| I picked to come to Tel Aviv University because I wanted a migration lab of experience. I wanted to be able to study these issues in the classroom and be able to walk outside and see migration on the streets and in the people that I interact with and the relationships that I build.

Shauna Ruda, class of 2012/13
With a BA in anthropology, Denver, Colorado native Shauna Ruda was eager to find ways to interact with the global Jewish world.
"I had always wanted to live in Israel, and I was fascinated with the idea of coming to school here to work with the country's most vulnerable populations," Ruda says. "We can sit in a classroom talking about immigation policies, but here it's a part of daily life. I hope this will give me the tools to begin conversations about the major issues impacting our world in a meaningful way."
