement through stimulating a sense of ownership and responsibility amongst its students. To be a Luminite is a mark of honor and pride, and it is through the excellent facilities and remarkable exposure that students strive towards unparalleled success and innovation. With an abundance of social and recreational activity on campus, we believe that students should harmonize their personal lives by giving ample time to studies and extra curricula’s alike. Having more than 30 active student societies, LUMS proudly upholds the tradition of encouraging the talents and interests of its students.
At LUMS, you are taught to transcend boundaries and challenge yourself. It’s a wonderful experience and a journey towards unlocking your true potential. We welcome you to a university that is devoted to learning, teaching and research and aims at developing leaders who make a difference globally. The LUMS journey awaits you.
We invite you to join us at a cherished and long standing LUMS tradition, the Orientation Week! O-week, as it is commonly known, is your right of passage into LUMS, where your awkward first hello’s will be exchanged. But fear not, for we have just the right kind of events planned to successfully aid your transition into what is the ‘happening university life’. With over-excited coaches guiding you through the week, you will soon learn to find your way through the maze that is the academic block and learn that the volley court might just be the coolest place to be past midnight. Don’t worry, we will tell you all the do’s and the don’ts, the exact time you should arrive at PDC to get Biryani on Friday’s (it worries us how quickly it finishes sometimes), and of course, what Self Service means in the world of Zambeel. We offer a week worth of networking and socialization prospects alongside our legacy events, and of course, free DPs for everyone who wishes to attend (Disclaimer: There is a strict no pouting policy. Just kidding. Not really.).
So join us at O-week 2018 to kick start what we assure you will be the best four or five years of your life.
The Team Behind Everything
We work together to make this experience worthwhile for you!
Here is a basic idea of the kind of events that we tirelessly spent mapping out. If you don’t attend, we have three words for you: Shame, Shame, Shame (GoT reference, anyone?).
And if you think this is it, you are in for a lot of surprises. So mark your calendars and help us in welcoming you to the life of a Luminite. We hope you’re as excited as we are. We welcome you with arms wide open, Batch of 2022 and 2023!
