BYU Jerusalem Center Cancels Classes Again

PROVO, UTAH -- BYU has decide that the risks in Israel remain too large and has cancelled classes at its Jerusalem center for the Spring term. The cancellation marks the second consecutive term that classes will not be held in the center and follows a Fall semester cut short by the violence in the Middle East.

"We are being careful right now. We don't want to get the student's hopes up," said BYU spokeswoman Carri P. Jenkins. She notes that the University has warned affected students that cancellations are possible, "They do work with the students who were planning to go. We encouraged them to have a backup plan."

About 175 students attend the program each semester, making up a large portion of the 1,800 BYU students that study abroad each year. BYU's Study Abroad program is the largest International study program in the U.S. The University has not yet made a final decision about opening the center for either the summer term or for fall semester.
