Why Haifa?

I decided to come and study at the University of Haifa because it seemed like a fantastic opportunity to immerse myself in a completely new culture as well as to see the State of Israel, something of importance to me because of my Judaism. 

Favorite Arabic Word?

Yallah

      What do you like most about Haifa?

What I like most about Haifa are the beautiful views from the top of the carmel, you get to see the sea, and the entire city below.  Its especially beautiful at night atop the main building. I also really like being surrounded by different cultures, and being able to interact with Arabs and Druze.
