    source of pride for its graduates
        El Alamein and environs
                         Historically, El Alamein is perhaps best known as a
                             turning point battle site during World War II when
Pictures/map of region       British Field Marshall Montgomery, „The Hero of El
                             Alamein‟ defeated the legendary Nazi “Desert Fox”
  to Alexandria              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 Egypt‟s 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

                             resort center that may someday rival the French and
                             Italian Riviera. The Egypt Riviera‟s 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
