I love going here and living in New York City! I have everything I need a few minute walk away. I’ve only been here one semester, and I’ve learned so much. I’ve made so many great friends in my classes. Teachers are always so helpful with whatever questions I have. They really care about the student. I love that the classes are small so I can have more individualized attention during classes.

I love attending Yeshiva University's Wurzweiler School of Social Work. My courses are very interesting and engaging in person and also online. The Professors keep us challenged while providing a wealth of knowledge. General assignments, mid-terms and finals are exciting to work on individually or especially in groups. I am actively learning so much.
The scores i gave express my high satisfaction!!!
My name is Yuval Nitzan, 20 years old, from Gan Yavne, Israel. I recently approached YU to become a student for Fall 2019. I'm the oldest in my family. I have another sister at age 18 and little brother at age 13. I have been released from Military service, where I served as an officer's assignment. I have been recognized as an outstanding athlete.
I have set myself a personal goal to study and play basketball in US college when I was 18. Since then, I have invested lots of efforts to be qualified and to make my dream become true. I took a SAT course & did the exam 3 times, to improve the score. I also had a private class for Mathematics, who helped me to raise my score in the Math matriculation certificate and to improve my GPA.
