Jeremiah is attending the spring semester at Ben Gurion University of the Negev through the Overseas Student Program. I am working towards my bachelors degree in Geoscience from Towson University, in Towson, MD. I am from Baltimore and have lived there my whole life. I am very excited to be learning here in Israel. I am really enjoying being immersed in the culture and in the Hebrew language.

Celebrating the end of that six weeks at the bowling alley was fun, but it also meant saying good bye to some of the friends I had made. The good news is that now if I ever go to Germany, England, Poland, or Canada I will already have people there who I know.
