The University of California has suspended its junior year abroad program in Israel and is recalling its 27 remaining students there, though not all are heeding the call. Citing "dramatically escalating violence" in the region, UC made the recall official on Thursday, April 11 for its students enrolled mainly at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv University. An additional 28 UC students, who had enrolled at the Israeli universities last fall, have already returned because they had completed the semester or for personal reasons.
