It always gives me great pleasure to walk the BIU campus during the day, to hop on a bike from one of 20 locations, and to experience the hustle and bustle of academic life first-hand. In an effort to keep the good things going, I’m pleased to report that during the past month, the entire BIU community has joined together to activate the campus after the sun goes down.
With free bikes, three different jogging paths, and shuttles encircling the campus, BIU is squarely on the map for sport and recreation. The Science Bar that we have opened in the university’s cafés provides intellectually-challenging content featuring our best professors, and the scores of participants are entranced by a broad spectrum of lectures touching on issues as far-ranging as the Middle East conflict to smart cities. This is all part of our vision to connect Bar-Ilan with our neighbors in the seven surrounding municipalities, and make our campus vibrant and accessible to all. We invite you all to join the action… during the day, and into the wee hours of the night.
With my best wishes,
Prof. Arie Zaban
President of Bar-Ilan University
