Beyond the Classroom
Sofaer’s small class sizes and conducive atmosphere allow students to develop strong friendships and professional relationships with their classmates. To enhance the students’ experience and promote group cohesion, Sofaer’s Manager of Student Affairs promotes and directs cultural and social activities throughout the year.
The mid-year class trip to Mitzpe Ramon is an immersive experience that provides students with an up-close look at the startup scene in Southern Israel. Students have the opportunity to explore a one of a kind region of Israel and witness its culture of entrepreneurship and unique geography. This is a chance for students to explore the Israel that exists beyond the classroom and to strengthen the relationship of the cohort in a recreational setting.
Mitzpe Ramon is a town in the Negev (the desert) in Southern Israel. The town is known for its unique geography as it is situated on the northern ridge of the Ramon Crater. The trip is a great way to explore Israel outside of Tel Aviv and highlights include a jeep ride in the Ramon Crater, learning about entrepreneurship and innovation in the Negev, visiting a boutique winery and of course, eating delicious food.
