Totally worthwhile. I met so many relatives and learned that I loved the Israeli culture. Had a great experience playing with the university basketball team. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I have become much better at Hebrew and learned a lot about myself in the process. Language immersion was a challenge that changed my life. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

About

In addition to Hebrew instruction and content-courses, students on Middlebury's School in Israel have various internship or volunteer opportunities from which to choose. The program location at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev provides an effective and authentic immersion experience.

The BGU campus – known for its strong and active Student Union – offers regular activities such as performances at the Student’s House, shows, day trips, and various cultural events.  BGU is popular with Israeli students because of its vibrant campus life. Connected to the local community through various social programs, Ben-Gurion University serves as a bridge to the local community and it actively supports and facilitates the students’ connection and integration in the local community.

While Beer Sheva is a rapidly developing city, it is not subject to throngs of tourists, as are Tel Aviv and Jerusalem and it is highly unlikely that you will hear any English spoken in the city.  The Brandeis University/Middlebury Program in Israel offers academic rigor, cultural engagement, and freedom to explore in an authentic Israeli city recently branded as “Israel’s Opportunities Capital”.
