Tel Aviv University Celebrates Its First Year of Existence

A new Department of Hebrew Studies, Philosophy and Literature will be opened at Tel Aviv University in October, according to an announcement today by Mayor Chaim Levanon. At the same time, the Mayor announced, the present High School of Law, Economics and Administration will be merged with the university.

Mayor Levanon made his announcements today at ceremonies celebrating the end of Tel Aviv University’s first year. He revealed that plans for the construction of a new University City here are under preparation. The University, he said, will expand its program – physical as well as intellectual – to serve this area and make it possible for more students to pursue their studies here, without incurring the additional expense of living in Jerusalem, where the Hebrew University is located.
