From Our IUST Participants
“The most valuable part of the tour was being able to see the universities in person and to learn how different they (and the cities they are in) are from one another.” – Jeannie Bonner Simmons Ohio State University “I can confidently advise students on the benefits of studying abroad in Israel and feel more comfortable talking to both students and parents about safety and security issues. ” – Rachel Rigoli University of California – San Diego “The tour will lead directly to strong ties with one or more Israeli universities. ” – Earl F. Gibbons University of North Texas “The tour has given me enthusiasm and the desire to recruit students. It has taught me firsthand about the country and culture. I saw that Israel is safe and that the universities have excellent facilities and quality staff. I have more credibility with students and faculty (and parents) having visited the universities and the country firsthand. ” – Lisa G. Sapolis Trinity College
