A while ago you spent your lovely high school years studying the works of Aristotle and Socrates… while dozing in and out of naps.
Thankfully, you’re in college now and have spent more than enough time in a toga.
And if you’re like most Jewish-American college students you’ve already got your taste of Greek culture since you’re probably a member of AEPi, AEPhi, SDT, ZBT or SAM.
But now, that you’re a wee bit older and wiser it’s time to switch up your routine and be different, live on the edge.

Not convinced Jerusalem is better than studying abroad in any European city yet?
Would its hidden nightlife scene in the old industrial spots of Talpiot spark your party side?
What about the prestigious Hebrew University; put that on a resume and you’ll have talking points for dayssss.
What if we told you could fly and see your bigs and littles in European cities for the little cash and have a Snapchat worthy story in an instant?
Then again, why would you leave the paradise you’re already in because living in Jerusalem gives you access to all of this:
Oh, and we didn’t mention the food yet. That’s right. Here in Jerusalem, you’ll surely fall in the love with the Mediterranean diet of greens, rich olive oils and most of all hummus and shawarma. #NOMNOMNOM
