The location of the program in Beer-Sheva was wonderful.  Our ability to live in dormitories with regular Israeli students was an invaluable opportunity and allowed me to integrate into Israeli society and practice Hebrew as much as possible. 
 
Beer-Sheva is an ideal location - smaller and yet highly diverse.  By staying away from the international areas, particularly the Americanized ones, it was much easier to feel a part of Israel. The University campus is very friendly and aesthetically beautiful.
