Greetings from Jerusalem!

By Sarah Chandler '16 on January 14, 2014

Hello from Israel! As part of the Sophomore Residential Seminar, I got to travel to Jerusalem with the rest of my classmates and my professor for an 8 day trip of a lifetime. While we were in Jerusalem we saw the Dome of the Rock, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and the Western Wall. We walked the ramparts surrounding the Old City, visited the Mount of Olives and hiked to Masada, an ancient fort, for the sunrise. I also got to swim in the Dead Sea, completing a lifelong dream of mine! The memories we made, the food we ate and the people I met, as well as those I traveled with, made this one of the best weeks of my life.
