In early 2005, the Students' Forum's team of volunteers and staff began preparing to open our new office near Bethlehem University and Al-Quds Open University. Unlike our old location, the new office is spacious and conveniently located, which helps us offer our services to more students. It has also contributed to our new activities and programs, which serve university and secondary school students in different ways (academic, psychological, artistic, and cultural). On January 31st, 2005, the Forum held an inaugural celebration of the new office. The ribbon was cut by Abdallah Shakarna, head of the Bethlehem Education Office. Numerous professors from Bethlehem University and Al-Quds Open University attended the celebration, along with representatives of many local organizations in Bethlehem.
